Ice-T on Gun Control: No Need for a Gun to Kill Somebody

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 said.  When asked if there was a link between the wide availability of weapons and deadly incidents like the one that occurred Friday in Aurora, Colo., Ice-T seemed skeptical.  “No. Not really . . . really. You know what I’m saying, if somebody wants to kill people, you know, they don’t need a gun to do it,” he said.   Guru-Murthy pressed the point, asking if access to guns makes it easier to carry out a murderous plan. The suspected gunman in Colorado, James Holmes, was able to legally buy an assault weapon and had thousands of rounds of ammunition delivered to his home.   Ice-T said would-be murders will find a way.  “You can strap explosives on your body, they do that all the time,” he said.  Ice-T also said he carries guns routinely in the U.S., and he’ll stop “when everybody does. Doesn’t that make sense? If there were guns here, would you want to be the only person without one?”
