Mel Gibson sleeps with a gun next to his bed - just in case he's attacked in his sleep.
The Mad Max star insists celebrities can never be over confident when it comes to home security - because there are so many crazy people out to get them.
He tells U.S. magazine the Globe, "In this day and age, you've got to be tooled up... If they (attackers) walk in, I'm not going to let them whip me.
"It is a bad way to live, but that's what you've gotta do."
Now that's an interesting remark, which I don't think I've heard before from gun owners who admit to sleeping with their weapons. Mel said, "It's a bad way to live."
Poor gun owners who believe responsible living demands such sacrifices. It must be a terrible burden to bear.
