To that, Nick Gillespie at Reason.com pointed out that Curtis's stand on the interpretation of just how infringed the Second Amendment can be and still be supported largely mirrors 1980s Republicans. And have absolutely no problem with people owning firearms if they have been trained, licensed, a background check has been conducted, a pause button has been pushed to give time for that process to take place. "And then to shoot it was just incredibly powerful, and that, to me, was sort of the defining moment, because what they were saying is that. we are all in this together, and if we're in it together, we have a chance to make a difference and to change the narrative of the perpetrators, but you can't do it alone".

While Curtis appeared in a number of films throughout the franchise, many wondered if she'd ever return to Halloween when it was announced Blumhouse was resurrecting the series. "It's a ten-second business conversation, and the answer is, 'you can't, '" he said.

On Wednesday, Fox News generated a lot of unintended online hilarity with an article that tried to manufacture a political statement out of Jamie Lee Curtis' latest acting job. "I was very clear with the filmmakers that she used the weapons [that] were intended for self-defense for her and her family". Curtis dismissed the article as "silly", and talked about her beliefs on the subject. "And I think there were myriad types of firearms that could have been used in the movie". Curtis reportedly made sure automatic weapons were not part of Strode's strategy. "I have to be responsible for my own personal choices in my own personal life". "I don't know, but her gun-control suggestions are kind of in line with Ronald Reagan's (he supported waiting periods and a ban on assault weapons too)", said Gillespie.

For Jamie Lee Curtis, however, finding her way back to the role of Laurie in the upcoming Halloween (which follows the storyline of the 1978 original while ignoring its subsequent sequels) involved a career path that took her out of the realm of horror films for a time.
