'Commando' famed actor Arnold Schwarzenegger has waded into the movie violence debate a month after the Connecticut massacre, which has been linked to cinema shoot-outs.
The former California Governor is promoting his new all-action film 'The Last Stand' and insisted people "know the difference" between movie and real-life violence, reported USA Today.
The 65-year old actor, known for his action sequences, said, "Sane people know the difference... We have to separate the two. What's most important is that we, as a society, do a better job to prevent these sort of things. You cannot totally eliminate them. There will always be some crazy guy out there shooting. There are mentally ill people. The question is, what can we do?"
"I wouldn't just go pointing at the NRA (National Rifle Association) that it's their fault. Or video games. Or gun manufacturers. The reality is, it's a very complex issue... It's mental illness," he added.
Schwarzenegger admitted though that he was left "stunned" when a gunman opened fire and killed 20 children at the Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 12.
