‘Prohibited Person’ Eminem’s Hypocritical Gun Stance as Vapid as His ‘Music’

That’s some “common-sense gun safety”! Seeing as how the anti-gun rapper is a prohibited person, that gun had better be a prop. (Eminem / Twitter)

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Rapper Eminem once again dropped a surprise album, releasing ‘Music to Be Murdered By’ on Friday — along with a video that calls for changes to gun laws,” the Associated Press gushed Friday in a hit piece on the right to keep and bear arms carried by the increasingly lurching-to-the-left Fox News. “The Detroit rapper’s new music video for ‘Darkness,’ one of the album’s 20 tracks, depicts a shooting at a concert.”

How original. Not.

Madonna pulled a similar stunt recently, pretending to be a shooting victim at a Pulse Nightclub-type scene that conveniently omitted her armed guard who shot an intruder on her estate.

Something else that’s not original—pretending his appropriation of cover art is an homage. Alfred Hitchcock’s photo was an example of his trademark macabre humor employed in the opening monologues to his TV show, It was intended to entertain. Eminem, or Slim Shady, or Marshall Mathers, or whatever voice is coming out of Legion at the moment, is doing it to demand an unchallengeable state monopoly of violence. He wants the government to deploy armed enforcers to deny you and your posterity your fundamental birthright.

Speaking of photos, it’s curious that the portrait selected for this piece features the cRap music “star” posing in front of a Weinstein Company backdrop. I’m still waiting on Harvey to make good on his threat to make gun owners “wish [we] weren’t alive.”

So what, specifically, does Emislimathers want to see happen on guns? Evidently, everything, as he offers no specifics. You know, “Something must be done!

“When will this end? When enough people care,” he admonishes. “Register to vote at vote.gov. Make your voice heard and help change gun laws in America.”

“Change”? How?

That Slime Shady can’t point to one “gun law” that would make a difference is not the point. The gun-grabbers aren’t after just one gun law. This is why he urges his useful idiot followers (and face it, if you were one, you’d have to be) to follow the lead of Everytown, Gungrabby Gabby and other government über alles cultists. You know, surrender their rights to a control freak New York billionaire who wants to micromanage their salt and soda intake in addition to keeping guns out of the hands of “those people.”

It would seem music style isn’t the only thing he wants to appropriate.

What remains to be seen is how many of the people dumb enough to make this guy “worth” $230 million are also dumb enough to overlook his demands to disarm his countrymen, and how many know he not only employs personal bodyguards but has reportedly demonstrated his personal affinity for engaging “gun violence” (a term invented by power-coveting swindlers to divert attention from personal responsibility to the object they want to exclusively possess):

“’The last time that I seen Em, we both had our hands on our weapons,’ Williams tells Prez and Mac Jay of MMM. ‘That’s the last time I seen him. We had our hands on our guns man! O.K. Corral, man! That’s how the relationship ended with Em and I, we had our hands on our guns.’”

This is hardly the first time we’ve seen projection and self-mistrust factor into calls to disarm others. And naturally, that can’t manifest itself without vile and lying insults:

“NRA loves their guns more than our children.”

I’m the NRA, bub. My (not the collectivist “our”) children (wished shot to death by another self control-challenged gun-grabber, by the way) grew up fine without the example of a substance-abusing dysfunctional, violent creep to imprint off of. And I’ll not be lectured on guns by a “prohibited person” whose out-of-control behavior with multiple criminal violations has disqualified him from owning them.

Speaking of which, if he really wants the state to go big on “gun control,” how about we start with him? If he is prohibited from even touching a gun, I’d be curious to see if the one he’s holding on that album cover is a real one or a prop. As such things are thoroughly accounted for by corporate records in order to comply with IRS filing requirements, there’s no doubt an “accounts payable” invoice from an armorer that could tell us if 18 U.S. Code § 922 requirements for “receiving a firearm in interstate or foreign commerce” have been observed.

Anything to try to be relevant and sell some albums.


Rap = Crap, not music.

Wild Bill

, Yep, just crap to separate the fools from their money.


His so called “music” is for others like him, those who cant sing, just talk fast… He seems to overlook that his hood rat rapping “followers” are probably 75%+ of those actually DOING the shooting.
STFU Enema, YOU produce the SHIT that instigates the shooting, you are NOT the cure…

Dr. Strangelove

As if many of his fans vote.

Wild Bill

@Strange, Thank God that they don’t!


I really do hate to say this but we really do need to pay a tiny bit of attention to these mental degenerates. Not that they have anything coherent to say but they do have an uninformed, uneducated and large fan base. Fail to counter this “message” and we shall see it in the streets at some point. But, as Alinsky tells us, hold the opposition to their own standards. If that gun is not a prop then clown boy needs to be doing time.


“Hi! My name is. Hi! My name Is! Hi! My name is Village Idiot!


This guy is obviously a scumbag, however, to use the term “prohibited person” is to accept the false premise of the legitimacy of a gun “law”. In truth, and according to our bill of rights and the intent of the framers, all gun laws are unconstitutional infringements. “no free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms” Thomas Jefferson….arms being “every terrible implement of the soldier” and our “birthright” given by God and not able to be prohibited by man. (short of incarceration). MAGA1776


Cant stand assinem, but you are absolutely correct! Not deemed mentally deficient or incarcerated and people should have ALL their rights, period!

Ansel Hazen

The part your missing Parker is that Enema isn’t a man so that douchbag quite rightly deserves to be on the prohibited list.


Another poster boy for ‘stupid’? I better read the article…
Ah, yup.


I never listened to Enema anyway.

jack mac

Enema may change his tune if he is incarcerated for holding that revolver.


Just another pathetic libtard entertainment prostitute.


That’s not music – it’s cRAP. And nobody cares what a whigger like him thinks about guns.

freedom isnt cheap

his name should be spelled: D-O-U-C-H-E,,,mUcH MORE appropriate


Wonder how much assinem got paid to push the game of Clue, “single white male shooter, on the 30-whatever floor hotel room, with a bumpstock” Vegas agenda? Col. Mustard with a candlestick is as logical as that hack job cover up attempt! Lmfao! And you’re a bit late at 3 years later, no? Just take another pill, wash it down with the vodka, and keep believing everything you’re told there big guy. No worries though, all your uber woke, talking-point-parroting sheep, suckling the teet of big government, will still heed your every shepherding command while fighting the “racist establishment“ by… Read more »

The other Jim

Never liked it from the beginning when I first hear Run DMC. I always thought it weird to talk your music; thought of them as failed singers. Is he failing, popularity falling and just trying to be noticed and gain back attention? If it doesn’t work I hope he doesn’t resort to stripping his clothes off like Madonna, or mouth kissing another man on stage.

Country Boy

Hmmm too bad M&M didn’t pull the trigger when making the photo for tis album.


Eminem and similar “artists” are, to put it mildly, perverse. It’s their right in our country to express themselves as they wish and for fans to fawn over them. But on the matter of gun rights for law-abiding Americans, we must NEVER compromise with them. Truth is: They have no respect for us, do not understand real America and wish to crush our freedoms.
