Matt Damon calls for IMMEDIATE gun ban in the US while promoting new Jason Bourne film – after killing at least 10 people in his role as the weapons-toting trained assassin

Matt Damon will return to the big screen as trained assassin Jason Bourne later this month, and while promoting the new film in Australia over the weekend called for a ban on guns in the United States.

In an interview with a reporter from the Sydney Morning Herald, Damon said: ‘You guys did it here in one fell swoop and I wish that could happen in my country, but it’s such a personal issue for people that we cannot talk about it sensibly. We just can’t.’

Damon made these comments at the red carpet premiere of the new Bourne movie, a film series in which he has killed at least 10 people with a firearm.
