'To protect yourself from the police.'
Ice T goes on British TV to defend gun rights in America. The actor speaks with Channel 4 London in the hours after the Colorado shooting.
Ice-T: Well, I'll give up my gun when everybody does. Doesn't that make sense? If there were guns here, would you want to be the only person without one?
Anchor: So do you carry guns routinely at home?
Ice-T: Yeah, it's legal in the United States. It's part of our Constitution. You know, the right to bear arms is because that's the last form of defense against tyranny. Not to hunt. It's to protect yourself from the police.
