Eminem (yes, this Eminem, and, also, this Eminem) was just quoted by the Guardian as recently rapping the following lyrics: 
This whole country is going nuts, and the NRA is in our way
They’re responsible for this whole production
They hold the strings, they control the puppet
And they threaten to take donor bucks
So they know the government won’t do nothing and no one’s budging
Gun owners clutching their loaded weapons
They love their guns more than our children
This is interesting to me because I also recall some other Eminem lyrics from the Chronic 2001 album:
Eminem: I mean it dawg, you ever need somebody offed whose throat is it? 
Dr. Dre: Well if you ever kill that Kim bitch, I'll show you where the ocean is.
Eminem: Well that's cool, and I appreciate the offer
But if I do decide to really murder my daughter's momma
I'ma sit her up in the front seat and put sunglasses on her
And cruise around wit her for seven hours through California
And have her wavin at people (Hi!) Then drop her off on the corner
at the police station and drive off honkin the horn for her
Raw dawg, get your arm gnawed off
Drop the sawed off and beat you wit the piece it was sawed off of
Fuck blood, I wanna see some lungs coughed up
Get shot up in the hot tub til the bubbles pop up
and they nose and cough snot up, mucus in hot water
There would appear to be some inconsistency in Eminem's approach toward the ownership and use of firearms. You cannot publicly threaten to use a firearm to graphically murder and desecrate the corpse of your child's mother, and then claim to love children more than a gun rights advocacy group.

If Mr. Eminem feels that the NRA is in his way, that is absolutely true. The NRA, GOA, SAF, and countless other gun rights advocacy groups exist in large part to promote the ability of innocent, law abiding people (e.g. "that Kim bitch") to defend themselves from the type of brutal, premeditated murder and victimization that Eminem himself advocates in his music.

If Eminem loves children so much, one wonders when he might release a song with similar lyrics about Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers. I'll be waiting for that day on the edge of my seat.
