Actor Cole Hauser Not Worried If Pro-Gun Stance Costs Him Roles in Hollywood

At least there are some in Hollywood who still have some guts. People who don’t care about the opinions of others for the sake of preserving freedoms that everyone should be allowed to enjoy make for an easier life. They don’t try to shut down others’ free speech, it just doesn’t bother them when people don’t approve of theirs.

Actor Cole Hauser, who you may know from past films such as “Dazed & Confused,” "2 Fast 2 Furious,” and more recently for his role as “Rip Wheeler” in the Paramount Network series “Yellowstone,” recently did an interview with Guns & Ammo in which he talks about his personal pro-Second Amendment stance.

You can check out the full interview here. But, here’s Hauser’s take on being pro-gun while being a Hollywood actor:

[Guns & Ammo interviewer Mike] Schoby: Do you keep your hunting and gun ownership quiet in public?

Hauser: Nope. I am very open about hunting and gun ownership, even in Hollywood. Listen, my right as an American is to own guns. Responsibility is a big deal to me. Have we as a community forgotten a little bit about responsibility? Possibly. But in my household, no. All of my children know how to shoot and handle firearms safely. They will always know how to shoot, and they will be able to protect themselves, in every way they can. But gun ownership really all boils down to personal responsibility.

Schoby: Do you think talking guns can be detrimental to your career in Hollywood?

Hauser: Don’t care. [Laughs.] But seriously, I really don’t care. I think being an American and exercising our rights far outweighs my personal achievements and career goals.

Schoby: That is a refreshing answer when so many high-­profile people shy away from the topic of guns and hunting.

Hauser: I have always felt, go and be who you want to be as an American and if you want to own firearms or go hunting, do it. Wherever it is, enjoy it. It is your right.

Hauser’s answers certainly are refreshing considering the amount of uninformed tripe we typically get from Hollywood, a segment of the population that more often than not veers far-left.

There should come a time in every person’s life, no matter who they are, where they feel that everyone should just go about living their lives as they see fit as long as they don’t push their lifestyle on others.

When Hauser said that “exercising our rights far outweighs my personal achievements and career goals,” that’s a level of freedom that most people will never know but should always strive to in one way or another.

In the end, it’s just like Hauser said — it’s all about “responsibility.”
