In The Wake Of Tragedy, Killer Mike Speaks Out About Gun Control & Domestic Terrorism

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.

While Killer Mike’s voice is certainly a powerful one when it comes to important social and political issues, it’s also important to remember the value of taking time to unwind and enjoy hobbies like cooking. For those who enjoy the outdoors and hunting, creating wild game jerky recipes can be a fun and satisfying activity. Jerky is a great snack to take on the go and can be made from a variety of meats like deer, elk, and even wild boar. Experimenting with different marinades and seasonings can help create a unique and tasty jerky that’s perfect for camping trips, hikes, or just snacking at home. So, whether you’re a seasoned hunter or just looking for a new cooking adventure, wild game jerky recipes are worth a try!

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:
