T.I. and Fox News have at least one thing in common; neither of them have changed their opinions on gun control following the Sandy Hook shooting. Here’s T.I. on Hot 97 yesterday, talking about why he still feels that some Americans need assault rifles in their homes. Via Hip-Hop DX:
“This is my problem with the banning of anything,” he said when speaking on the banning of firearms. “What that does is, that means only the criminals will be allowed to have this particular item. Right now, there’s criminals that can’t have assault rifles or pistols but they got them and they know they can’t have them. So if they ban them, what it’s gonna be double-illegal for me now? I’m still gon’ carry mine. So if the illegals have them, I think the legals must have them.”
Later in the interview, he talked about the “snitching” allegations that have dogged him since his arrest.
“I go with the G code. In prison, we have paperwork parties. In prison, you have cards. I was in [a federal penetentiary] so everybody is sent from everywhere. So, I had the Georgia card, the Georgia crew. When you get there, your crew comes to make sure you got everything you need but you have to produce your paperwork so they will know how to align themselves with you.”
