ErieDesire,


I think you maybe thinking OHIO, or as some call it 4 dead in OHIO. Written by David Crosby the same day it happened. Recorded the next day by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. Released two days later.

I believe that that song was written about the Kent State University in Ohio. The incident where National guardsmen were ordered to open fire on students protesting the Vietnam War. They actually killoed innocent civilians that day. It was a sad day for America.
It has nothing to do with guns or gun control.

Nevertheless, what we were pointing out to everyone is that the Cat's sig has NOTHING TO DO WITH GUN CONTROL!!!

Again -- Don't tease the cat, or he (like Israel ) has the right to defend himself, and we will end up with another winter of far-right vs. far-left political threads. I don't think I can go through that crap again.

I stand corrected.
Here is what I found on the meaning of this song:

"The band's only major hit was 1967's "For What It's Worth". The song remains one of the finest protest anthems of the 60s, and exemplified the phenomenon of the "right song at the right time'. Stills" plaintive yet wry and lethargic plea for tolerance was written after the police used heavy-handed methods to stop a demonstration outside a club, Pandora's Box, on Sunset Strip in 1966. They were protesting about the curfew times imposed. The chorus of "Stop children, what's that sound everybody look what's going down" became an anthem for west coast students in their protests against the government."

From VH-1's website.

Gun control will only take the guns from law biding citizens

The exact people who SHOULDN'T have them , still will

I kinda agree with Formula 31

Someone needs to start a poll on this subject. There are two current threads on this subject right now. I'm actually surprised at the fact that everyone is staying civil and curtious so far with their responses. Unusual for this kind of subject.
