“The thing that’s so powerful about students is that, when you haven’t had your idealism broken yet, you’re able to speak from a place that has no confusion, where there is a clear set of values.”
The enigmatic Bill Murray has spoken. And he isn’t usually on the forefront of socio-political issues. Bordering on reclusive, he’s more likely to be seen at a Cubs game or modelling his latest fancy pants “Bill-Bottoms,” from his William Murray line of golf fashion on the green.
But now, Murray has spoken out in support of the student activists who have been shaking the political establishment with their grit and determination to do what generations of adults have failed to do: gun control.
