Actor Vince Vaughn’s double whammy on libs: Banning guns is like banning forks from fat people

Hollywood actor Vince Vaughn has long been known to buck the liberal-lefty trend in the entertainment elite, but he took things a step further in the upcoming issue of GQ magazine when he came out foursquare for the Second Amendment.

“I support people having a gun in public full stop, not just in your home,” Vaughn told the magazine’s British edition for its July 2015 cover interview, promoting his work on HBO’s second series of the “True Detective” crime anthology.

“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.”

Vince Vaugh in 2010’s “The Cell.”

In an era when that “corrupt and abusive government” is backed by 99 percent of the so-called liberals in Hollywood (those counterculture revolutionaries who really worship the corrupting power of Washington), those are bracing words.

But they shouldn’t be surprising from a guy who backed Republican/libertarian/contrarian Ron Paul in 2008 and 2012, then switched to Mitt Romney after Romney sewed up the GOP nomination in 2012.

“It’s not about duck hunting, it’s about the ability of the individual,” Vaughn said. “It’s the same reason we have freedom of speech.”

Since the Hollywood liberals of the Obama Era don’t care much for freedom of speech either, that’s pretty bracing too.

Of course, the GQ writer had to ask about school shootings – because the gun laws of a nation of 320 million people should be determined by the lunatic actions of a handful of lunatics – but Vaughn was ready.

And the answer is classic.

“You think the politicians that run my country and your country don’t have guns in the schools their kids go to? They do. And we should be allowed the same rights.

“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.”

Banning guns is like banning forks?

Don’t give them any ideas.

Gun rights activists spread word of the interview fast.

But some predicted there’s going to be pushback.

A guy who backs Mitt Romney in Hollwood can probably handle the Hollywood enforcers, too.
