It’s sung to Billy Joel’s “Only the Good Die Young.” It’s sure to be conservative classic that you’ll want to share with your friends and maybe some of your gun-foe, anti-Second Amendment frenemies.
“On December 16, satirist Dan Joseph released ‘The Gun Control Song,’ mocking President Obama’s habit of responding to high-profile shootings by calling for more gun control while “blood is still fresh on the ground.”
“Joseph uses the song to address Obama’s habit of politicizing tragedy — for the purposes of pushing gun control — by calling for gun controls that would not have stopped the shootings in the first place. He also points out the hypocrisy of using the behavior of criminals as a springboard for new laws on law-abiding citizens and points to the foolishness of pretending criminals — who already ignore gun control — could somehow be constrained by more of it.”
This is one of my favorite lines: “So go up to Chicago, stay there a bit, soon you’ll wish you had a concealed carry permit. Because the laws there ain’t worth a bucket of spit, but break into my house and you better run, cause I’m a good guy and I have a gun.”
Update: It seems that some people didn’t like the song and complained by using the old “copyright infringement” ploy and blocked the video after I posted it.
At this point in time, I found another link that’s operable:
