Tech N9ne Says Gun Control Begins at Home

With blankault rifles being introduced to school security in Fontana and talk of gun control legislation ratcheting up following the Sandy Hook shootings, Tech N9ne made sure to put the question of personal responsibility back into the debate on gun violence.

Tech N9ne told The Boombox, “Discipline starts at home. If your mom has guns like that in the basement, what the f#@$k is your mom doing? […] 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.”

The rapper from Kansas-City spoke adamantly against playing “the psychotic card […] I’m telling you it all starts at home. If there was respect at home, it will carry over.” But he noted that being a highly visible figure in the hip-hop carried an unfair disadvantage. Even though basketball players and football players may carry weapons without raising a brow, rappers who need the same protection are often not allowed to obtain weapons legally and are forced to purchase underground. It’s a cycle that still needs solving.
