Fabio: “Don’t You Ever Give Up Your Guns”

Fabio has long been known for his “guns,” but until recently that statement had everything to do with the golden-haired actor and model’s physique, and nothing whatsoever do with the Second Amendment.

But after his L.A. home was burglarized—and several of his friends were mugged or robbed—Italian-born Fabio decided to become a gun owner. In an interview with Lifezette, he shared the insights gained from being the target of violent crime in the ever-more-restrictive gun control mecca of California. Fabio explained that while criminals “are always going to have every single weapon available to them,” lawmakers “don’t really have to care” about the dangers faced by average law-abiding citizens. “They’re protected. They have security,” he said.

As for America’s gun owners, he admonished them to work to avoid the fate of his homeland: “Don’t you ever give up your guns. If people lose that right, forget about it. Politicians—they will take everything away from you. And then what are you going to do, protest with a rock? Because that’s what they do in Europe.”
