As Twitchy reported yesterday, rapper Shyne is no fan of President Obama. Today, the former Diddy protégé revealed that he does not support gun control, arguing that better education and job prospects are the keys to reducing inner-city violence.

We can’t argue with that.

Most of the firearms used to carry out crimes are handguns, not so-called “assault weapons.”

And education opportunities for inner-city children are sorely lacking. (If you disagree, watch this film.) It’s too bad most inner-city voters don’t support politicians who will allow greater choice in education.

In related news, Shyne escalated his attacks on President Obama:

    Speaking truth to power!

    What do you have when liberalism has run it’s course? Anarchy, debauchery, crime, dysfunction and cesspools as far as the eye can see.

    The GOP has no such gun problems …. so clearly guns are not the problem …. it’s the Dem’s failed ideology at work here.

    Get Po Shyne a dictionary!

      I don’t care how he says it if he speaks the truth. Some of our best educated and most persuasive speakers are complete idiots!

        Why would you listen to anyone who is illiterate to begin with?

        • dwsmokin

          Not a fan of illiteracy, but even less of stupidity. Based on what I’ve seen lately, quite a bit of literate stupidity out there. If what he says is right-even if it’s off grammatically-i have to agree. He can always learn to speak, but as Ron White says-“you can’t fix stupid.”

    That’s encouraging….even though I’ve never heard of him.

    Although I completely agree with Shyne’s comments, it’s hard to reconcile that with the fact that he was sentenced 10 years for shooting up a bar.

    But those two things are what keeps Democratic-voting populations from turning into pro-Republican ones. The Democrats have to keep the ghetto, the ghetto to continue pulling in those votes and wins for office. A destabilized city is a Democrat-friendly city.

    Shyne, I’m not normally a Rap fan-but I love ya! Keep it up, and keep speaking truth!
