Matthew McConaughey writes op-ed calling for 'gun responsibility' after school shooting in hometown

Reflecting on the recent Robb Elementary School tragedy in an op-ed published by USA Today on Monday, McConaughey argued there is a "difference between control and responsibility" and insisted there is "no constitutional barrier" to the latter. "Depraved acts of violence, with guns as the weapon of choice, are ripping apart families, tearing at people's faith and shredding the fabric of our society.” Matthew McConaughey via USA Today. “We have an epidemic of indiscriminate mass shootings, of parents burying their children, of inaction, and buck-passing. Saving the unnecessary loss of lives is not a partisan issue.”
