Yes, Killer Mike.
Hip hop artist and activist Killer Mike is a firm believer in our constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. This is further evidence that not every entertainer is stuck on stupid.
Yesterday, he took to social media to comment about the shooting in Charleston, South Carolina when a white gunman killed 9 African-American Christians during a Wednesday evening church service.
“What happened in Charleston is an act of terror committed by a terrorist. Simple & plain. I wish those folks in that church had been armed,” Killer Mike tweeted.
We wish that were the case as well. However, as we noted yesterday, South Carolina has a law against carrying a gun into a church.
Killer Mike received some pushback for his views, and he responded to some of the critics.
To one who said that nobody should have to carry a gun to pray, Killer Mike replied: “yet it Wud have lessened that body count. For that reason I strongly disagree with you.”
To someone who said that more guns would have increased the body count, Mike replied: “I know no one attacks NRA meetings. Wonder why?”
He also said: “I’m pro Gun and this further shows why.”
