Rapper and activist Killer Mike has been in the news a lot recently, most prominently in relation to social and political events. After an appearance last month on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” he announced just last week that he was running for Georgia State Representative. Combined with his appearance on “The Nightly Show” on Wednesday (June 15), his presence in the ongoing discourse about issues facing America has become one of the most powerful in the Hip-Hop community. Now, he’s sharing his thoughts on the Charleston, South Carolina church massacre, in which 9 Black Americans lost their lives at the hands of a 21-year-old white male in what was evidently a hate-crime.

Mike took to Twitter on Friday (June 18, 2015) to voice his frustrations with the American justice system, particularly when it comes to gun-control issues.

He quipped to a follower who asked whether it would not have been better if nobody had access to guns. Check out more of his tweets here, and watch the video below to hear some of his views on gun control during a 2014 interview on the Breakfast Club at Power 105.1 in New York City:
