Prepare To Be Blown Away

Somebody’s got to say it. In America we glamorize guns. Don’t think so? It took all of ten minutes to come up with a long list of very famous musicians who have recorded classic songs about guns. We all love these artists, and potentially some of us love the songs, even  the groups themselves that put guns on a pedestal.

And then there is this huge avalanche of  screaming hypocrisy following tragedy whipped into frenzies by mainstream media pushing all the emotional buttons for social justice. For those who scream bloody murder about gun control. Shush your mouth. I mean it. You are as much a party to keeping the terror of gun culture alive as anyone involved in it.

As mentioned it took ten minutes to come up with this list that mentions guns in group names, song or album titles, or images for promotion.
