Vince Vaughn Weighs In On Gun Control With THIS Controversial Comparison!

| Filed under: PolitikVince VaughnGQSchoolControversy

Vince Vaughn has never been one to hold his tongue, and his recent statements are bound to ruffle a few feathers.

In the July issue of British GQ, the 45-year-old dishes with the magazine about the second season of True Detective, but the conversation quickly turns political.

From saying Edward Snowden is a hero to calling America's crusade against drugs 'ridiculous', the actor doesn't hold back with his opinions.

However, his views on gun control will certainly shock many readers.

On whether individuals should have the right to bare arms, the Couples Retreat star said:

"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."

He later goes on to theorize that the mass shootings that have happened in recent years — notably 2012's Sandy Hook massacre that left 20 children and six staffers dead — are due to the country's ban on weapons.

"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***ing schools because they know there are no guns there. They are monsters killing six-year-olds."

So does this mean that the Minnesota native believes guns should be allowed in schools?

It turns out… yes.

"Of course… 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."

Do you agree with Vince's controversial statements regarding gun control?!

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again…

So says Rick Perry, the former governor of Texas and 2012 presidential campaign failure, on the Mike Gallagher Show Saturday.

Perry told the show's host that he's ready to "stand on that stage in the first debate" amongst the 2016 Republican field, which is in direct opposition to how he's failed to stand up for equality throughout his career:

North Carolina Legislature Passes A Bill That Allows Denial Of Same-Sex Marriages Based On Religious Beliefs

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersPolitik

North Carolina has passed a very disturbing bill that can affect same-sex marriage in the state.

Talk about taking taking two steps forward and 500 steps back.

North Carolina legislature has just passed a bill that allows officials to deny same-sex couples a marriage ceremony or even a marriage license if it interferes with their religious beliefs.

The bill now lands on Governor Pat McCrory's desk, where he will have 10 days to decide whether to veto it or pass it. If he does not come to a decision by then the bill will become law.

This would essentially allow court officials to opt out of performing a marriage ceremony for religious reasons.

This bill has been floating around ever since same-sex marriage was legalized in the state last October, but Governor McCrory has shot down it down in the past.

It seems that some conservatives are convinced that this is some sort of compromise and that they're REALLY protecting the officials who don't want to 'forced' to challenge their own beliefs.

It's unclear if the Governor is currently leaning in one direction or the other, but let's just say we hope he comes to his senses and shoots this thing down AGAIN!
