"Why, NRA?"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

The NRA has many sane, rational members. The group’s “leadership,” on the other hand. . . .
Young men shooting innocents down,
psycho young men in many U.S. towns,
well armed young men popping off many rounds.
Certain creeps are not unhappy

Young men who want guns can just go
buy them at an unregulated show.
Legislators, clearly out of their mind,
are in bed with NRA slime.

Post-Newtown one must say,
Why NRA are you led by such sick guys, NRA?
They help keep their whores in Washington employed. . .
Louis Gohmert, with cranial void.

It’s evil thugs run the vile NRA.
Industry whore is the style NRA.
NRA’s hands aren’t clean, total bullshit the spiel;
not an ounce of pain do they feel—
their goal: increase gun-makers weal.

Young men with psycho histories
can go get guns legally and with ease,
then these young men can fulfill their crazed dreams
to go and perform mass shootings.

Those men can’t do it by themselves;
they get help from troll legislative elves
who get down on their knees nearly each day
and blow those who run NRA.

When they’ve thus sucked off the vile NRA
leaders, then buns-defile by NRA.
They bend any time so Wayne L. can enjoy
the bums of bums in his employ.

When they’re told to jump by vile NRA,
their quick response is “How high NRA”?!
Likewise their hands aren’t clean, total bullshit their spiel;
not an ounce of pain do they feel—
their goal: increase gun-makers weal.

Young men put on their combat boots
and get ready to do multiple shoots.
Many people then no longer alive. . .
next the Second Amendment jive.

When will the next mass murder be
by some young man who got guns legally?
And they won’t care at the vile NRA,
an accessory to each slay.

But they’ll never change their style, NRA;
it’s run by a steaming pile, NRA.
Young troubled men will keep on shooting down
young, old then load more bloated clips of rounds.

The NRA is about 2% of American gun owners. The only way to accomplish the goal of disarming the American public is to send equally psychopathic, brainwashed young men with heavy armament into peoples homes and shoot them if they move. The only difference between an ATF agent and the mall gunman is the source of his paycheck. Both will kill because the "voices" told him to. Every law, and every tax is backed by men with guns, and when you advocate for a law, you are advocating for violence, because that is ultimately the means of its enforcement. Well done song, by the way.

Extremely well-written, with skilful subs, great pacing and and biting satire - definitely worth a 555. I must admit I wonder how this thing with the gun laws is going to play out in the US; here in the UK we've had tight gun restriction laws ever since the Hungerford massacre, but even our laws aren't watertight - as the Raoul Moat incident proved.

Both sides have valid complaints but this is a ntion with a history of guns and no way any true American is gonna give them up to allow criminals to possess them and threaten their lives be in in their homes or out at a theater, mall, restaurant, etc... The Left has a point about the types of weapons beign purchased b/c they are NOT part of the US gun history but are German war amrms since the late 1900s (auto-pistol, double-action auto pistol, true SMG,a nd true assault rifle... one could even could Anti-Material weapons in .50 cal as the Germans had those as ATWs). US gun history is Civil War and Colt western revolvers, lever-action carbines, the US M1911A-1, the Thompson, The Garand and M-1 carbines, Remington and Mossberg shotguns. All the types that mass-murder are of German origin from Second and Third Reichs. OTOH, Americans have a fundamental right to bear arms and as tech has changed along with threats those German types are needed to fend off attackers. Finally, these massacres all share something in common- mental illness and THAT is what needs to be examined. Existing guns laws only need to be enforced properly, but even the US Govt. has f*cked up will illegal guns sales many times over. A complicated issue, no REP is gonna support any gun restriction or banning laws. We have millions of guns but only periodic massacres by individuals that had no criminal history and were mentally ill- so restricting types of assault weapons which technicallya re just sporting arms in semi-auto doesn't make much sense. Fully-automatic firearms are already illegal... so WTF???

JAB - There is much to admire about you...your talent, your insane productivity, your scholarship, your skill with the language (languages), etc. What I like best is that, even though our political views are often opposite, you are a gentleman first and foremost.'ll never make it as a one bomber. I never ;D

***** (5 STARS). Perfect. You said it all and at the same time you may have inadvertenly made another point. My military service more than says that guns are TOOLS, not TOYS. I'm extremely sick + tired of loudmouth demogogues like Wayne L. saying "Boo" and spreading lies and the sheep tremble and then any irresponsible hothead dipsh*t can get any kind of weapon, carry it on them anywhere - even into bars. Yeah, drink too much pony pee, you lookin' at my girl, I don' like you, I got an honor to pertekt - BANG! BANG! 4 years ago Wayne L spread fear again by tossing out the tired rumor that now it's Obama who was going to take away ALL firearms in America. In Pittsburgh some assailant quoted that lie before he shot 4 Pittsburgh cops to death and then he killed himself. Wayne L. could've made a statement on that. He could've condemned the murder-suicide, could've taken responsibility for the tragedy his lie led to, could've said that he and the NRA do not stand for such senseless actions. Did he? NO! He just sat at his desk in his suit + tie, hair greased back with VO5, John Lennon glasses on, a stupid smirk on his face. He probably gets his rox-off on this. He has blood on his hands, $ is his god. I have nothing particular against the NRA itself. We have a right to own weapons but it comes with a big responsibility and that requires maturity. The NRA has been hijacked. It needs to return to its original principals and its original mandate, and the first step should be to kick out that manipulative Robiesperre motormouth MF Wayne L. out - all the way out! He should go to jail, directly to jail. Do not pass GO, do not collect $200. BTW, your parody is the best and the most true-to-life I've read in a long time. 5 STARS!

Courageous stuff, JB! Regardless of one's point of view on gun control, you went there knowing there are many AIR regulars who would vehemently disagree with your message here. I admire people who express unpopular but sincere opinions in the face of formidable opposition. As for my own stance, I have strong views but I'm just not taking the bait, unless direct provocation forces me to that. It's probably not hard to work out which side of the fence I'm on.

I'd rather have fun making light, entertaining parodies than using them as a platform for polarizing political issues. In fact, I've held back on blasphemous themes, because they seem to piss people off. Still, it's all valid dialogue and this is one of the few sites where a tolerant, informed debate can take place. I have no objection to it, but count me out.

Newtown was a tragedy but did any LAW stopo the shooter? I no longer belong to the NRA but Amendment 1 & 2 are the backbone of the U.S. Constitution and if either of them are damaged, the rest of the Constitution becomes meaningless. Don't count on the police to protect your life because laws have NO effect on the lawless and making more stupid laws will only hurt the (majority) of firearms owners who abide by the law. Firearms registration should be made illegal until the criminals register theirs and this should include automatic weapons. Criminals don't fear the police; they fear armed citizens with CCWs. The school was cvhosen because the shooter KNEW that there would be no one tere to stop him. It kind of makes you think for a moment, doesn't it? Gun Control - A two handed grip Handgun Inc. - Totally Out of Control

JAB, despite my long comment above (with 6 spelling mistakes), FWIW, I still gave you 555!!!

To me, most of our nations ( probably the worlds) problems stems from the idea (and observation) that that the government is lying and two faced.,They think they have the right to take away your rights too..They have been off the page for decades lately, along with their judges ..thats why we're in this stinkhole...All by design no doubt......Maybe the worst is yet to come, and if you get in their way, you're it repeats itself'll get screwed over and over again..(just ask any natives).and there ain't a damn thing you can do about it either (or can you? )...ahhh , but who am I to complain....they won't listen anyway....but that's ok, all species of man learns the hard way.........have a good day

You know, it's a sad day when gun-grabbing leftards are so obviously idiotic and insane that even the certifiably insane conspiracy theorist 9/11-troofer Nazi nutjob Alex Jones manages to eat their lunch on their own TV station. Spewing hate speech and death threats against the NRA, which is THE absolutely best-equipped patriotic organization to eliminate anyone who threatens it, puts you on the same level as a raving lunatic who has to be kept strapped to a bed at all times because even a padded cell can't keep him from hurting himself.

Gun control freaks like the fascist who wrote this crap are to blame for EVERY shooting in which the victims were insufficiently armed to shoot back. First thing we patriots must do once we take this country back from this criminal totalitarian regime currently illegally occupying the White House is have it and all the other traitors against the 2nd Amendment executed via firing squad and ground up for dog food as an example to other Stalin-and-Hitler wannabes.

So today you're pretending to care about children again? This from the political faction that brought us dozens of dead children in drone strikes on Pakistan, and uncounted thousands of guns smuggled to vicious drug gangs (which run very lucrative child prostitution rackets on the side) in Mexico via the illegal Fast & Furious program? I guess when it's foreign little brown-skinned kids who're raped and murdered due to your transparent false-flag operations, you racists just don't give a hoot, do you?

education spending goes up constantly, kids are dumber each year, and they are meaner. schools and parents are the problem, not a gun. i have never shot anyone with my guns. anyone reading this over the age 50 would never even think of grabbing a gun and killing innocent people as a teen. it's the schools and bad parenting but government is in control of both of them so you can expect it to be bad and costly. congrats big government fans
