I usually don’t put much stock in what Hollywood Actors say. Mainly their insipid illogical liberal bleeding heart bias comes through with such a shockingly high level of hypocrisy that it’s not worth wasting my breath talking about.
That is why, when I hear the fresh perspective of a rational thinking Hollywood Actor I am pleasantly surprised.
In this case the clarity that I speak of comes from Vince Vaughn. An actor, by the way that I have been a fan of since Swingers.
Vaughn has recently come out in an interview stating the following:
“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 defense against an intruder is the sound of a gun hammer being pulled back.”
It’s like Vince Vaughn has been reading Bulletsfirst.net.
Vaughn didn’t stop there. Unlike most Hollywood types who blather on about a position that they’ve heard about and know a few buzzwords to toss out, Vaughn actually has a firm grasp on why he believes what he believes and tells British GQ about it:
“Take mass shootings. They’ve only happened in places that don’t allow guns. In all of our schools it is illegal to have guns on campus, so again and again these guys go and shoot up these f***ing schools because they know there are no guns there.”
He even throws in an amusing metaphor I’ve always liked to lob at rabid gun hating hypocrites like Rosie O’Donnell:
“I support people having a gun in public full stop, not just in your home. Banning guns is like banning forks in an attempt to stop making people fat.”
Now, as we all know, liberals don’t hate anything more than someone speaking their mind when it goes against the liberal dogma. Hopefully, Vince Vaughn is a big enough star that the haters in Hollywood won’t be able to retaliate against him for speaking his common sense viewpoint.
This isn’t to say that Vaughn stands alone in his belief in the 2nd Amendment. In a previous article I listed a number of Hollywood stars who are pro gun.

As for me, I can’t wait to see Vince Vaughn’s next movie.
