Tarantino: 'Everyone has the right to own a gun'

Director Quentin Tarantino arrives at the red carpet during the closing ceremony at the 67th Venice Film Festival September 11, 2010.

US film director Quentin Tarantino admitted he was against the use of automatic weapons, but defended a citizen’s right to own a gun, in an interview published in German newspaper Frankfurter Rundschau.

“Initially I think that everyone has the right to own a gun. I myself have one because I live alone in a large house and want to be able to defend myself,” the 49-year-old director said.

“There are gun fans, hunters and rifle collectors. All of that is ok. However, what’s dangerous, imprudent and unjustifiable are automatic weapons designated toward military use,” he said.

The film director commented on the issue amid the grand debate over gun use and possession in the United States, following the massacre at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut in December.

The Oscar-winning director (for “Pulp Fiction”) is currently on tour with his latest film "Django Unchained", which premiered recently in Germany.
