Not shy of sharing his political commentary, Chris Rock is weighing in on the issue of gun control. Speaking with The Wrap, the legendary comedian flips one of the NRA’s longstanding arguments for the right to bear arms on its head.
“The gun lobby always says, well, people need the right to protect their property. Every mass shooting is done by a guy who lives with his mother. I honestly believe you should have to have a mortgage to buy a gun. No one with a mortgage has ever gone on a killing spree.”
And if you didn’t catch the humor in this, he added:
“A mortgage is a real background check. … And you know if you go to jail for 30 years you still have to pay your f—ing mortgage.”
