Gun ownership and gun regulation is a very popular topic in the United States, especially with gun violence being in the news everyday. As the debate on guns rages on, let us take a look at 10 celebrities who you probably did not know are gun owners:

Chris Pratt

A favorite with conservatives, Chris Pratt has made it clear that he is pro-guns. He revealed that he owns 30 to 40 guns that he keeps stashed in his Washington home, since many of the guns he owns aren't legal in California. Although he is pro-guns, Chris Pratt thinks that there should be background checks before someone purchases a gun, because he fears that a gun could fall into the hands of someone who is mentally ill.

Angelina Jolie

In 2008, humanitarian queen Angelia Jolie revealed that she is a gun owner and she knows how to use guns. The owner of a $400K gun range that her husband Brad Pitt built for her, Angelina said that she owns a gun in order to protect her children from home intruders.
