Hollywood might be a liberal town, but there are plenty of celebrities who own guns — and they're not afraid to use them.
An E! Online report quotes gun owner Angelina Jolie talking about her willingness to protect her family: "If anybody comes into my home and tries to hurt my kids, I've no problem shooting them."
She isn't alone. Whoopi Goldberg of "The View" and James Earl Jones are both NRA members. Even Donald Trump — who spoke exclusively to The Times in November on the issue — and "The Avengers" star Jeremy Renner admit to owning firearms.
"I own guns and I don't think guns kill people, I think people kill people," Mr. Renner said recently.
Jennifer Lopez and Robert DeNiro are among a group of stars whose official gun-owning status is unknown, but have applied for a license to carry one, E! reports.
