Hollywood actor Matt Damon used a press conference in Australia over the Fourth of July weekend to discuss his desire for a massive confiscation of U.S. guns.

“You guys did it here in one fell swoop [in 1996] and I wish that could happen in my country, but it’s such a personal issue for people that we cannot talk about it sensibly,” Mr. Damon said during a promotional engagement in Sydney for the movie “Jason Bourne.”

The action star went on to say people get too “emotional” when it comes to “not selling AK47s to people on terror watchlists.”

As we proceed in this election year, expect the American leftists to become less coy about their intentions, especially now that their Queen is getting a pass from the FBI on her email “confusion.”

Their “wink-wink, nudge-nudge” approach to gun laws thus far has featured repeated proclamations that they really are coming for our guns. They just want “sensible” gun reform, right?

Now Damon says we can’t talk “sensibly” about guns while dreaming of a national gun confiscation, which is all you need to know about what their version of sensible is.

It’s also very galling when people who can afford safer neighborhoods and attend public events that are heavily protected by private, armed security pontificate about what us regular folk need to defend ourselves and our families.

Keep your myopic, elitist Lefty world view to yourself, Matty. Most of us have to live in Reality, a place you haven’t visited for a long, long time.
