Rapper Ice-T And Other Celebs’ Thoughts On Gun Control [PHOTOS]

Celebrities are expressing their thoughts on gun control following the massacre in Aurora, Colorado where a man killed at least 12 people and left dozens injured during a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises

Rapper and Law and Order SVU star Ice-T defended the right to bear arms in an interview with Channel 4 London, as reported by Rolling Stone

“The right to bear arms is because that’s the last form of defense against tyranny. Not to hunt. It’s to protect yourself from the police. If somebody wants to kill people, they don’t need a gun to do it.”

When host Krishnan Guru-Murthy presented the argument that “guns may facilitate murderous acts”, he rebutted saying:

“Not really. You can strap explosives on your body. They do that all the time.”

Ice-T isn’t the only celebrity putting in his two cents. Others expressed their thoughts on gun control via Twitter, including Cory Monteith, Piers Morgan, and Miley Cyrus (to name a few).
