    I enjoyed his movies, did not care for him personally, hypocrite making a living in movies with gun violence

    RIP Sean, you provided us with lots of entertainment as you played with guns, then denied their use in real life, like so many other Hollywood phonies...

    His character in Last Crusade was good but the guy was a first class prick and full of himself. No tears here.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    He was English, for Christsake.  England has never, ever had a gun culture.  Very few gun fanciers/shooters in England.  Bloke on the Range, who is English, moved to Switzerland where gun ownership is a lot less restricted, although I don't know if that's the reason he moved.  Anyway, guns are a foreign concept to almost all Englishmen.

    I liked Sean Connery, but he's no different than any other Hollyweed asshole leftist!!!

    The history of strict gun control (handguns) only goes back to the 1980's after a string of mass shootings. The people born after that have had the idea of owning handguns bred out of them. This is a relatively recent phenomena. There was regulation before the 1980's but the strictest laws were enacted in that period. The below article pretty much outlines the entire history of weapons control since the 16th century, at the bottom of the article.

    Just a correction, he was Scottish. I also had no idea that he was 90 years of age.

    I have never been a Bond fan, but I liked him in " The Wind and the Lion " and "A Man Who Would Be King"...also liked him in "The Longest Day" and "A Bridge Too Far"

    I've always found all the Bond films silly, ever since watching the original when it came out. OTOH, once Connery shed the Bond sterotype...he was a damn good actor, possibly the equal of Duvall (that might be a bit of a stretch, though).

    But, he was very full of himself by all accounts I've read over the years, and very anti-gun, although he "made his living with them" in a Hollywood sort of way.

    OTOH, the previous iteration of Bond admitted he didn't know how to drive a stick

    Actors are....well....what they are. It was once considered a much less respected way to make a living than farming. We've lost sight of that.

    Don't forget plow-mules. They regarded them highly, too.

    Since this thread is taking about 007. What are the thoughts on the upcoming 007?  If you’re like me just found out 007 is now female. I guess the Bond Girls will now be Bond Guys. Damn that sounds worse once I wrote that.

    And yeah, it sounds pretty bad. Maybe it'll be as good as the new Ghostbusters movie.

    Nah.  There will undoubtedly still be Bond Girls.  Service to Queen and Country will likely require ability to seduce ANYBODY.
