MURDER MURDER … EVERYWHERE
It’s back to grand old fashion times when sport
Was killing Indians and buffaloes
For land, for skins and naturally for God
(Our kind of God), Those were the glory days
When forty-fives were hallmarks of hot men
Who exercised those index fingers not
Their pecs and abs … OH HALLELUJAH DAYS!
It’s guns with AK47 rifle power
We use to squash a rabbit or a deer.
And don’t forget those 30 bullet clips
In pistols making massacres more fun.
It’s guns, guns, HALLELUJAH GUNS and the
Insanity that uses them to kill
That makes our TV shows enjoyable.

The logic behind having weapons like that escapes me. Well ... it isn't logic, is it? It's an atavistic, emotional response to fear, I suppose. If I have a more powerful weapon than anyone else does, that makes me the one with the power and the control, doesn't it? Well, doesn't it?

Ah...the right to bear arms! Such a misunderstood right to bear arms in times of potential occupation by foreign forces. Well, I suppose if you include multinational corporations as foreign forces occupying the USA then maybe there's some logic behind our cultural fascination with weaponry. Admittedly, there's an atavistic drive behind all of this. A well-crafted weapon does appeal to the wannabe-samurai in so many of us, but unlike real samurai, we don't quite understand the need to not use a weapon. We claim so much about ourselves and can support so little of it. I find that both disturbing, and far too telling in ways that leave me perpetually chilled.

When are you people going to understand that guns are not the problem, PEOPLE are the problem. If a psychopath decides he wants to kill, he will kill. If he drives his car down a busy sidewalk on a Saturday evening and mows down dozens of people will you all feel better about it because at least nobody got shot?
