In an interview to promote his 2012 documentary film on the origins of hip hop, outspoken liberal and avid gun rights supporter Ice-T was asked about his opinion on gun rights.
Without missing a beat, the rapper said, “Well I’ll give up my guns when everybody else does.”
Ice-T when on to say that our right to bear arms is “the last form of defense against tyranny”, and the Second Amendment isn’t about hunting, it’s about about protecting ourselves from an oppressive government.
Responding to the ‘inevitable backlash’ from the anti-gun lobby in response to gun violence, the rapper replied, “Well, that’s not going to change anything in the United States. The United States is based on guns, you know.”
“Like [the rapper] KRS says, ‘you’ll never have justice on stolen land,’” he noted. “So, it’s not going to change.”
