Chris Rock ‘You Should Need to have a Mortgage to buy a Gun’

Violence was raised during the Wednesday TCA panel for the weekly FX late-night talk show Totally Biased With W. Kamau Bell, as it has been during every panel of TCA thus far.

Chris Rock in Head of StateExec producer Chris Rock has famously riffed on gun control in his own stand-up comedy act, ranting that there should be no restriction on guns, but bullets ought to cost $5,000 apiece.

“The gun lobby also says people need to be able to protect their property,” Rock said, “but every mass shooting is done by guys who live with their mother. So I believe you should need to have a mortgage to buy a gun. A mortgage is a real background check. Even if you go to jail for 30 years, you’ve still got to pay your f***ing mortgage.”

Rock was asked if he’d maybe like to get back into the talk show game himself. “Well, a part of me would want to do it,” he said. “I just don’t know if I could do it all the time. Michael Jordan could play one game and score 50, but he couldn’t do it the next night. I just don’t care about Lindsay Lohan. Maybe if this show is successful, I can be like Barbara Walters on The View and just step up and be funny and then leave.” And if Rock were to do his own scripted comedy series, he would want the same do-everything-yourself model that Louis C.K. has at FX. “I’d want nothing less than that,” he said.

  1. Chris Rock IS AN Afrocentric black man; AND, HE UNDERSTANDS CAUCASIANS ARE THE ONES WHO PURCHASE TICKETS FOR HIS COMEDY-ACT. [Blacks stay home and watch him on, Home Box Office]. LIKE THE BEST COMEDIAN OF ALL TIME – Richard Pryor – NEGRO COMEDIANS MUST PLEASE THEIR CAUCASIAN AUDIENCES.

    IF BULLETS COST “$5000 apiece,” Mr. Rock KNOWS HIS black brothers WILL BE READY FOR “ALL-OUT” WARFARE – CAUCASIANS ARE NOT READY FOR A RACE WAR. [The “white” plan is to let blacks and Hispanics tear each other apart, first].

  2. […]  Rock kept his Wednesday remarks brief, he has often incorporated gun control into his comedy routines or made public statements like “you should have to own a home to own a gun.” […]
