T.I. has always been vocal on political matters and this time is no exception. In the wake of the terrifying Las Vegas shooting, the rapper has opened up about the Second Amendment as the gun control discussion has once again taken center stage. We have learned where Tip stands in this debate that is a matter of life and death for so many American people caught in the crossfire – literally!
After each incident of this kind makes victims, the debate between Republicans and Democrats tends to reopen.
But these days, thanks to social media and its influence, entertainers, and artists of every kind like to enter the conversation as well.
They use their own platforms to try and make a change by sharing their own views.
T.I. is one of those influencers who has almost never kept quiet on any sociopolitical issue.
Prior to the Las Vegas shooting, the rapper has voiced his opinions on huge topics such as Black Lives Matter, police brutality and other divisive issues.
Now, T.I. shared his view on gun control and it is bound to get a lot of citizens talking.
When asked whether or not gun control laws should be modified so that American people couldn’t use assault rifles, the performer said: ‘To me man, as long as the criminals have ‘em, I think citizens should be able to have ‘em. I think there should be, like, mental evaluations. The same for people running for president, by the way.’
We are not surprised this is his stance considering the rapper is a huge fan of the heavy artillery.
Back in 2007, the man was even arrested for possession of illegal firearms, such as silencers and unlicensed machine guns.
Do you agree with Tip’s view on gun control or not?
