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

Filed under: PolitikVince VaughnGQSchoolControversy

no title

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?!

Raven-Symoné Doesn't Think Harriet Tubman Should Be On The $20 Bill Because She's Not Progressive Enough?!

no title

That's so Raven?!

Recently, a grassroots campaign called "Women On 20s" started a viral frenzy when they proposed that former president Andrew Jackson be taken off the $20 bill and replaced with African-American abolitionist Harriet Tubman — who during the 1800s used the Underground Railroad to rescue approximately seventy family and friends from slavery.

Well apparently Tubman's work just doesn't impress Raven-Symoné!

On Wednesday's episode of The View, the former child star revealed that she didn't like the idea of putting the historical legend on such currency!

She said:

"No offense to everyone that's going to be mad at me for saying this, I don't like that idea… I think we need to move a little bit more forward. Let me just preface that I understand the history, I get it, trust me, I was taught, I was in that culture… I would've chosen Rosa Parks."

As to why she would've chosen Parks over Harriet Tubman, the 29-year-old believes the former is more progressive and more in-line with our current political landscape:

Jessica Biel And Jake Gyllenhaal Star In New Trailer For David O Russell's 'Lost' Movie Accidental Love!

Did you know David O Russell filmed a movie in 2008 that was "lost" until now!

It's starring Jessica Biel and Jake Gyllenhaal and it looks sooooo funny!

The film is called Accidental Love, the original title was Nailed, which is way better in our opinion, because the movie is all about a woman who has a nail lodged in her brain!!

It's a political indie comedy where Jessica Biel, who doesn't have health insurance but has a nail in her brain, goes to a congressman for help.

That congressman is Jake Gyllenhaal!

The movie is coming out on February 20th so it'll be a great late late late Valentine's day date. LOLz!

Check out the trailer (above) for a look at this cute new movie!

Filed under: CanadialandPolitikBarack ObamaViral: News

us and cuba reinstate diplomatic relations barack obama

Holy moly this is HUGE news!

President Barack Obama announced to the world that the United States would be opening full diplomatic relations with Cuba!

Not only this, but the U.S. will be opening up an embassy in Havana for the first time in more than half-a-century!

In addition to these two things, Cuba has released an American contractor, Alan Gross, who has been held in a Cuban prison for five whole years AND both the United States AND Cuba released political prisoners, some which were held for up to 20 years, back to their own countries.

But, how did all of this come about?

President Obama Wants To Avoid 'Militarized' Police! White House To Provide Funding For 50,000 Police Body Cameras!

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikBarack Obama

no title

With racial tensions at an all time high, and Ferguson, Missouri slowly turning into a police state, President Barack Obama is here to save the day!

He's in a unique position for this situation: protestors need not only someone who could sympathize with them but also someone with power, someone who can enact real change.

And that's exactly what Obama is doing.

He wants to make sure the police aren't "militarized," but he also wants to make sure they have the military-style hardware needed to keep their officers safe when things get out of hand.

So he's come up with a plan…
