In an upcoming British GQ interview, actor Vince Vaughn opened up about his support for gun rights and opposition to gun control.

“I support people having a gun in public, full stop, not just in your home,” Vaughn said. “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.”

“All these gun shootings that have gone down in America since 1950, only one or maybe two have happened in non-gun-free zones,” he continued. “Take mass shootings. They’ve only happened in places that don’t allow guns.” (RELATED: Matthew McConaughey Is A Big Fan Of The Redskins Name)


When pressed on whether guns should be allowed in schools, Vaughn said they should. “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,” he concluded.
