Rapper Eminem went on an anti-gun tirade and it showed what a hypocrite he is
Washed up rapper Eminem is the latest celebrity to come down with Trump Derangement Syndrome.
He has lobbed attack-after-attack on President Trump and complains that Trump hasn’t responded to him.
But his latest attempt to prove he’s “woke” showed just what a phony he is when it comes to the Second Amendment.
Performing at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, Eminem went on an anti-Trump and anti-gun rant:
This whole country is going nuts, and the NRA is in our way
They’re responsible for this whole production
They hold the strings, they control the puppet
And they threaten to take donor bucks
So they know the government won’t do nothing and no one’s budging
Gun owners clutching their loaded weapons
They love their guns more than our children
In the past, Eminem has profited off of explicitly promoting gun violence.
In one song, “Get My Gun,” Eminem threatens to kill someone and gunshots are constantly heard in the background.

Leftist celebrities are ramping up their attacks on the Second Amendment ahead of the “March For Our Lives” anti-gun rally on March 24.
They want to blame law abiding gun owners and NRA members for crimes perpetrated by madmen and thugs.
But the truth is, gun rights advocates are much less likely to commit violent crimes than the average American.
According to research done by John R. Lott, Jr., for the U.S. population as a whole, the crime rate was 37 times higher than for off duty police officers.
But concealed carry permit holders are even more law-abiding than police officers.
Concealed carry permit holders are even more law-abiding than police. Between
October 1, 1987 and June 30, 2015, Florida revoked 9,999 concealed handgun
permits for misdemeanors or felonies. This is an annual revocation rate of 12.8
permits per 100,000. In 2013 (the last year for which data is available), 158 permit
holders were convicted of a felony or misdemeanor – a conviction rate of 22.3 per
100,000. Combining the data for Florida and Texas data, we find that permit
holders are convicted of misdemeanors and felonies at less than a sixth the rate
for police officers.
Among police, firearms violations occur at a rate of 16.5 per 100,000 officers.
Among permit holders in Florida and Texas, the rate is only 2.4 per 100,000.
That is just 1/7th of the rate for police officers. But there’s no need to focus on
Texas and Florida — the data are similar in other states.
Celebrity gun control activists like Eminem don’t have a leg to stand on when the facts are laid bare.
