Ice-T on the Second Amendment

The rapper/actor gets it. The douchebag contingent in Washington does not.

“It’s legal in the United States,” the rapper said. “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.”

“And do you see any link between that and this sort of instance?” Guru-Murthy challenged.

“No. Not really,” Ice-T responded. “If somebody wants to kill people, they don’t need a gun to do it.”

“Makes it easier though, doesn’t it?” the host pushed back.

“Not really. You can strap explosives on your body. They do that all the time.”

  2. Im not too sure that comment about using gun against the police is appropriate unless ypo are a lawbreaking gang banger and,until that time they are order to go into homes after guns and they obey, they are still my friends. I suspect that the boy in the WH will get his private army to do that anyway…..

  4. Neither the U.S. federal government nor the states can regulate a right. The Second Amendment is a right not a privilege. Moreover it is an unalienable right. This means representatives of a democratic republic, get their powers from the consent of the governed, that being the people, who decides which rights can or cannot be infringed… not the other way around.

    Concealed carry, legislated by the states is in truth regulating a constitutional right, by disguising it as a privilege by way of government control and fear. This is an infringement upon every U.S. citizen’s sense of logic. Furthermore an acknowledgment that political control is in the hands of legislators and not the people where the framers of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill or Rights says it ought to be…. The power of the people has been usurped.

    The U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights was meant to prevent tyranny by the central government. The Fourteenth Amendment was enacted to prevent state tyranny. Neither the Constitution nor the Fourteenth Amendment are effective anymore against government control at both levels.

    A right is not a privilege and a privilege is not a right….
