(Newser) – Some celebrities like packing heat—and not just in the movies. Fox News rounds up 14 of them. A sampling:

  • Tom Selleck: He's a member of the NRA.
  • Dax Shepard: After the Sandy Hook shootings, he tweeted, "I love guns. I have several, but I would gladly get rid of them if it would help prevent anything like this from happening again."
  • Clint Eastwood: He once said, "I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it."

  • Howard Stern: He has a few guns but says he's not a "gun enthusiast." Even so, "I believe that people who particularly live on The Island (Long Island) in a home should have a gun to protect it," he once explained.
  • Eric Clapton: He's a gun collector, and has said, "I like a gun to look like a working tool but it's a magnificent piece of art as well."
  • Joe Perry: The Aerosmith guitarist says he's "always been fascinated with guns."
  • Sherri Shepherd: The View host said she planned to get a gun after her burglar alarm went off one night.
