Don't Forget the Guns

A sarcastic song that was inspired by an article in the Feb 1989 issue of Time on Popular Assault Weapons. This was right after a man opened fire at an elementary playground with an assault rifle in Stockton, CA. The article claimed the typical American family was fairly well armed.

Cheryl then started thinking about her childhood, and the fact that they didn't have any guns in the family. She remembered a vacation they took where they went out west and saw all the tourist sites.

The two topics went together and merged into this song. The song portrays the NRA's version of a "typical American family" going on vacation.
