Guns in America, Rockie Fresh Sounds Off (EXCLUSIVE)
In light of the recent executive orders that President Obama issued regarding the issue of gun control, and the multiple devastating shootings that have swept across America, AOL is dedicating a week of coverage specifically to the discussion of Guns in America.
One city that is particularly plagued by gun violence is Chicago, so when Rockie Fresh, a rising rapper from the windy city stopped by for an interview with The BoomBox yesterday, we had to get his opinion on the topic. Read his musings below and sound off on Twitter with your own thoughts.
"It's definitely real out there. I feel like a lot of people that traumatize us with the usage of guns are the people who are going to get guns regardless. Whether you put tight gun control on it or not, these people are getting guns because they can easily access them. And with that, it's like they're already out here now.
So if you wanna try to control people who are trying to go about it the right way, and we're the ones that's kind moreso in danger at this point because we don't have anything to protect ourselves with. So I think it's something that the government needs to think about deeply and takes into consideration all sides.
In Chicago, I mean these are 16, 17, 18 year old kids committing murders. And they're getting these guns – not from their parents. So its not like an in house type of thing. And with that, it has to be bigger than just upping the gun control I think. And I don't know what it's going to take, if I did, I'd probably be running for president."
