Matthew McConaughey Supports Gun Control at Austin #MarchForOurLives
This one cuts me deep. Matthew McConaughey was someone I always thought was alright, alright, alright. Please allow me the indulgence. I'm really struggling with this one.
Because the actor spoke at a #MarchForOurLives rally in Austin. Taylor Swift at least only half-assed support via an Instagram post. Then went back to planning her fabulous summer tour. But McConaughey actually showed up. Most likely even had his publicist send out to tabloids to make sure he was there.
I’m not here to talk about politics.
SPOILER: Here's where celebrities totally talk about politics.
But I want to be clear that today’s march is not about taking away the rights of the law-abiding American citizens to buy own and bear arms. Let’s be clear about that.
But I want to be clear that it totally was. Full stop. Leftists aren't hiding it at all (see #MarchForOurLives Speaker Admits True Gun Control Plans and Top 5 Idiotic Moments From 'March for Our Lives' Gun Control Rally).
And those of us who are legal and responsible American citizen gun owners, it’s time to join hands. It’s time to get into the arena it’s time to step up to the line and help heal our country. One, let’s ban the assault weapons for civilians. This is a no-brainer. And to my friends out there that are responsible owners of these recreational assault weapons that they use for recreation, please let’s just take one for the team here and set it down.
Absolutely not. Hard pass. Suck it.
I can't anymore. If you can, click over to People.com and have at it.
Maybe he was stoned. Saw a group of college students and figured one of them was holding. Then when he wound up on stage tried to play it cool. Thought he was filming a movie. I hope.
Or, like all sane people who cozy up to Hollywood types, he caught a case of the stupids. Decided to go all in with every anti-gun moron sitting comfortably behind secured walls with armed guards.
Sorry kids. That's all I got right now.
