Ice-T Defends Gun Rights: "The Last Form Of Defense Against Tyranny"

From RCP:

Ice-T: Well, I'll give up my gun when everybody does. Doesn't that make sense? If there were guns here, would you want to be the only person without one?

 Krishnan Guru-Murthy, anchor, Channel 4 News: So do you carry guns routinely at home?

 Ice-T: Yeah, it's legal in the United States. It's part of our Constitution. You know, 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.

Anchor: And do you see any link between that and these sorts of incidents (Aurora)?

Ice-T: No. Nah. Not really really. You know what I'm saying, if somebody wants to kill people, you know, they don't need a gun to do it.

 Anchor: It makes it easier though, doesn't it?

 Ice-T: Not really. You can strap explosives on your body, they do that all the time. On anti-gun laws: "That's not going to change anything. The Untied States is based on guns, you know."
