(In)Action Heroes.

Well, the new Bond has wasted no time piling on the anti-gun bandwagon.  Must be a union rule for Brit actors, everybody is doing it.
Daniel Craig will have a problem playing the new James Bond - because he hates guns.

The actor will wield 007's famous Walther PPK in the movie Casino Royale.

But he revealed in OK! magazine: "I hate handguns. Handguns are used to shoot people and as long as they are around, people will shoot each other.

"That's a simple fact. I've seen a bullet wound and it was a mess. It was on a shoot and it scared me. Bullets have a nasty habit of finding their target and that's what's scary about them."
But the hypocrite will be happy to take acres of money to use one on-screen.  Mr. Craig joins up to the blame-the-bullet crowd, becoming just another idiot who ascribes volition and malice to inanimate objects.  Propaganda types must be very happy to get this little boost.  I hope they had to pay him.
