The nation is still reeling from December Mass Shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary; in incident in which 20 year old Adam Lanza went into an elementary school and shot and killed 26 people, of which 20 were children between the ages of 6-7 years old. This was just the last and seemingly most senseless in a list of shootings in which innocent people died through gun violence. The incident set off a fire storm of protests and demands that sparked the gun control debate all over again.
Recently in an interview with The Boombox, underground legend Tech N9ne spoke out concerning the senseless tragedy and the subsequent backlash aimed at what many feel is a lax gun control policy.
Tech’s perspective on the matter is centered around the absent of extremely flawed parenting that allowed a child, who was obviously seriously disturbed, to have access to an assault rifle.
“Discipline starts at home. If your mom has guns like that in the basement, what the fuck is your mom doing? Is she with the militia?” said Tech. “You know those are [Adam Lanza's] mom’s guns right? I’ve got three [children]. I’ve got two 18-year-olds and I have a 13-year-old. When they were growing up I had them listening to Tech N9ne. I let them listen to Eminem. I talked to them about they problems at school, people, everything. Now, these kids being neglected. Why would Adam Lanza even know how to work these guns if his mom was paying attention?”
He elaborate further, “People want to use the psychotic card, or whatever, but I’m telling you it all starts at home. If there was respect at home, it will carry over. Where was Adam Lanza’s momma?…Guns don’t kill people. You know the saying – stupid people with guns kill people.”
