Chris Rock Says Only People With Mortgages Should Be Allowed To Own Guns
Chris Rock has a suggestion for reducing gun violence: Limit gun ownership to people with mortgages.
“Every mass killer lives with his mother,” said Rock. “It’s never people who have their own place.”
His suggestion would address the issue of personal history, Rock noted, “because every mortgage already comes with a real background check.”
It would also have a pre-deterrent effect on potential perpetrators.
“If you go to jail for 30 years,” said Rock, “you’d still have to pay that mortgage.”
