Matthew McConaughey is on a mission to change gun laws. The Oscar-winner was born in Uvalde, Texas, where the Robb Elementary School shooting took place. He has been on the ground trying to effect change since the tragedy took place.
A day after publishing an op-ed in The Austin American-Statesman on “gun responsibility,” the Dallas Buyers Club actor gave an emotional speech at the White House urging lawmakers to enact gun reform legislation.
On Tuesday (June 7th), McConaughey stood at the press briefing podium and held up a drawing by Alithia Ramirez, one of the victims who was just 10 years old. He shared that she dreamed of going to art school in Paris.
