Both in your acting career and, I guess in your work as a police officer you have to deal with lots of guns.

What attracts you in guns is it engineering, is it the sense of power or something else maybe.
[Steven Frederic Seagal (April 10, 1952)]
I mean I believe in (you know) the sport, the Olympics, shooting in Olympics long range shooting all these things. But I also believed in every country has the right to defend their own country. Every man has the right to defend his own wife, children and home. And I also believe that right should triumph over evil. And so, I don’t have anything against guns, because guns in and of themselves, don’t kill people. People kill people. So gun is just like a plant or a tool, (you know) you can either do good with it which is to protect and nurture humanity, mankind or destroy. I am here to nurture and protect people.

So I wonder where do you stand on the issue of gun control in the United States?

Well, first of all, I believe in the second amendment and the constitution, more than anything in the world, and I think that Adolf Hitler, for example, when he wanted to annihilate the people of Germany the first thing he did was take away their guns. And the rights to bear arms wasn’t just to protect the people from foreign invaders, it was to protect them against evil governments and anyone that would violate their inherent rights as a human being. So I believe in the second amendment, and I believe, that I hate to say this, a lot of these mass murders and all this funny stuff that’s going on, I believe a lot of this is engineered.
And yet in the aftermath of the, I think it was Newtown shooting you’re engaged in a Connecticut program I think to teach children in self defense. Do you think those skills would be helpful if they were faced with somebody who was armed to the teeth?
Well first of all, I wasn’t teaching children to defend themselves I was teaching what’s called the Posse which are sworn officers to come in and defend schools. And so these are people that have had training with fire alarms, they have had police training they’re just not on my level, but they are in a sworn.
But you still saw that engagement was important than that there is something has to be done about the gun situation within schools and universities.
The most precious gift we have from God is our children. Why can’t we spend money and time to protect our schools and our children? They have armed guards at every bank, at every jewelry store, if you go around Shanzelize, you go around France, and Monaco, and Beverly Hills, there is all these armed guards everywhere, protecting money and jewelry. Why can’t we protect our children?”
I don’t know that’s a good question. I have to ask you this. Do you think Hollywood and in particular action movies are partially responsible for clarification of gun violence now?
know, I think that, the more important thing we need to look at here is mental health. Because there are mentally insane people in every country and god knows we have our share in America. And I think this is the most important thing to learn there. Look at I think statistically it sort of proven that, in Japan for example where they have the most violent movies on earth. They have almost zero crime, what is that tell you? It’s not really the movies is as much as it’s mental health issues and how these people can get help. And it is also parenting. (You know) If you have parents who love the children, spend time with their children, teach their children right from wrong and they have real parenting you won’t see any of this.
And yet, if you look at the pure data, statistics of violence in the United States and the access that kids have to guns. The amount of time they spent with their parents. It doesn’t look pretty well.
