The Lyrics

DO NOT laugh at this parody. It is not funny....it is not MEANT to be funny. It is a commentary on the sad state of affairs regarding guns and violence, particularly the recent shooting in Parkland, Florida. 17 more people died needlessly in addition to those from Sandy Hook, Las Vegas, Aurora and all the other massacres where gun-crazy maniacs shot innocent people with assault weapons that should be banned. These are military weapons that have no right being in the hands of civilians, much less crazy lunatics! You don't hunt with an AR-15....and if you claim you need one for "self-defense", how many enemies do you have???? This parody will be posted on every social media site pertaining to this issue. If it changes one mind, it will be worth it.
Hello Congress, you old fools
Another shooting in the schools
Because the money you've all been taking
stopped the laws you should have been making
And the reason that those kids got blown away?
the N.R.A.
They are the Hounds of Violence

In sympathy, we feel their pain
(While) on the streets they march for change
They want Congress to just pass a bill
I hope this doesn't end like Charlottesville
I'm afraid they're headed for a clash with the Neo-Con Right
In that fight.... you can count on violence

On that Las Vegas night, we saw
Three thousand people, maybe more
People running for their lives, screaming
People dying on the grass, bleeding
While Republi-cons... all offered "thoughts and prayers"
Not one dared.... challenge the Hounds of Violence

Here is something we've all known
Violence in our land has grown
You're so stupid that we can't teach you
You're so ignorant, we can't reach you
Empty words, like spent shell casings fell....
these senseless acts of violence

And the dues the members pay
To the evil N.R.A.
Fund the campaigns of the GOP
In the interest of the gun lobby
And the news screamed, "the blood of the students was splattered on the high school halls"
Bullets in walls.....put there by the Hounds.... of Violence
No comments allowed on this one. I don't care to see all the right-wing-nuts spewing their hateful garbage rhetoric. If this parody angers you because you're an NRA dude or a gun-nut, go shoot your dog. You'll feel a whole lot better afterward.
