The firearm manufacturer that produced the guns for the movie Taken 3 has said it regrets its work after the film’s star, Liam Neeson, called the number of guns in America “a fucking disgrace” earlier this week.
On Monday, the Batman Begins actor made a series of disparaging remarks towards gun ownership in America when asked about the Paris terror attacks targeting the satirical paper Charlie Hebdo.
“There are too many ******* guns out there, especially in America,” Neeson said. “I think the population is, like, 320 million? There are over 300 million guns. Privately owned, in America. I think it’s a fucking disgrace. Every week now we’re picking up a newspaper and seeing, ‘Yet another few kids have been killed in schools.’”
On Thursday, American-owned gun company PARA USA issued a Facebook post announcing it “regrets its decision to provide firearms for use in the film,” asserting that the actor’s statements undermined “support of the Second Amendment and American liberties.”
