Only PRO-RKBA song I can think of in rock: "1976", by Grand Funk Railroad (sample lyric: "Don't let them take your gun, in 1976") Are there any other pro-RKBA songs in rock at all, other than from Ted Nugent and GFR?

"Don't Take Your Gun's to Town" J.C. "Big Iron"-Marty Robbins "Saturday Night Special"-Lynard Skynard "Bad Habit"-Offspring "The Trooper"-Iron Maiden "Vote With A Bullet"-Corrosion of Conformity "Battle of New Orleans" & "Sink the Bismark"-Johnny Horton " Someone told me once that there's a right and wrong. Punishment was sure for those who dare to cross the line. Maybe it's just bullshit and I should play GOD and shoot you myself." Maynard James Keenan of Tool.

I always thought that was an anti-gun song. Listen to the lyrics: 'Handguns are made for killin', ain't no good for nothing else' And then says something about throwing them in the sea. I think that 'Rock the Casbah' is an appropriate song these days.

"Interstate" by The Refreshments.
Well it doesn't matter There aint no facts involved Take it further It doesn't matter Well out here on the border Ants drag bones across the hot dry ground Told me there at the trailer park They got a million souls at the lost and found Well you should have known better Dead thoughts and lost horizons And to take it further It don't get any better Well out here on the border Ain't nobody asking questions No I don't need a miracle But I could use a push in the right direction Handgun and a bottle of Boons And a 69' Ford and a new pair of shoes Left from Boise Idaho 95 So when they crossed the state line They were just in time to fall Asleep at the wheel Last back doesn't matter Never was no facts involved And to take it further It never really matters Well out here on the border Ants drag bones across the hot dry ground Told me there at the trailer park They got a million souls at the lost and found Handgun and a bottle of Boons And a 69' Ford and a new pair of shoes Left from Boise Idaho 95 So I was just in time to miss The 5:00 o'clock news Velvet black Interstate is something that appeals to me $5.99 and a stone cold meal I was feelin' just fine And when I crossed the state line I was just in time To fall asleep at the wheel

The Refreshments also sang "Banditos." It was a popular little ditty in the mid '90's.
Just how far down do you want to go We can talk it out over a cup of joe And you can look deep in my eyes Like I was a super-model Uh huh It's just you and me baby No one else we can trust We'll say nuthin to no one No how or we'll bust Never crack a smile or flinch or cry For nobody Uh huh So give your ID card to the border guard Your alias says you Captain Jean Luc Picard Of the United Federation of Planets Cause they won't speak english any ways Everybody knows that the world is full of stupid people So meet me at the mission at midnight We'll divy up there Everybody knows that the world is full of stupid people So I got the pistol So I get the Pesos That seems fair We'll put the sugar in the tank of the sheriff's car Slash the deputy's tires They won't get very far When they finally get the word that there's been a hold-up Uh huh Everybody knows that the world is full of stupid people So meet me at the mission at midnight We'll divy up there Everybody knows that the world is full of stupid people So I got the pistol So I get the Pesos That seems fair That seems fair

Or, on their last album was Sin Nombre, one of my favorites:
Road hard and I put up wet, been down but I can't get up yet It's a long ride back to the way I want to feel Sun down across the plain, I've bee sore before I'll be sore again No place to hide to keep from runnin' Laid down in the cotton wood hollow though I left a trail that no man could follow, Is it safe to rest my head again till morning Cracked throat, my canteen's dry Rain won't fall from an empty sky, so I whisper Hail Marys till the sun comes up Now don't tell me that part of the story when the cowboy falls in love When he traded in his pistol and his saddle and the stars above When the candles burnin' down, when midnight comes around Know the best that we could hope for is to be laughin' when we finally hit the ground Road hard come down tired, stripped from the saddle when the rifle fired, Deep in dreams of women and clean water Well I did before what I'll do again So forgive me father if I have sinned, but the old wood cracks before it bends Now don't tell me that part of the story when the cowboy falls in love When he traded in his pistol and his saddle and the stars above When the candles burnin' down, when midnight comes around Know the best that we could hope for is to be laughin' when we finally hit the ground Now don't tell me that part of the story when the cowboy falls in love When he traded in his pistol and his saddle and the stars above When the candles burnin' down, when midnight comes around Know the best that we could hope for is to be laughin' When we finally hit the ground

The Refreshments are from Tempe, Arizona. Kind of a down on their luck country rock band. Banditos was their big hit. Do a search on them and you'll find the unofficial pages and the music. They broke up and reformed because one of their members was in and out of rehab for booze and drugs. Guess what their new name is? THE PEACEMAKERS They have a unofficial pages as well. I don't believe they've put out an album yet, but I've heard some of their songs when Napster was still up. Good music. Lemme know if anyone finds out that they have a disc coming out. And I'd also like to know where to go for music (I wouldn't even mind paying a few bucks for each song I download, if I get my pick) now that Napster is dead. Or is it? I haven't been there in a while....

Lets not forget Mr. Ted Nudgent, anything he sings reminds me of guns. We all know where he stands.[kill]

Slayer's "Point" Mucho good hardcore rock and roll..... POINT I'm the one that brings you war Infiltrate unguarded shores Master of afflicting pain Point is where all die Lead - King I'm the one to taste your blood Trashing through the crimson mud Messenger of all demise Point is where I reign Piercing, impaling, no judgment, just punishment Discreate, annihilate assault with no regret I'm the one to taste your death Basking in your dying breath Messenger of all demise Point is where all die Piercing, impaling no judgment, just punishment Discreate, annihilate assault with no regret Born to kill sweep and clear Staring down the face of fear Shrapnel flies dehumanize Flesh and blood will fertilize Empty all the magazines Lethal burst from M-16's Pace the march and sing the song Right the fuck where I belong Stained in blood No fear - no sound Penetrate your holy ground Leave you where your comrades lie Point is where all die Pure destruction has begun Fearlessly the battle's won Spread extinction through the dawn Signature of wrath is spawned Minister of death unleashed My lust for war will never cease With no remorse I watch you die Body count's the bottom line Crashing slashing to the end Your final pulse has just been spent Leave you where your comrades lie Point is where all fucking die Lead - Hanneman Crashing slashing to the end Your final pulse has just been spent Leave you where your comrades lie Stained in blood No fear - no pain - no life Lead - King Clouded skies rain only death Silence all opposing threats Quench the hunger of my gun Exploding cities overrun I'm the one to taste your death Basking in your dying breath Messenger of all demise Point is where all die

They have 2 records out, one studio, one live, and they're wroking on a new studio one due out "sometime soon". Their official site is [url]http://www.azpeacemakers.com[/url]. I saw 'em back in August, and they put on a killer show, even played a bunch of old Refreshments songs. AR

The Refreshments were a great band, too bad the guitar player is/was too drugged out to go on. He was a great player too. OK for those of you who can stand rap, "No Holds Barred" by Sir Mixalot has gotta be the most RKBA song around.

Warren Zevon wrote it and sang it, but it's been covered by a lot of people, Rick Derringer, for one. Derringer? Gun? Oh, lawdy.... :^)
