Mass shootings, particularly those in schools, are a very troubling and sadly recurring issue in the US.
Actor Vince Vaughn believes one way to stop them is by allowing guns inside the educational institutions attended by the nations' youth.
He shared his view in a recent interview with the UK edition of GQ magazine.
Said Vaughn, "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."
The actor further notes that mass shootings tend to occur in places that are known to be without firearms, and thus people inside can't defend themselves against attack.
It's Vaughn's feeling that arming the entities would allow them to protect the students from such attacks.
On the matter of gun carrying at large, Vaughn remarked, "I support people having a gun in public full stop, not just in your home...We have the right to bear arms to resist the supreme power of a corrupt and abusive government...It's the same reason we have freedom of speech."
