On Tuesday, Texas Actor Matthew McConaughey traveled to Washington, DC to appear at the White House press briefing to advocate for a series of gun control proposals that jibed with some of President Joe Biden’s radical anti-second Amendment agenda based on the Uvalde mass school shooting that took the lives in 19 children and two adult teachers last month.
“As I said, this moment is different,” McConaughey said whilemaking an appearance at the White House press briefing room. “We are in a window of opportunity right now that we have not been in before. A window in where it seems like real change — real change can happen.”
McConaughey, born in Uvalde, Texas, said he met with family members of the victims.
“How can the loss of these lives matter?” McConaughey said to reporters. “While we honor and acknowledge the victims, we need to recognize that this time, seems like something else is different.”
Let’s be honest. When you think about it, this moment is not very different at all. The Democrats created Gun-Free School Zone laws that make our children sitting ducks inside schools because an active shooter who wants to kill as many innocent people as possible, without a responsible adult nearby who can shoot back at him, will always choose a Gun-Free School Zone school.
I don’t hear a single Democrat talking about rethinking Gun-Free School Zone laws and arming teachers who will be vetted and, most importantly, letting the world know about it by posting big signs that cannot be missed right outside every school entrance that teachers may be armed and will do everything they can to protect their students. That is a lot more compassion for student safety that putting up a sign that says THIS IS A GUN-FREE SCHOOL ZONE and they let the kids become sitting ducks with no real-world protection. If you want to change something that will really make a difference, get rid of those asinine laws.
A sign like this outside every school entrance will make a potential shooter think twice:
McConaughey got emotional as he talked about the children who were shot and killed at the Robb Elementary School and, at one point, started tearing up and slapping the podium for effect.
First of all, why is the White House bringing him in to talk about disarming millions of gun owners who did not shoot anyone? That’s what the Democrats ultimately want. McConaughey appeared to be sincere when speaking during the presser, but we are talking about the Biden White House that has a political angle on everything.
The actor targeted the AR-15 rifle, the bogeyman for all anti-Second Amendment leftists, for killing children, leaving their bodies “not only dead but hollow.”
McConaughey said he was bringing a message from the people of his hometown.
“We want secure and safe schools and we want gun laws that won’t make it so easy for the bad guys to get these damn guns,” he said.
Get rid of Gun-Free School Zone laws and arm some responsible adults inside schools.
In McConaughey’s defense, he told reporters that they need to “restrain sensationalized media coverage” when mass shootings happen. Fat chance of the vultures caring more about the country at large than getting ratings.
“Responsible gun owners are fed up with the Second Amendment being abused and hijacked by some deranged individuals,” he said, claiming that even more gun control laws would be a “step forward” to protecting gun rights.
How so? The Democrats propose gun control laws that would only affect law-abiding gun owners. Criminals would not be stopped from getting and using guns by any of the plethora of gun control measures they have proposed since Uvalde. That’s just a fact.
“We are not as divided as we’re being told we are,” he asserted, urging some “middle ground” on the issue of gun control. Nope. Because every time Democrats bring up gun control, they never propose sensible laws. I keep harping on it, but a sensible measure would be to revoke Gun-Free School Zone laws and let potential shooters know that they will more than likely be shot and killed if they try to hurt the students.
“This should be a non-partisan issue,” he said.
Agreed, but the Democrats always make it a partisan issue. Conservatives always stand on the side of the Second Amendment and common sense while Democrats have always had an agenda of disarming America so that the government can become tyrannical. You can’t destroy a culture by promoting death and radical anti-American progressive policies for decades, breaking down the civil society, and then wonder why all of a sudden there are mass shootings.
McConaughey blasted political figures in DC for not rising above their political ambitions and demonstrate “real courage” to support gun control laws. So now it’s considered real courage to want to disarm law-abiding gun owners? No thanks.
“We got to take a sober, humble and honest look in the mirror and rebrand ourselves on what we truly value,” he said.
Good luck with that when you include Democrats. They are never sober. They are never humble. And they are certainly never honest.
The war is not on guns. Those are the objects they are rhetorically using to fight the war. The war is on the people’s right to defend themselves from people who misuse guns to harm them or their loved ones. Until progressive Hollywood actors, progressive Democrats, and progressive gun control advocates understand that, we have nothing to talk about.
