Melt the Guns

Fucking dog’s legs.

Watching the Harry Nilsson documentary, for the several timeth time; and it is completely awesome in a way that a retrospective of a completely awesome artist may only be…

but there is a portion, where the murder of John Lennon shows up, that is where I get a bit irate. after the tragedy, he pretty much completely devotes his life toward gun control.  And the people on the doc talk about how he wasted his talent in his anti-gun efforts.

fuck.  Waste your efforts in gun control?  That’s a pretty fucked up music-industry shit-head point of view.

Here is a person, whose best friend was shot down without reason, by a person who should not have been allowed access to a firearm.  And he spent the rest of his life working to prevent that kind of thing ever happening ever again.  And somehow, that is less meaningful than making pop songs?

Fuck That.  Melt the guns.

    Well, yes and no. A noble and worthwhile pursuit, all the more so because it mattered so much to him. But nonetheless wasted in the sense that we’ve got that stupid and incredibly dangerous constitutional amendment, which virtually NO other country would countenance, which DOES tend to make meaningful gun control impossible and therefore a waste of time. In austratlia it took a horrific crime to change public opinion. In theory that could happen here, but it’s difficult to imagine how huge and horrific the American version would have to be…

    I now have the XTC song playing on continual loop in my head. Thanks a lot you two.

  3. I didn’t play the XTC song so instead I ended up with ‘Born to be Wild’ – Fire all of the guns at once and explode into space…

    I still don’t get it. That amendment was written at a time when we did not have much military and may have needed help to defend the nation. Now we have plenty of military. We should get rid of the amendment. We’ve done it before. No alchohol? Times changed, we repealed it, Lets repeal the 2nd amendment. So simple.

    Crap. I clicked on the XTC video and heard the song. Now I need to listen to XTC for at least a week. It is in my BRAINZ!

Go ahead, tell me how I fucked up this time.
