Default OT: Guns

There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

I think it's time we stop, children what's that sound
Everybody look what's goin down

"For What It's worth" Steven Stills 1966

Catmando signature......


Guns don't kill PEOPLE kill.

Leave a gun on the table, does it jump up and shoot.

Ummmm. Have you heard this song. It has very little to do with guns.


To quote another on the board, "Please don't tease the cat."

It's a protest song from the mid 60's.

From Buffalo Springfield: For What it's Worth

There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware
I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
There's battle lines being drawn
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind
I think it's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
What a field-day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, hooray for our side
It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away
We better stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, now, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Hey, I think everybody should be armed, after the bloodbath ended, we'd be a lot more civil and kind to each other.

You can pry my guns from my cold dead hands...

The first major change Hitler made was to disarm all of the citizens...look where that led...

I'd rather be tried by 12 than carried by 6.

Ted Kennedy's car has killed more than all my guns combined.

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.
