Gun-grabbers Stallone, Arnold flop at box office
Will 2nd-Amendment-defender Willis top them next week?
Is there a correlation between Sylvester Stallone’s and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s recent box office flops and their decision to label the Second Amendment “expendable?”

In contrast to Stallone and Schwarzenegger, Willis, starring in “It’s a Good Day to Die Hard,” has come out in defense of the right to bear arms as Democrats in Washington propose unprecedented restrictions on guns.
Stallone, Schwarzenegger and Willis, three of the biggest Hollywood stars of all-time, owe much of their box office success to action characters who brandish firearms.
