Quentin Tarantino shared his views on the debate over gun ownership in America.
There have been more than 140 mass shootings in the United States by 2023, with gun law activists complaining about the lack of progress on the new restrictions.
In a new interview with the Spanish newspaper Nationthe Godless Basterds the director – whose films are known for their extreme violence and bloodshed – was asked for his thoughts on the matter.
“There are always two sides,” he said. “We certainly don’t need as many automatic weapons as we have. There should be better laws. [But] I have a gun at home.”
Tarantino later clarified that his gun was “for protection”.
Elsewhere in the interview, he revealed his favorite tense scene from all his movies.
In another recent interview, Tarantino opened up about how the box office performance of one of his films at the box office has taken a toll on his confidence.
Tarantino is currently promoting his book cinematic speculation, it’s part personal history, part film criticism, and part film reporting.
Last month, it was reported that Tarantino was preparing to announce his last film, which is supposed to be set in the 1970s, has a female lead and is called Film critic.
The director has repeatedly said that he plans to retire when he turns 60 (which takes place on March 27).
