During a press conference in Australia over the Fourth of July weekend, “Jason Bourne” star Matt Damon advocated massive gun confiscation in the United States, the Washington Times reported.

“You guys did it here in one fell swoop [in 1996] and I wish that could happen in my country, but it’s such a personal issue for people that we cannot talk about it sensibly,” he said while promoting his latest movie.

“People get so emotional that even when you make a suggestion about not selling AK47s to people on terror watch lists, that’s a non-starter. I don’t know what needs to happen,” he added.

“Obviously mass shootings aren’t going to do it. There have been so many of them at this point. Sandy Hook, when those children were murdered, if that didn’t do it, you know, I just don’t know. Maybe we just need to evolve further before we can have that conversation, I don’t know,” Damon said.

He went on to praise the Australian gun control regime, apparently unaware that there is no Second Amendment down under.

“It’s wonderful what Australia did because you guys haven’t had a mass shooting since you went, ‘No, we’re going to be sensible about this.’ And nobody’s rights have been infringed, you guys are fine.”

“I wish we could be sensible like that but I don’t think that’s going to happen in my lifetime.”

Let’s hope we never see gun confiscation in his lifetime…
