McConaughey hires DC lobbyists in gun control push

Matthew McConaughey hired K Street lobbyists to assist his push for stricter gun laws following the horrific mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, that killed 19 students and two teachers.

The Uvalde-born actor retained a team of Washington, D.C., lobbyists from Avisa Partners to lobby on “responsible gun ownership” issues earlier this month, according to a document filed with Congress Wednesday afternoon.

Those hirings came after McConaughey gave an impassioned plea to lawmakers to expand background checks, raise the minimum age to purchase an AR-15-style rifle and implement red flag laws that allow authorities to take guns away from individuals who pose a threat.

“These are reasonable, practical, tactical regulations to our nation, states, communities, schools, and homes. Responsible gun owners are fed up with the Second Amendment being abused and hijacked by some deranged individuals,” McConaughey said during a recent speech at the White House.

“We are in a window of opportunity right now that we have not been in before. A window where it seems like real change, real change can happen,” he added.

McConaughey’s lobbying team includes Noe Garcia, who served as a policy adviser to former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.), former Trump administration Department of Health and Human Services aide Mike Rubino and former Pentagon press secretary John Procter. – Source
