Chris Rock says President Obama is our ‘Boss’ and ‘Dad’ of country, we should support gun control

Actor and comedian Chris Rock called President Obama the “dad of the country” as he rallied on Capitol Hill to support the President’s call for new gun controls.

Chris Rock movie photo“I am just here to support the president of the United States,” said Rock.

“The President of the United States is, you know, our boss. But also, you know, the president and the first lady are kind of like the mom and the dad of the country. And when your dad says something, you listen. [And] when you don’t, it usually bites you in the [expletive] later on. So I’m here to support the president.”

 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.”

“The gun lobby also says people need to be able to protect their property,” Mr. Rock said last month, according to deadline.com, “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 [expletive] mortgage.”
