Chris Rock on Guns: "A mortgage is a real background check."

Chris Brown has weighed in on the control debate that has dominated America for the past month. Yes, the comedian who's routine once stated that guns should be made available to anyone, but that bullets should cost $5,000 a pop, has updated his stance, but it's just as ridiculous. 

"The gun lobby... says people need to be able to protect their property, 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," is what Brown thinks. Of course, we should take everything Rock says with a pinch, nay a dead sea of salt, as he's not shy of controversy. He did appear on the 'Demand a Plan' video which circulated recently. It featured a number of prominent celebrities, in black and white, solemnly naming places that had been locations of shootings, and demanding a plan. The video was later mocked by a cheeky editor who spliced in images and footage of most of the celebs features, holding, firing or trivialising gunplay in movies or TV. Whoops!

Rock's previous bit on guns read something like this: "You don't need no gun control, you know what you need? We need some bullet control. Men, we need to control the bullets, that's right. I think all bullets should cost five thousand dollars. Five thousand dollars per bullet. You know why? Cause if a bullet cost five thousand dollars there would be no more innocent bystanders."
