Elizabeth Banks, American actress

It would be wise to ban assault weapons, high-capacity magazines and silencers. None of which is excessive.

Charlton Heston, Actor and political activist

You could say that the paparazzi and the tabloids are sort of the 'assault weapons' of the First Amendment. They're ugly, a lot of people don't like them, but they're protected by the First Amendment - just as 'assault weapons' are protected by the Second Amendment.

Sylvester Stallone,

I know people get upset and go, 'They're going to take away the assault weapon'. But who needs an assault weapon? Like, really, unless you're carrying out an assault.

David Mamet, Playwright

The so-called assault weapons ban is a hoax. It is a political appeal to the ignorant. The guns it supposedly banned have been illegal for 78 years. Did the ban make them 'more' illegal? The ban addresses only the appearance of weapons, not their operation.

Josh Fox,

disagrees Fracking
There are regulations all over the spectrum that have to be done to the existing situation right now. But the only policy that makes sense is a nationwide moratorium: no new fracking, no new fracked wells.

Mark Ruffalo,

disagrees Fracking
We're clearly coming to the end of the fossil fuel era. We have the technology to shift to renewable energy, we have the will of the people. The only thing that's keeping us back is the fossil fuel industry's hold on our political system. That's what we need to change.

Willie Nelson,

disagrees Fracking
It's bad for the land, bad for the farmers, bad for the soil. It's just all around a bad idea.

Mark Ruffalo,

Taking away Net Neutrality is the Authoritarian dream. Consolidating information into the hands of a few controlled by a few. Dangerous territory.

Julian Fellowes, English actor, novelist, film director and screenwriter, Conservative member of the House of Lords

agrees Brexit
I believe we should be out. It’s about philosophy, it’s about democracy, it’s about democracy versus autocracy … the European Union can’t be accountable because the elected MEPs have no real control over the Commission.
