Vince Vaughn: “Banning Guns Is Like Banning Forks”

posted on June 2, 2015

In this month’s cover story of GQ magazine (British edition), American actor Vince Vaughn has this to say on the Second Amendment:

“I support people having a gun in public full stop, not just in your home. 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. It’s well known that the greatest defense against an intruder is the sound of a gun hammer being pulled back.”

Vaughn also stated: “Banning guns is like banning forks in an attempt to stop making people fat.”

Compared to the hypocritical anti-gun rants of fellow actor Liam Neeson, Vaughn’s courage to speak up for firearm freedom is encouraging. Gun owners will likely remember both at the box office.
