Matthew McConaughey seems to have arrived at a place where a lot of Americans are: He believes in the Second Amendment, but also thinks something HAS to change. 



In an op-ed for the "Austin American-Statesman", he notes that he's a father, the son of a kindergarten teacher, and a native of Uvalde, Texas.  So this is obviously close to his heart. 



And he believes the solution lies in a compromise between gun control and gun responsibility. 



He says, quote, "Keeping firearms out of the hands of dangerous people is not only the responsible thing to do, but it is also the best way to protect the Second Amendment.  We can do both." 



He adds, quote, "Our leaders must make bipartisan compromises on a few reasonable measures to restore responsible gun ownership in our country." 


Those measures include background checks for ALL gun purchases, red flag laws, a waiting period for assault rifle sales, and making 21 the minimum age to buy an assault rifle. 



He also suggests things like "gun safety training, safe storage proposals, and bolstering school safety."  And he asks that companies, private organizations, and responsible gun owners step up to help with those measures. 



Matthew says, quote, "Business as usual isn't working.  'That's just how it is' cannot be an excuse.  The heinous bloodshed of innocent people cannot become bearable.  If we continue to just stand by, we're living a lie.  With every right there comes a duty. 



"For ourselves, our children, and our fellow Americans . . . we have a duty to be responsible gun owners.  Please do yours and protect the Second Amendment through gun responsibility. 



"It's time for real leaders to step up and do what's right, so we can each and all just keep livin'."
