Vince Vaughn is money baby. Sorry, I had to. Amidst hollywood leftism, the guy just makes sense. In the recent GQ issue, Vaughn was asked if he supported the Second Amendment and American gun ownership. His answer?
Yes, yes, followed emphatically by more yes. Precisely zero punches pulled. His dead-on response:
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.
See what he did there? He didn’t shy away from what could have been considered a revolutionary idea—he went right for it. Why was the 2nd amendment really put in the Constitution? It was to protect us against big bad criminals in government. Boom. Straight for the throat.
Just to ice the cake for us, Vince Vaughn was asked whether he supported guns in school. His answer:
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.
Can’t say it any better than that. Seriously. If the Secret Service can use firearms to protect Obama (and his children), you’d think we lowly peasants might be able to use them, too. But remember kids, this is leftism 101: what applies to you does not apply to them.
Vince Vaughn is a breath of fresh air. In the era of word-police and micro-aggression, he stands tall as a man with the balls to have… well, to have even a slightly different opinion than everyone else in Hollywood.
That’s kind of sad when you think about it…
