PARA USA provided firearms for the new movie, Taken 3, but has decided it will no longer back Liam Neeson after he made some comments about gun control.
On Friday, The Blaze reported that the firearm company that provided the guns in Taken 3 regrets their decision and will never provide them for a movie Neeson is in again.
Earlier this week, Neeson made the statement that there are too many guns in America: "There's too many [expletive] guns out there...Especially in America. I think the population is like, 320 million? There's over 300 million guns. Privately owned, in America. I think it's a [expletive] disgrace. Every week now we're picking up a newspaper and seeing, 'Yet another few kids have been killed in schools.'"
Now, PARA USA is no longer supporting the actor or the movie. They took to Facebook yesterday to share their frustration with the comments Neeson made, and were even ballsy enough to tag him in the post.
"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."
Clearly, the producers of the show are going to have to find another actor or another firearms provider if they do decide to go through with a Taken 4.
