Yes itâ€™s true that celebrities and their families are attractive targets for kidnappers, extortionists, terrorists and criminal assailants.
And it is also true that awareness, appreciation, and the application of good security practices at home, at work, and while traveling, can greatly reduce the odds of a successful attack on your family and yourself!
And I understand that some celebrities do not want to surround themselves with security. But packing your own “heat” might bring you more trouble than it’s worth.
Washington, Oct 31: While other Hollywood A-list celebs hire bodyguards for their protection, it seems Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore prefer to guard themselves with guns instead of opting for expensive services of trained security personnel.
The Hollywood couple admit they keep guns in their Idaho home to protect themselves and the actress’ three daughters.
While Kutcher, 28, owns a Springfield handgun, his actress wife is a trained Glock – a deadly semi-automatic gun – user.
The guns, locked away at the couple’s home in Hailey, Idaho, are kept within easy reach in case intruders should appear.
However, Kutcher admits to a more unusual reason for owning the guns, as he says he uses them to keep unwanted suitors away from his three stepdaughters.
“There was this guy (fifteen-year-old step-daughter) Scout was dating and I’d carry the gun around at all times, just to give him a subtle hint,” Contact music quoted the protective step-dad, as saying.
