Eminem says that NRA loves guns “more than our children.”
In an epic performance at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, the hip-hop artist rapped, “This whole country is going nuts and the NRA is in our way. They hold the strings, they control the puppet.”
The performance was introduced by Alex Moscou, a Parkland shooting survivor who stated, “We’re tired of hearing politicians send their thoughts and prayers to us and doing nothing to make necessary changes to prevent this tragedy from happening again. School is a place where we should feel safe, and if those elected to represent us won’t do what’s right to keep us safe, then we’re gonna be too loud for them to ignore.”
The Parkland shooting reignited the gun reform debate after 17 people were killed when a gunman opening fire inside a Florida school on February 14.
Later in the performance, Eminem chanted, “So they know the government won’t do nothing and no one’s budging. Gun owners clutching their loaded weapons. They love their guns more than our children.”
Survivors have criticized the NRA and the Trump Administration for inaction. They’ve also continued to push for change via rallies, public appearances and the upcoming March for Life event.
