Vince Vaughn: Banning Guns In Schools Is Like ‘Banning Forks’ To Prevent Obesity

Season 2 “True Detective” star Vince Vaughn shared a few truths of his own with GQ in its July issue, but what he had to say is proving pretty controversial.

Specifically, what he said about guns and gun ownership. Vaughn asserted the right to not just own a gun, but to carry it in public.

“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,” he said in an interview with the UK edition of the magazine. “It’s not about duck hunting; it’s about the ability of the individual.”

His comments are making headlines at a particularly timely period. Tuesday, June 2, is the first-ever Gun Violence Awareness Day.
