Jon Bernthal, the man who plays the anti-hero on The Punisher, had been asked about his thoughts on Frank Castle’s inherent place within gun control debates.
“Should there be a way that a guy with mental issues like the asshole in Texas can’t get guns? Absolutely,” Bernthal replied.
“We have to have a dialogue, and that’s not happening. I feel honored to play a guy who people putting their life on the line identify with,” the actor said.
He ensured that his stance on the alt-right members showing off Punisher’s skull could not be misconstrued, succinctly stating, “F**k them.”
