The May 2022 shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas struck quite literally close to home for the 54-year-old actor Matthew McConaughey, who is a native of the city.

After the incident, where 19 students and two teachers were killed by an 18-year-old former student at Robb Elementary School, McConaughey joined a briefing at the White House, pleading with Americans to “renegotiate our wants from our needs.”

“We need responsible ownership, we need background checks. We need to raise the minimum to purchase an AR 15 rifle to 21. We need a waiting period for those rifles. We need red flag laws and consequences for those who abuse them, these are reasonable, practical, tactical regulations,” he said.

The Oscar-winning actor adds, “Responsible gun owners are fed up with the Second Amendment being abused and hijacked by some deranged individuals.”

McConaughey and his wife, Camila Alves, have since launched the Greenlights Grant Initiative, which, according to the website, “creates safer school environments and ensure the well-being of our children.”
