Vince Vaughn is not usually known for his pronouncements on public issues, although his frame suggests he would have some serious things to say about donuts. Now, however, the True Detective actor has come out in favor of gun-ownership. Really in favor. "I support people having a gun in public full stop, not just in your home," he tells the UK edition of GQ, a magazine hitherto not widely read in Texas. "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."
Vaughn states that owning a gun is "not about duck hunting" (Phil Robertson might disagree) but rather "the ability of the individual" (Phil Robertson would definitely agree). Vaughn also appears to believe that mass shootings only happen in 'non-gun-free zones" and that they only occur where there are innocent, non-gun-carrying people. True Detective, which features lots of guns, premieres on HBO on June 21st and if it's a critical darling, might do wonders for Vaughn's lackluster career. Based on Vaughn's opinions on gun-control, Fox News will probably give the show a ringing endorsement. (Note: The NRA hasn't had a good Hollywood celebrity spokesperson since they pried the gun from Charlton Heston's cold, dead hands in 2008.)
