Hollywood actor Matthew McConaughey believes it would be better for Americans to forget the United States' second amendment right of being able to legally bear arms since a minority of people are always in the headlines for misusing guns.
In next month's issue of GQ magazine, McConaughey got into a discussion on the Washington Redskins and the controversy surrounding the NFL team's name and logo, according to NESN.
McConaughey, who hung out at Redskins camp last summer, explained his opposition against calls for the team to change its name.
"It's twofold. What interests me is how quickly it got pushed into the social consciousness. We were all fine with it since the 1930s, and all of a sudden we go, 'Nah, gotta change it'? It seems like when the first levee breaks, everybody gets on board," he said.
"I know a lot of Native Americans don't have a problem with it, but they're not going to say, 'No, we really want the name.' That's not how they're going to use their pulpit."
Then, the "Dallas Buyers Club" actor added his thoughts on gun control in response to the same question, Breitbart reported.
"It's like my feeling on gun control: I get it. You have the right to have guns. But look, let's forget that right. Let's forget the pleasure you get safely on your range, because it's in the wrong hands in other places."
After the Dec. 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting, the issue of having guns in and around schools has been especially salient, prompting policymakers to question whether adequate gun safety laws were in place.
"Since that shooting, several organizations have argued that several gaps in gun laws still exist despite many states tightening background checks for firearm purchases," according to Time.
Recently, the issue was brought into light again when a 9-year-old girl accidentally shot and killed her shooting range instructor with an Uzi. Later on, she admitted that the gun "was too much for her."
