Do You Want To Be The Only Person Without a Gun?

Do You Want To Be The Only Person Without a Gun?

In a recent interview one celebrity stood up for the right to self defense…rapper turned movie star, Ice-T.

Ice-T: Well, I’ll give up my gun when everybody does. Doesn’t that make sense? If there were guns here, would you want to be the only person without one?

Krishnan Guru-Murthy, anchor, Channel 4 News: So do you carry guns routinely at home?

Ice-T: 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.

He’s correct in pointing out that the Second Amendment is about freedom from tyranny, not hunter’s rights…but I wish he’d stopped there or clarified that last point about police…come on Ice (I hope you don’t mind me calling you by just your first name)…tyrants is what I assume you meant…not law enforcement.

Additionally, a firearm is of no use in self-defense if you don’t have both the proper training and practice to employ it successfully when chaos banishes your calm and the adrenalin is pumping.  You must seek professional training and follow-up with adequate practice to be able to employ your weapon on muscle memory.

  1. Strange bedfellows, indeed. And yet, how does NY Mayor Bloomburg still miss it?! Bloomburg stated that he thinks the police should go on strike until the people realize how dangerous guns are (link below). Seems to me, if there are no police around, myself and Ice-T will make damn sure we can protect ourselves. Just sayin’
