The vast majority of celebrities are Democrats, but that does not mean that there aren’t Conservative celebrities as well. Jon Voight is among the most accomplished. Voight, a supporter of Donald Trump, has been working in television and film since the 1960’s.
And while the actor did once call Donald Trump the greatest President since Abraham Lincoln, he does not subscribe to all Republican talking points. This weekend, Voight called for mental testing in order for people to own guns.
In a video posted to Facebook, the actor argued, “It’s not about Left, Right, guns, no guns. This is about brains that are dysfunctioning. This is mental,” he said. “This is not about healthy human beings serving the country with arms to bear or even the right of this Constitution for bearing arms.”

Voight continued, “We must identify every individual for their credentials, for their mental capacity to bear arms. There should be proper qualifications for gun ownership and proper testing. One should only own a gun if they’re qualified and schooled.”
