A bunch of the Hollywood "superheroes" are kinda "light on their feet", anyway.

add LYNYRD SKYNRD to the list. guess i never really listened close enough to these lyrics.

"Saturday Night Special"

Two feets they come a creepin'
Like a black cat do
And two bodies are lyin' naked
Creeper think he got nothin' to lose
So he creeps into this house, yeah
And unlocks the door
And while a man reaching for his trousers
Shoots him full of .38 holes

[Chorus]
Its a Saturday night special
Got a barrel that's blue and cold
Ain't no good for nothin'
But put a man six feet in a hole

Big Jim's been drinkin' whiskey
And playing poker on a losin' night
Pretty soon, Big Jim starts a thinkin'
Somebody been cheatin' and lyin'
So Big Jim commences to fightin'
I wouldn't tell you no lie
And Big Jim done grab his pistol
Shot his friend right between the eyes

[Chorus]

Hand guns are made for killin'
Ain't no good for nothin' else
And if you like your whiskey
You might even shoot yourself
So why don't we dump 'em people
To the bottom of the sea
Before some fool come around here
Wanna shoot either you or me

Mine too. She's been coming around for twenty years. Don't expect too much from her and you might not be let down.

my wife supports gun rights in general, but she wants NOTHING to do with shooting guns. i am trying every angle.....so far, failure.

i even bought her a gun she liked, at her request.... and told her it won't get fired until she fires it. so far, it sits unfired.

Times (and the band) have changed since 1975:


Most of the guys in the band are very conservative, one or two are kinda "moderate," but none are "anti gun" as far as I know.

The actual "real" Southern Rock creators, The Allman Brothers Band though, are awash with anti-gunners, Butch Trucks being the farthest-left among them.

True story; If not for a self-inflicted bullet wound, Gregg Allman would've been drafted in 1969 shortly after the band formed. His Big Bro, Duane, threw a "Foot-Shootin' Party" the night before Gregg had to show up for his physical. Duane gave Gregg a wrapped present, which was a pair of moccasins with bull's eyes painted on the top of 'em, handed him his .22 revolver, and told him to put the moccasins on and take his pick of which foot to shoot, but he wasn't leavin' until he took the shot.

Gregg showed up to the physical still wearing the moccasins with a .22 caliber hole in the bull's eye of the right one, and with a pronounced limp.....and the stank of Jack Daniels oozing from his pores....and the right moccasin. LOL

Butch Trucks would likely not be a millionaire today if not for the intentional use of a gun at a Foot Shootin' Party at which he was present 45 years ago. He would have the 2nd Amendment repealed and all guns banned today if he could. If Duane were still alive, I do believe he'd kick his geezer-rocker butt and remind him from where he comes!

i dunno, those lyrics are hard to defend. i will always like some of their music, whether they made an anti-gun song or not.

the last stanza of that song is HARD to defend, it is basically saying get rid of handguns....how can that not be an anti-gun stance??????

if these guys were conservative/gun rights supporters....wouldn't someone have stood up and said...waitaminute!!!!

Did you listen to the song I posted the link to? Maybe that was one of the guys standing up and saying, "waitaminute!"

Ted Nugent once wrote a song called "My Big 10 Inch." Not every song is a true story, nor does every song represent the songwriter's personal thoughts or experiences.

If the guys were anti-gun, don't you think that song would be the theme-song of the Brady Bunch, or Moms Demand Action, or any number of other specifically gun-control organizations? How many requests to use that song do you think the copyright holder(s) have turned down because it is not indicative of his/their personal position(s)?

By the way, neither of the writers of that song are still in the band. Ronnie Van Zandt is deceased and Ed King hasn't been a member since 1996. Like I said, the band has changed. "...if these guys were conservative/gun rights supporters..." can be answered by searching for interviews on YouTube of Gary Rossington or Rickey Medlocke, both current members, and Gary is the sole surviving original member. They are decidedly not anti-gun and are outspoken conservatives. There ain't no "ifs" about it!

Here's a hint: Dickey Betts was not born in the back seat of a Greyhound bus rollin' down Hwy. 41. Capiche?

sometimes, we tend to overthink things or read more into some things than is really there.

sometimes, some things are simply entertainment, and not always a political message.

also people can change their viewpoints and opinions over the years based on personal experiances.

is there anyone here, who thinks or believes exactly the same as they did, say, ten years ago? or twenty years ago? or thirty years ago?

"God & Guns"

Last night I heard this politician
Talking 'bout his brand new mission
Liked his plans, but they came undone when he got around with God and guns

I don't know how he grew up
But it sure wasn't down at the hunting club
Cause if it was he'd understand a little bit more about the working man

God and guns
Keep us strong
That's what this country
Was founded on
Well we might aswell give up and run
If we let them take our God and guns

I'm here in my back of the woods
Where God is great and guns are good
You really can't know that much about 'm
If you think we're better off without 'm

Well there was a time we ain't forgot
You caressed all night with the doors unlocked
But there ain't nobody save no more
So you say your prayers and you thank the lord

For that peace maker
And the joy

God and guns (God and guns)
Keep us strong
That's what this country, lord
Was founded on
Well we might aswell give up and run,
If we let 'm take our God and guns.
Yea we might aswell give up and run,
If we let 'm take our God and guns!

Yeaaa
Ooh
God and guns

Don't let 'm take
Don't you let 'm take
Don't let 'm take
Our God and guns

Oh God and guns
Ye keep us strong
That's what this country, lord
Was founded on
Well we might aswell give up and run,
If we let 'm take our God and guns!

Wohoho
God and guns
Wohohoo
Ooh
