    Smithsonian Talks Guns in Old West as 50th Anniversary of Leone Classic Looms

    An interesting historic discussion of guns and gun control in the Old West published Monday by Smithsonian.com has some remarkable, albeit unintentional, revelations that apparently are aimed at shattering some myths, and it appears as the 50th anniversary of a masterpiece film about that period is looming.

    "Neeson opposes the unrestricted right to own firearms in the United States and has made calls for gun control. In January 2015, he repeated his views, calling US gun laws a "disgrace" in an interview with Emirati newspaper Gulf News when replying to a question about the Charlie Hebdo shootings in Paris earlier that month. In response, U.S gun manufacturer Para USA, which provided the weapons used by Neeson in the Taken film series, expressed regret at working with him, saying: "We will no longer provide firearms for use in films starring Liam Neeson and ask that our friends and partners in Hollywood refrain from associating our brand and products with his projects."

    Should not be allowed to use guns to make his living

    Well, that's Neeson. He ain't the subject of the OP. Nor are his movies. ;)

    Thanks for sharing Dave. Fascinating read. I love the old spaghetti westerns, but I bought into the "myth" of the wild west as well.
