Actor Vince Vaughn speaks up on behalf of all Gun Rights activists in America in a recently released GQ interview, stating that guns should be allowed in American schools, and that a ban would not stop mass shootings.
The 45 year-old Vaughn told reporters of GQ magazine that he supported the right to own and carry a firearm in public.
Even though there have been a series of school shootings in America, when asked whether they should be allowed in schools he replied; “Of course. You think the politicians that run my country and your country don’t have guns in the schools their kids go to? They do.
“And we should be allowed the same rights. Banning guns is like banning forks in an attempt to stop making people fat. Taking away guns, taking away drugs, the booze, it won’t rid the world of criminality.”
Vaughn added; “I support people having a gun in public full stop, not just in your home. We don’t have the right to bear arms because of burglars.
“We have the right to bear arms to resist the supreme power of a corrupt and abusive government. It’s not about duck hunting, it’s about the ability of the individual.
“It’s the same reason we have freedom of speech. It’s well-known that the greatest defence against an intruder is the sound of a gun hammer being pulled back.”
He continues his thoughts with; “All these gun shootings that have gone down in America since 1950, only one or maybe two have happened in non-gun-free zones. Take mass shootings. They’ve only happened in places that don’t allow guns. These people are sick in the head and are going to kill innocent people.
“They are looking to slaughter defenceless human beings … In all of our schools it is illegal to have guns on campus, so again and again these guys go and shoot up these … schools because they know there are no guns there. They are monsters killing six-year-olds.”
I believe it’s time we start recognizing these Hollywood Actors who are willing to stand up to the typical “Hollywood liberalist paradigm”, by declaring their personal position on our rights, without thought as to what that might do to their careers. When you earn your paycheck off the backs of “hardworking” Americans, it’s time to realize that no matter what side your bread is buttered on, truth is the truth and it shall set you free.
