WWITD – What Would Ice-T Do?

The question I’ve been asking myself daily since the early 90s:

Real talk.  Too bad he didn’t have Coco beside him there. :P

Thoughts?

I always chuckle to myself when I hear a guy of foreign extraction(British) tries to argue for gun control in America.

+2 respect for Ice T. This reporter is clearly sheltered and probably terrified of guns, Hell, he looks so on edge just asking questions, Imagine if Ice T was carrying and he saw a print. **shits pants** It is true tho, that if there were more armed citizens then that one psycho will have way less of a chance to cause the damage he did or enough sense to quit before he/she starts. Cases like Denver should be used to strengthen our right to carry but to the media and uneducated it is grounds to attack, we have a right to be a first responder cause sometimes that first response comes 12 people too late. As a gun owner it would be almost embarrassing for me to be gunned down in open public because I’m not allowed to carry. I can have the largest arsenal in town but completely defenseless while picking up take out. That is a shame. Oh NJ why? Wake up America, we might have a great army to protect us for the outside, but we need the right to protect us from the inside.

Same guy who said, “For everyone of those fucking police.
I’d like to take a pig out here in this parking lot and shoot em in their motherfucking face.” Cop Killer, lyrics.

It might be more in context if you were to quote the *entire* introduction to the song:
“This next record is dedicated to some personal friends of mine, the LAPD. For every cop that has ever taken advantage of somebody, beat ’em down or hurt ’em, because they got long hair, listen to the wrong kinda music, wrong color, whatever they thought was the reason to do it. For every one of those fuckin’ police

He said that to A.) Express anger over what he felt was systemic abuse of power by (a certain) police department, but more so B.) TO SELL AN ALBUM.

BTW, this is also the same guy who played a police officer for about 10 years on Law & Order (and had cop roles in a few movies too).

Funny you should say he plays a cop, yes he does, and even in the above video he says, “Not to hunt. It’s (firearms are to) protect yourself from the police”

Ice T is one person in the limelight I think would actually make a decent politician

“…It’s to protect yourself from the Police.” Ice T, you are fucking awesome.

Stutter..stutter.. Sssssss So d- do you carry guns.. I half expected Ice T to reply, “Yes right here on my waistband and in my pocket and another in the ankle 24-7.” The English are among the most uptight people when it comes to firearms.

Its only the people in charge that don’t want guns because, like most of Europe the populace is so miserable if they had access to weapons like the us the government would be overthrown in no time. The poor guys pay 20% sales tax for their free healthcare.

#1. I’m sick and tired of foreigners, specially Brits, discussing our issues and acting as if we were just a bunch of rubes. Someone needs to remind the British people that it was our forefathers who shot their forefathers and sent them scurrying back to their island. So “piss-off” to them.

#2. I have my weapons to defend family and self against, inter alia, tyranny and…..human scum who listens to the crap that Ice-T sings about.

Peter, you haven’t listened to “The Winner Loses” by Body Count (Ice-T does vocals)

1. I get what you are saying, but we do the exact same thing to lots of countries. Most of the Third World is discussed in a similar condescending fashion. 1b. It was scurrying back to the rest of their Empire because Benjamin Franklin, that raunchy devil, talked the French into making moves. Oh, and, there was that whole “burning down the White House” thing in the War of 1812, too. The Brits can fight, just because they make owning firearms extremely difficult for civilians doesn’t mean they are pansies. They just perpetuate that so people underestimate them. ;p

Oh and BTW, for you bitch asses complaining about the cop killer thing, Eric Clapton and Bob Marley both shot the sheriff, and Johny Cash shot a man just to watch him die. No one cared about those songs. GTFO

lets say they banned guns and every legal gun owner turned their gun(s) over (like that would ever happen not over here). now the only people that have guns guns are the police (other government agencies) and all the criminals crime would increase dramatically. so no guns i a really bad idea and most people dont understand that.

Good responses to the questions. Would have loved it more if he had said “to protect you from *a* police *state.*”

Honestly, that colorado guy had rigged his apartment and car with explosives, if he didn’t have the guns he would have had IED’s to throw at the crowd. He was smart enough to make pipe bombs filled with BB’s, etc.

I really wonder what made the guy snap…

The second amendment has been around for 250 years. It hasn’t changed. semiautomatic weapons have been around for 100 years. They haven’t changed. Getting rid of either one won’t change the violence in our society.
