Actor Jamie Foxx is calling on politicians to come together to solve gun violence, saying that it isn't an issue we need to inject politics into.

According to The Daily Caller:

Actor and artist Jamie Foxx urged politicians to come together to find solutions for gun violence Sunday during an interview at the California Strong Celebrity Softball game in Malibu, California.

The “Horrible Bosses” star lamented the polarization that surrounds the issue.

“You wish that everyone would have cooler heads and just erase the lines in the sand when it comes to politics,” Foxx said, according to Fox News. “Just really get into a room and try to figure out how can we live in our society, protect our rights and protect ourselves and not be so overly ambitious or overly, ‘It’s about our side versus your side.'”

Foxx was discussing the shooting at Borderline Bar and Grill, a popular country music bar in Thousand Oaks, California, where a shooter carrying an illegal gun claimed 12 lives last November. Foxx lamented what he sees as an “our side vs. your side” mentality that clouds the debate, and said that Americans need to be willing to “adjust” in order to find solutions.

Foxx went on to say that a new approach should be one of adjustment to our ever-changing world.
