BEVERLY HILLS, . — Sylvester Stallone says that despite his “Rambo” image and new shoot-em-up film “Bullet to the Head,” he’s in favor of new national gun-control legislation.

Stallone supported the 1994 “Brady bill” that included a now-expired ban on assault weapons, and hopes that ban can be reinstated.

“I know people get (upset) and go, ‘They’re going to take away the assault weapon.’ Who ... needs an assault weapon? Like really, unless you’re carrying out an assault. ... You can’t hunt with it. ... Who’s going to attack your house, a (expletive) army?”
