    Rapper Cardi B has been showing an increasing interest in politics of late, floating the idea of becoming a politician in a series of tweets on Sunday, 12 January.

    Rapper celebrity Cardi B, who recently expressed her interest in running for Congress, has proposed a solution to the heated gun debate. Guns “can also get prohibited like the time alcohol was,” said the rapper, adding:

    “But guess what… It was allow[ed] again with regulations and strict rules and now people drink responsibly.”

    Cardi B, recognized by Forbes as one of the most influential female rappers of all time, made the remarks after a Twitter user pointed out to her that bearing arms was a protected constitutional right, as is free speech under the First Amendment.

    ​The discussion about the gun issue emerged on Cardi B’s Twitter feed after the rapper voiced a desire to open up political discussions with conservatives “unless you racist.”

    ​On Tuesday, 14 January, Cardi B had posted on Twitter:

    “Listen, I do believe we have the right to bare arms… However I do believe in order to get a gun we should get mental check ups, proper training and [an] older age limit to own one. If the proper age limit to drinking is 21 because these kids can’t handle their liquor how can they possibly get the responsibility to own a gun? …..is that fair?”

    ​Netizens responded to Cardi B’s tweet on the gun problem solution by pointing out that the rapper was probably confused about the Second Amendment, hence her suggestion to treat it like alcohol.

    ​Others were puzzled as to what made Cardi B think people today “drink responsibly.”

    ​Some comments on social media referenced the rapper’s recently voiced interest in entering politics.

    ​Others wholeheartedly approved and applauded the rapper celebrity’s stance.

    ​The news came as just recently the rapper announced that she might like to give politics a shot, after a “couple more years at school”.

    “I think I want to be a politician. I really love government even [though] I don’t agree with Goverment [sic],” she wrote via Twitter.

    ​She subsequently added:

    “I do feel like if I go back to school and focus up I can be part of Congress. I deada** have sooo much [sic] ideas that make sense. I just need a couple of years of school and I can shake the table.”

    The rapper, who once openly admitted to drugging and robbing men she lured into hotel rooms by promising them sex, has been mulling politics as she faced up to four years behind bars in connection with a 2018 strip club brawl.

    “I had to go strip, I had to go, “Oh yeah, you want to f*** me?” “Yeah, yeah, yeah, let’s go back to this hotel,” and I drugged n****s up, and I robbed them. That’s what I used to do,” Cardi B said in a video that surfaced in 2018.

    The rapper issued the following statement in the wake of the controversy:

    “All I can do now is be a better me for myself my family and my future.”
