Ice-T reacts to Colorado theater shooting: The 'United States is based on guns'

Rapper and actor Ice-T was in London promoting his new documentary The Art of Rap when news of the Colorado movie theater massacre reached his studio. he was asked about his attitude on guns and it turns out Ice-T is a strict defender of the right to bear arms.

Ice-T told Channel 4’s Krishnan Guru-Murthy guns were legal in the U.S. because because they are “the last form of defense against tyranny. Not to hunt. It’s to protect yourself from the police.” But that he would be happy to turn his in if everyone else did.

Some have responded to the shooting in Aurora, Colorado by calling for stronger gun control. Ice-T doesn’t think that there is a connection between the two. “If somebody wants to kill people, they don’t need a gun to do it…You can strap explosives to your body. They do that all the time,” he said.

The ‘Godfather of gangster rap’ also said that the backlash against guns would not change anything in the United States because according to him “the United States is based on guns.” He ended his interview by quoting fellow rapper KRS-One. “You’re never going to have justice on stolen land.”
