Yesterday, Para USA announced on their Facebook page that they would no longer provide firearms in films starring Liam Neeson. Neeson recently made some heinous statements regarding American gun ownership. The actor made $20,000,000 filming his last firearms heavy film “Taken 3” before making his profanity laced screed about firearms in the USA.
Here is the statement from PARA:
“PARA USA regrets its decision to provide firearms for use in the film “Taken 3.” While the film itself is entertaining, comments made by its Irish-born star during press junkets reflect a cultural and factual ignorance that undermines support of the Second Amendment and American liberties. 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. Further, we encourage our partners and friends in the firearms industry to do the same.”
