Vince Vaughn on Second Amendment: I Believe in the Right to Defend Yourself

by DANIEL NUSSBAUM  |  published on February 23, 2015

In an extensive interview with Playboy magazine, actor Vince Vaughn sounded off on his libertarian politics, the Second Amendment, and affirmative action.

Sitting down with Playboy contributing editor David Hochman, Vaughn, who shot to fame after starring in 1996’s Swingers and then parlayed his comedic talent and natural charisma into a blockbuster career as a member of the “Frat Pack,” explained that he is a libertarian Ron Paul supporter, owns a gun for self-defense, and believes affirmative action is racist.

“I would use the term libertarian to describe my politics,” Vaughn said.

I like the principles of the Constitution and the republic, which is a form of government built around the law. A republic did very well in Rome until they got a lot of central power and Caesar decided he knew what was best for everyone. That type of government works if you’re looking to start welfare programs, if you’re going to conquer the world and use force a certain way. But even back then, it didn’t work. More and more people went on the dole and others went bankrupt, and businesses couldn’t afford to pay their staff.
