Watch Killer Mike Voice His Support for Gun Ownership in New NRA Video

He said his interview in support of black gun ownership, filmed a week before the march, "should never have been used to contrast to your march, and I think it's wrong".

Rapper Killer Mike apologized for the way the National Rifle Association twisted an interview with him to make it appear he opposed the weekend March for Our Lives demonstrations against gun violence.

While Mike has since issued an apology and explanation, Run The Jewels are more than a creative collaboration - there is genuine friendship there.

It's also a meaningful number to the NRA itself, as it has repeatedly encouraged its supporters to not only follow the official NRA account, but also its allies on both Twitter and Facebook.

He also apologized to the young people behind the movement. He continued to say that despite "stumbles" or "bad decisions'" or having messages misinterpreted, that "I cannot and will not ever turn my back on this man".

"We're raising a generation of kids where everyone gets a trophy", he said. In the video, Mike talks about what it means to be a black gun owner and why he is encouraging his daughter to learn how to use a gun.

Killer Mike's bandmate El-P released a lengthy statement late Sunday in support of his partner. We need a relentless, powerful collective vision and voice joining with young people who are unafraid to lead the way.

"All those people [who] made up that march, I am a friend and advocate to you all", Bender said in the first of two short videos. "That interview was used a week later to disparage a very noble campaign that I actually support ..."

Mike later said in a statement the interview was meant to support black gun ownership, not be "a weapon" against the marches, which he also supported.

NRATV opens the video with host Colion Noir asking a rhetorical question to protesters: "What are you really marching for?"

After calling it a "carnival of a march", Noir said people should donate to get armed guards at the school.

Others were more critical of the fact that he chose to air his views through the NRA.

In the earlier interview, Killer Mike said that he forbid his kids from participating in National Walkout Day because they are a gun-owning family that supports the Second Amendment. People like @KillerMike speaking out have completely different reasons to own guns than others will.
