Actor Matthew McConaughey supports certain gun control measures and even spoke at the “March for Our Lives” in his hometown of Austin, Texas, despite McConaughey’s fear that the youth-led movement will be “hijacked” by extremists who wish to take people’s guns away.
Speaking at the CinemaCon theater-owners convention on Monday, McConaughey said gun violence is “an epidemic in our country” that he hopes to curtail without taking guns away from people.
“I’ve got a lot of friends who are gun owners. I’ve got a lot of friends who are NRA (National Rifle Association). I grew up hunting. We had responsible gun ownership, but I was taught the right way to respect that tool,” he said. “At the same time, their petition that they were speaking about is a very good one. And I also fear that their campaign — they have to watch that they don’t get hijacked. Meaning, a lot of the crowd was for no guns at all. That was not the march for life. March for Our Lives was for rightful, just, responsible gun ownership — but against assault rifles, against unlimited magazines and for following up on the regulations.” – READ MORE[give_form id=”79809″] [contentcards url=”https://www.dailywire.com/news/29873/matthew-mcconaughey-warns-march-our-lives-paul-bois” target=”_blank”]
