I’ve confessed before that I am hopelessly uninformed about popular culture, so it’s no big surprise that I couldn’t identify a single song by Ice-T.
But since I’m a big supporters of the Second Amendment, I’ve decided he’s now my favorite singer (or would he be called a rapper?) after seeing him defend the right to bear arms on British TV.
Since most of the cops I know are good people who want to fight crimes against people and property (as opposed to harassing people engaged in victimless crimes or enforcing misguided bureaucratic edicts), I would like the video even more if he said “protect yourself from the government” rather than “protect yourself from the police,” but I’m nitpicking.
If you like what Ice-T has to say, you’ll definitely appreciate these other videos.
- Ted Nugent talking about gun ownership and the right of self defense.
- A look at the Switzerland’s strong gun culture and the importance of self defense as a protection against oppression.
- And some very powerful testimony to some weasels on Capitol Hill (make sure to pay attention around the 5:00 mark).
Lastly, for those of you who prefer addressing the issue with humor, this funny video shows that our left-wing friends are incapable of understanding this topic and this video is a heartwarming Christmas story.
Also, check out this joke comparing California with other parts of America, this interview with a general (presumably an urban legend, but could be true), and this t-shirt that I’m putting on my Christmas list.
