Vince Vaughn Wants More Guns in Schools

Vince Vaughn argues for more guns in schools.

Vince Vaughn covers the next issue of GQ to promote his role in HBO's True Detective. The magazine released some excerpts, none of which give details about the show. Vince Vaughn discusses his collection of "assembly-line comedies" and, at first, blames no one but himself. He points out that script changes are responsible for his streak of box-office bombs. Vaughn says he signs onto films, arrives on set, and finds "all the juice and the life" sucked out of a feature film. This makes him feel like a "hired gun".

“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… Take mass shootings. They’ve only happened in places that don’t allow guns. These people are sick in the head and are going to kill innocent people. They are looking to slaughter defenceless human beings. They do not want confrontation. 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*cking schools because they know there are no guns there. They are monsters killing six-year-olds.”
Does Vince Vaughn believe guns should be allowed in schools? "Of course." Vince says politicians already send their kids to well-armed schools, so all other Americans should do the same. Vince Vaughn ends the topic of conversation with this analogy: “Banning guns is like banning forks in an attempt to stop making people fat…it won’t rid the world of criminality.” Maybe Vince Vaughn is a "method" actor and if he's not playing or starring in a romantic comedy he's not as charming? Or, maybe he is sick of seeing teachers without a desert eagle next to their grade books. What do you think? Discuss this story with fellow Project Casting fans on Facebook.
