Gossip Girl‘s Chace Crawford may not have been in the spotlight much lately, but he’s clearly been in the gym. The 34-year-old actor was equipped with some heavy weaponry as he flaunted his guns in a sleeveless vest.

We’re all for gun control, as long as it doesn’t include those firearms (‘fire’ arms, geddit?)

On the same day (July 17th) that Warner Media announced that Gossip Girl would be getting a series reboot, Crawford was papped out shopping. Perhaps he was treating himself, seen as it’s his birthday today (July 18th).

Busy times for Crawford, although sadly we probably won’t be seeing him in any reboot as it’s set 8 years in the future… Although to be fair, the show ended seven years ago, so they could easily do a believable flash-forward, however, creators are said to have opted for more of a ‘remake’ style, which explores how the evolution of social media would impact Gossip Girl‘s concept.
