Julianne Moore Calls for Gun Registry, Limit on Number of Guns Americans Can Own
Actress Julianne Moore called for the implementation of a gun registry and for limitations to be placed on the number of guns Americans can own during an appearance Thursday on ABC’s The View.
Host Whoopi Goldberg introduced Moore by talking about the actress’s affiliation with Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety. Goldberg stressed the word “safety” and said, “It’s not about gun control, it’s about safety.”
Moore took her cue, smiled and said, “Yes, it’s about safety.” She continued:
People like to talk about, ‘It’s a Second Amendment issue,’ [but] it’s a safety issue. A gun is a machine. For instance, when cars were introduced we had any number of fatalities because we didn’t have safety regulations. We didn’t have seat belts and speed limits and air bags. So we’re asking for those same kinds of things with guns. Registration, licensing, background checks. I also think, personally, limitations on the amount of firearms you can own.
