One of the greatest of the British post-punk bands, Gang of Four, had a song about the Armalite rifle. Someone reminded me of it, in the wake of the awful news about Newtown, and the fact that the killer used an AR-15 Bushmaster to commit the massacre.
The song is posted below. I’m sharing it to commemorate a great band, and to protest a heinous crime against the humanity of us all.
