07:22 am - What ABOUT the Guns?

Cheryl Wheeler is one of my favorite folkies. She's written two takes on modern American gun culture. The first was a tongue-in-cheek send-up of fear-driven paranoia. [Is there any other kind?]

As mass shootings became more and more a part of our daily lives, her tone changed and she wrote a song much closer to her heart. I can't say I agree with her 100%, but it's time for her views to be heard, considered, and discussed. We have to do SOMETHING; we need to at least begin a dialogue to find a better way.

Here are links to both of her songs on the subject:

Current Mood: Apprehensive
Current Music: Cheryl Wheeler: "If it Were Up to Me"
