You can count most Hollywood celebrities as liberals. Uvalde, Texas native Matthew McConaughey has always toed the line between the Hollywood leftists and staying true to his conservative Texas roots.
On Tuesday the actor gave an emotional speech remembering the Uvalde, Texas, school shooting victims and calling for change at the White House.
“You could feel the shock in the town. You could feel the pain, the denial, the disillusion, anger, blame, sadness, loss of lives, dreams halted,” McConaughey said.
“Enough with the counterpunching. Enough of the invalidation of the other side. Let’s come to the common table that represents the American people. Find a middle ground, a place where most of us Americans live anyway, especially on this issue, cuz I promise you, America – we are not as divided as we are being told we are,” McConaughey said.
“We need to invest in mental health care,” McConaughey said. “We need safer schools. We need to restrain sensationalized media coverage. We need to restore our family values. And we need responsible gun ownership.”
“We got to get some real courage and honor our immortal obligations instead of our party affiliations,” he also stated.

This isn't the first time McConaughey has pushed gun control. Back in 2018, he called for a ban on all assault rifles.

How are those gun control laws working out in Chicago?
These shootings are happening in areas with lax gun control laws and also in areas with the strictest gun control laws. It's pretty easy to see that more gun control regulations are not the answer.
