Snoop Lion might not be the first person you would imagine fighting gun laws, but he is fed up with the current state of affairs and making his views very clear. The rapper, who recently released his positive Major Lazer-produced jam "No Guns Allowed" sat down with Huffington Post Live to elaborate on that song's meaning.

"Politicians, y'all gotta pay attention. In this world that we are living in it is so easy to get your hands on guns, you gotta put some restrictions on that because I can go outside right now and buy a gun. You should really think about it before it hits home and one of your family members or it hits you.

The rest of the interview includes Snoop speaking about his new film and reggae-filled album, both titled Reincarnated. Watch the full clip below.
