US gun control: Sylvester Stallone joins debate

Actor Sylvester Stallone has joined the US debate on gun violence, following the Aurora and Newtown mass shootings.

Speaking during the promotion of his latest film Bullet to the Head, the 66-year-old emphasised prevention, saying America had "dropped the ball" on mental health issues.

However, he has also said he supports tighter gun legislation, including a ban on assault weapons.

The actor was speaking during the promotion of his latest film Bullet to the Head, where he admitted he thought his career was "over" before the sixth instalment of his Rocky series, Rocky Balboa, in 2006.
