Snoop Dogg Tells Congress “Get Off Your A**” With Gun Control

On his latest Drake-assisted single “No Guns Allowed,” Snoop Lion voiced his support for increased gun control in the United States. Now, with Congress putting a halt on the proposition to intensify background checks for buying firearms, the LBC all-star has a special message for Congress.

Snoop told Congress to “get off your ass” with regards to passing increased measures for gun control. He explained that after the tragedy that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, the government needs to do something to curb gun violence in America.

“Politicians, you all got to pay attention, man – this world that we live in, it’s so easy to get your hands on a gun,” he said. “You’ve got to put some restrictions or ramifications on it. I can go outside right now and buy a gun. Easy. Just like that. You all should really think about it before it hits home, before it hits one of your family members or it hits you or affects someone personally that you know.”

He continued, “Those kids that lost their lives in Connecticut, those kids that keep losing their lives, innocent people who keep losing their lives; we have to speak up for them. We have to do something. We have to make a change. If we don’t do nothing, it’s going to hit us. If I can say it and I can mean it — Goddammit, get off your ass and make it happen.”

      Snoop Dogg has been arrested for illegal gun possession how many times? Hypocrite.

      • mike

        You can look at this as hypocritical, or you can take his words into consideration knowing he speaks from experience. Either way, what he did in the past has nothing to do with feeling for those who have lost their loved ones. People can change ya know.

          Yeah, it’s interesting however that a lot of the gun control support seems to be coming from those in the upper echelons of power or fame. They can keep guns, but get rid of the peons’ rights to bear.

            ” They can keep guns, but get rid of the peons’ rights to bear.”
            The stricter regulation would affect anyone, not just the “peons”…-.-

          He speaks from experience, yeah you can say that again lol. He is one of the criminals we need to be keeping guns away from. People change? Should I post his recent arrest record for you?

          Adam Lanza stole the weapons from his mom who owned them legally. How would expanded background checks have done anything to stop what happened?

    Scissors can kill people. Maybe we should take away scissors..

    • Ryan

      for every person that got killed by a scissor how many people are killed by a gun do u think?

      • http://twitter.com/DragTheDepths Michael

        How many people are killed by cars?

        • Ryan

          u forgot the word “purposely”
          How many people were purposely killed by cars? probably not a lot.

          and u need a driving licence to drive thats a type of control.

          • http://twitter.com/DragTheDepths Michael

            Yeah, they’re WAY more controlled than guns, yet responsible for scores more deaths. How many people per year are purposely killed by guns? Not as many as you’d like, so you could use that information to suit your purposes, but it doesn’t even make the top 10 list.

            Just because it’s the most common tool doesn’t mean the blame is shifted to that tool from the person using it.

          • Its me

            Comparing scissors or cars to firearms is a fkn joke and u know it… Of course its the responsibility of the person who uses/abuses it but its a fact that scissors and cars are not designed to harm/kill ppl in the 1st place and they are not capable to kill ppl that strategically like guns can. And plz dont tell me that cars can be driven into a group of ppl, ull make urself look stupid if u do so…

        It was a fucking joke. I’m just saying we shouldn’t take liberties away from people. That’s how we lose morality.. if it’s not already lost.
