The video above re: a Louisiana rapper’s gun bust comes at the story from a fundamentalist Christian perspective. Some may consider the rant racist — which would only prove Mr. Dice’s analysis. Anyway, we turn to foxnews.com for a more journalistic angle.
A former “Sons of Guns” reality TV star did a double-take last month when he clicked on a link that said, “Rapper Threatens Trump” and instantly recognized his distinctively customized firearms being waved around by a local wannabe.
“As I’m watching it, I’m thinking these guns are very recognizable,” Joe Meaux,whose Baton Rouge store, Meaux Guns and Ammo, was burglarized in July, 2015. “As I watched more, I realized that they were very familiar. They were stolen from me last year.”
By the time Meaux called police, he said local authorities and the Secret Service were already aware of the Instagram video featuring Demarcus Davis, 22, a local rapper who goes by “Maine Musik.” While they may not have known the guns were stolen, the federal agency takes any threat to a presidential candidate very seriously.
I have a hard time taking any of this very seriously. Mr. Musik seems about as likely to wage war on Donald Trump as Barbados.
Strangely, though, the same YouTube that took down Ammoland’s criticism of Katie Couric’s anti-gun agitprop documentary Under the Gun, hasn’t removed Mr. Musik’s misegos. Not that they should.
