Killer Mike is one celebrity not jumping on board with the March for Our Lives rally, explaining his stance in a new interview with NRA TV host and guns rights activist Colion Noir.

Throughout the six-minute video, the Run the Jewels rapper speaks out in support of gun ownership while also offering his own criticisms of the march and the recent nationwide walk-out.

"I told my kids on the school walkout: 'I love you—if you walk out that school, walk out my house…' We are not a family that jumps on every single thing an ally of ours does because some stuff we just don't agree with," Mike said, speaking on why he and his family didn't participate in any of the recent anti-gun violence protests or walk-out.

Elsewhere throughout the conversation, he speaks on anti-gun protesters, offering, "You're not woke! You can't continue to be the lackey. You're a lackey of the progressive movement, because you've never disagreed with the people who tell you what to do."

The rapper also explained his involvement with community meetings, adding, "If there is a table to be sat at, the gun owner needs to be there."
