Rapper Killer Mike is unimpressed with the Parkland High School survivors' March for Our Lives "progressive" push for gun control. In an interview with NRATV’s Colion Noir, Killer Mike warned that gun control will "progress us into slavery".
Killer Mike spoke on the leftwing push for gun control by putting children and student activists at the forefront of their progressive agenda.
“[They are] going to progress us into slavery," said Killer Mike who referred to the Second Amendment's Right to Bear Arms which protects U.S. citizens from the government.
The Atlanta-based rapper and business owner called the student activists "lackeys of the progressive movement".
“You can’t continue to be the lackey,” he said. “You’re a lackey of the progressive movement because you have never disagreed with the people who tell you what to do.”

Killer Mike explained that he warned his own children about getting involved in the gun control debate in the lead up to the March 14 school walkout.
Killer Mike said he told his kids, “I love you, but if you walk out that school walk out my house.”
His words conflicted with Keisha Lance Bottom, the black mayor of Atlanta, who angered some Atlanta parents by issuing a declaration praising the students for their acts of civil disobedience.
Mayor Bottom also raised eyebrows when she appointed Killer Mike and his fellow rapper T.I. Harris to her transition team.
Noir referred to T.I.'s prior legal issues with guns, saying T.I. "felt pressured into doing an anti-gun promo."
“Celebrities often don’t know what to do. They’re told what to do,” Killer Mike said.
After a fatal shooting on his daughter’s college campus (Savannah State University); Killer Mike said, “I talked to my wife and daughter after that, the decision was we’re going to go to Savannah, she’s going to get a gun and train more."
“We’re raising a generation of kids where everyone gets a trophy. But in real life, everyone doesn’t get a trophy,” Killer Mike said. “In real life, the cops don’t come on time."
In related news, friend of the blog Omar "Slim" White expounded on the Democrats efforts to pass gun laws restricting gun ownership to people who were diagnosed with mental health issues.
Slim noted that the gun law would keep guns out of the hands of millions of young black men and women who were diagnosed with ADHD as children. "That's how they're going to disarm the black community," he said.
Most Americans were unimpressed by the children and student activists marching for gun control in cities around the country on Saturday. The March for Our Lives rallies in Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles were attended by prominent celebrities, some of whom paid travel and hotel expenses for the Parkland school shooting survivors who organized the march.

Some news networks estimated the crowd in D.C. was among the biggest marches in U.S. history.
But Twitter users were quick to dismiss those claims.
"CBS new reported that estimates put it at about 220k at peak. That wouldn’t put it even remotely close to the biggest march in US history. It’s actually less than the lower end estimates of Trumps inauguration attendance".
And user @Citizen tweeted:
"They certainly didn’t capture an image of the number of f-cks given. Lol. Children activists. Laughable. This is why the voting age is 18. I mean, kids nowadays can’t even get a job by 18, much less have logically sound political opinions".
