Bruce Willis spoke out in support of the second amendment at a Die Hard promotional event, risking a political shitstorm

Bruce Willis spoke to the Associated Press as part of the promotional tour for A Good Day to Die Hard, so naturally he had the following to say about gun control:
I think that you can’t start to pick apart anything out of the Bill of Rights without thinking that it’s all going to become undone. If you take one out or change one law, then why wouldn’t they take all your rights away from you?
Support of constitutional rights like the first and second amendments is, of course, contrary to everything that liberal Hollywood and an internet-censorship driven entertainment industry stands for (liberals and conservatives both agree on the abolishment of the rights in amendments three through seven). Willis also denied allegations that glorification of violence in entertainment media is to blame for real life violence, which should also anger conservatives, who are traditionally in favor of censoring anything that liberals are not in favor of censoring.
"I think there is a lot of common ground between liberals and conservatives," said a teary-eyed Republican House Speaker John Boehner, who is, as his name implies, a giant penis. There was no particular reason for the tears. He just cries a lot.
"We are both in favor of slowly taking away the basic rights of the American people, as Bruce Willis is afraid of," he told us. "We just disagree on which ones should go first. Conservatives would prefer to eliminate the right to happiness, while liberals would prefer to eliminate the right to liberty. We are both in favor of eliminating the right to life, as our mutual support of drone strikes and the assassination of American citizens under suspicion of terrorism proves."
Boehner then left to meet up with professional wrestler Hulk Hogan at the Grotesque Orange Tanning Salon.
"As a person who was integral in the advancement of gay rights by playing a person who was integral in the advancement of gay rights in a movie, I'm appalled that Bruce Willis would violate the sanctity of Hollywood's liberal activism by having an opinion that disagrees with our approved groupthink," commented Sean Penn, the leader of liberal Hollywood and a douchebag.
For Willis, it seems like an impossible situation to win in, which is why it's usually advisable for celebrities (and politicians) to keep politics out of entertainment, but The Outhouse applauds Willis for standing up for what he believes in, regardless of the potential career suicide he's in danger of committing.
Maybe once his movie career is over, he should run for president. He couldn't possibly do worse than Ronald Reagan.
