Matthew McConaughey is serious about making real change when it comes to guns in the United States…meeting politicians and speaking out from the White House after a shooting that killed 19 elementary school students in his hometown.
The actor joined the White House press briefing on Tuesday, urging politicians on both sides to take action after the shooting of Uvalde — saying that making a difference in the safety of our country is the best way to honor the lives lost.
McConaughey says he and his wife, Camillespent a lot of time on the ground with the families of the shooting victims – sharing stories, tears and memories… and now he’s urging top officials to change things.
Matthew’s words come following a short encounter with President Biden …and a second day of meetings with lawmakers, as Congress this week mulls new gun safety legislation.
Of course, his WH speech isn’t the first time the actor has spoken out on this issue. He took to social media, Advocacy for gun reform just a few hours after shooting.
Well, now it looks like he’s taking matters into his own hands…directly pleading with those in power to make this time different.
Our sincere thanks to
