Brad Pitt Owned a Gun Since Age Six, Doesn't Feel Safe Without One in Home

Brad Pitt–star of Fury, World War Z, and Fight Club–says he has owned a gun since he was six years old and does not feel safe without one in the house.

According Fox News, Pitt told Radio Times “there’s a rite of passage where [he] grew up of inheriting your ancestors’ weapons.” Subsequently, his brother inherited their father’s weapons, while Pitt says of himself, “I got my grandfather’s shotgun when I was in kindergarten,” which was age six. 

He said his father “instilled [in him] a profound and deep respect for the weapon.”

Two years later, at age eight, Pitt fired his first handgun. He said he does not “feel that his family is safe unless there is a gun in the home.”

In September 2012, Outdoor Life reported that Pitt gave Angelina Jolie a “$400,000 shooting range as wedding gift.”
