Tech N9ne Discusses Sandy Hook Shootings, Says

Tech N9ne weighs in on the recent shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.

This past December, tragedy struck when 20-year-old Adam Lanza shot and killed 26 people - 20 of whom were children - at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Now, in a recent interview with The Boombox, underground veteran Tech N9ne weighs in on the killings.

Tech believes that the biggest issue behind this tragedy is the absent parenting that allowed Lanza to gain access to deadly assault weapons. He also said that he feels that many commentators are relying on the topic of mental health to rationalize the tragedy, but ultimately, "it all starts at home."

"Discipline starts at home. If your mom has guns like that in the basement, what the fuck is your mom doing? Is she with the militia?" he said. "You know those are [Adam Lanza's] mom's guns right? I've got three [children]. I've got two 18-year-olds and I have a 13-year-old. When they were growing up I had them listening to Tech N9ne. I let them listen to Eminem. I talked to them about they problems at school, people, everything. Now, these kids being neglected. Why would Adam Lanza even know how to work these guns if his mom was paying attention?"

He added, "People want to use the psychotic card, or whatever, but I'm telling you it all starts at home. If there was respect at home, it will carry over. Where was Adam Lanza's momma?...Guns don't kill people. You know the saying - stupid people with guns kill people."

    The kid bought the guns on-line. The mother probably had no idea, which isn't all her fault. Lanza is mostly to blame cause well he committed the acts, and clearly had no remorse. That's good Tech talks to his kids, but letting them listen to rap songs with mixed messages isn't enough. All that teaches them is it's ok to have wild fantasies that then get passed off as entertainment.

    Thats what I've always said WHERE ARE THE FUCKING PARENTS IN THESE KID LIVES..... It's like the columbine shooting everyone blamed Marilyn Manson for "INFLUENCING" the teens to commit their crime because THE PARENTS didn't want to admit it was their fault they weren't around

      aaaand you clearly did not read the article...the whole time he stresses that its the parents fault, not music who influences them...if items of pop culture were the main source of influence amoung people that partake in mass shootings, then A LOT of books, movies, cd's, tv shows, and radio stations would all be banned and shut down

      you're a fucking idiot man i religiously listen to Tech N9ne and i aint shootin up people...take your dumbass opinion somewhere else

    He said "How would Adam Lanza know how to use those weapons if his mom was around." Simple. She took him to shooting ranges. She knew he was an awkward kid and she was worried about him. But she didn't think guns were harmful. She had guns for protection and they took her life. Shits stupid. No one needs assault rifles. You aint in the army. Our armies got drones thatll send a missle up your ass crack. Put the guns away.

      Yeah because he wouldn't have been able to do the same damage with a non "assault" weapon. It's not like the massacre at Virginia Tech was done with handguns or anything.
