This blog segment is about two things.
#1) Holding your hand and hopefully helping you discover a new song for your playlist each week.
#2) Seeing if we can’t keep it semi relevant to either what’s happened in the last week, or what’s about to happen in the next week…(let’s not be too sticky on that one).
Here we are in the wake of another mass shooting in the USA, and it’s tough to wrap our heads around the sheer amount of agony and pain that the family and friends of the victims in Florida are going through. As soon as you venture online or to any media outlet reporting about what happened, you’re going to start seeing people on either side of the fence using the tragedy for political and social gain, and arguments about gun control. Since I have nothing to gain from any aspect of murder (and I find it incredibly distasteful that somebody thinks they do), let me make my argument on gun control crystal clear by showing you a song written years ago by The Trews.
It’s quite simple really. When we have less access to guns, less people will die.
