Hollywood actor Tracy Morgan told PJ Media that he wants President Obama and Congress to “get rid of guns.”
Actress Kate Walsh and Actor Tim Daly told PJ Media that more gun control will not take away anyone’s constitutional rights.
The celebrities made their comments over the White House Correspondents’ Dinner weekend in Washington.
Morgan was asked if he is disappointed that Obama’s gun-control initiatives have not been passed by Congress.
“I mean, if we could get guns under control, if we could get rid of them, I’m with all of that. I’ve had a lot of friends that have died violently from guns. Of course. I hope that wasn’t a booby trap question,” Morgan said at a Creative Coalition event launching White House Correspondents’ Dinner weekend.
“Of course I want to get rid of guns. My father fought in the Vietnam War and he forbid us to have guns when he came home when we were little, so yes.”
