Ice-T: Guns Are The ‘Last Form of Defense Against Tyranny’
When it comes to guns and the Second Amendment rap artist and TV star Ice-T, who is liberal, does not pull punches and says that the right to bear arms is “the last form of defense against tyranny,” and that the right is not about hunting animals but about protecting oneself from an oppressive government.
In an interview on Britain’s Channel 4 News, host Krishnan Guru-Murthy asked Ice-T, in reference to the 2012 mass shooting in Aurora, Colo., “why he’s such a defender of the right to bear arms.”
Ice-T said, “Well, I’ll give up my gun when everybody else does. Doesn’t that make sense? If there were guns here, would you want to be the only person without one?
Guru-Murthy then asked, “So do you carry guns routinely at home?”
Ice-T answered, “Yeah, it’s legal in the United States. It’s part of our Constitution. You know, the right to bear arms is because that’s the last form of defense against tyranny. Not to hunt. It’s to protect yourself from the police.”
