Gun Sense Song

Tune of You are my Sunshine (C/G)

Intro: C, G7, C
The other night, Dear
I read the paper
I saw the number of gun-caused deaths
It was depressing,
we can avoid it
if we take appropriate steps.

Assault-style weapons
are not for hunting,
their major purpose a shooting spree—
And if you want one
And not for killing
just ten rounds the limit should be!

The Constitution
protects our rights, Dear
and that means my rights as well as yours.
We have a right to
our public safety
to preserve our lives—for sure.
