Guns ‘just like forks’


LOS ANGELES: Hollywood star Vince Vaughn insists guns should be allowed in American schools.

The Internship star has told GQ magazine that he supports the right to own a gun and banning them is similar to banishing forks to stop making people fat.

Despite a series of shootings in US schools, asked whether guns should be allowed, Vaughn replied: “Of course.’’

“You think the politician­s that run my country and your country don’t have guns in the schools their kids go to?” the 45-year-old added.

“They do. And we should be allowed the same rights.

“Banning guns is like banning forks in an attempt to stop making people fat.’’

Vaughn (pictured) added: “All these gun shootings that have gone down in America since 1950, only one or maybe two have happened in nongun-free zones.”
