Taken 3 gun makers criticize Liam Neeson

The firearms company that provided the guns for Liam Neeson's Hollywood movie Taken 3 has criticized the star for his comments about US gun laws.

PARA USA said it "regrets" working with Neeson after he said the proliferation of guns in the US was a "disgrace".

The company added that it would cut ties with the Taken franchise and urged other companies to do the same.

Neeson told Dubai's Gulf News last week, "I think the population is like, 320 million? There are over 300 million guns in America.”

"I think it's a disgrace."

Neeson made his comments in reply to a question about the Charlie Hebdo shootings in Paris earlier in the month.

The star, who took on the role of ex-CIA operative Bryan Mills in all three Taken films, said the gun problem was not connected to Hollywood's action movies.
