Not All from the Left Support Gun Control (But Most Do) By John Steele
Here is a Black rapper, who presumably supports all of the other causes of the Left, except gun control, which he argues is against Black identity interests:
“In an interview with NRATV’s Colion Noir, Killer Mike explained how the left equates gun control with progress and observed, “[They are] going to progress us into slavery.” In the lead-up to the March 14 school walk out for gun control, Killer Mike said he told his kids, “I love you, but if you walk out that school walk out my house.” “You can’t continue to be the lackey,” the Atlanta-based rapper and business owner said. “You’re a lackey of the progressive movement because you have never disagreed with the people who tell you what to do.” Noir pointed out how celebrities like George Clooney and Steven Spielberg pledged $500,000 to Saturday’s gun control march.
“Celebrities often don’t know what to do. They’re told what to do,” Killer Mike said, explaining how a famous rapper, who’s a friend of his, felt pressured into doing an anti-gun promo. Killer Mike told his friend that he’s very pro-Second Amendment” and that it is about the children for him — after a shooting on his daughter’s college campus (Savannah State University); “I talked to my wife and daughter after that, the decision was we’re going to go to Savannah, she’s going to get a gun and train more.” “We’re raising a generation of kids where everyone gets’ a trophy. But in real life, everyone doesn’t get a trophy,” Killer Mike said. “In real life, the cops don’t come on time.”

Along with this, the contradictions in the students who are pushing the gun control agenda, who are in turn being pushed themselves, are being exposed. Most are so ill-informed about guns that they do not even know what an “assault weapon,” is. Probably they don’t need to since their aim is to take away all guns, and make Americans as cucked as Australians:
The commo salutes are being misinterpreted, which is unfortunate:
