“Don’t Let’em Take Your Gun”



Firearms News editor, Vincent DeNiro, proclaims “[My Daddy Told Me Son,] Don’t Let’em Take Your Gun” as the official song of Firearms News Magazine and the most Pro-2nd Amendment song EVER!

With all that is going on in the media in regard to our 2nd Amendment, I felt that it would be a good time to remind gun owners that this God-given, government recognized, right was placed in our Bill of Rights so that you have the ability to defend yourself against tyranny and genocide.

With the song title of Don’t Let’em Take Your Gun and lyrics like: “So, if you want your freedom son, don’t want your country to be overrun, you got to keep America number one, my daddy told me son, don’t let’em take your gun,” “They’re takin’ your Bill of Rights away from you,” “We’re willing to die for freedom,” and “Won’t be nobody takin’ over our land if everybody’s brother’s got a gun in his hand,” this really should be the anthem of all pro-Second Amendment organizations across the United States.

Performed by the legendary rock band Grand Funk Railroad and produced by Frank Zappa, this song appeared on the Good Singin’, Good Playin’ album in the Bi-Centennial year of 1976. I remember that year very well – red, white and blue were everywhere, and there were a ton of TV shows, commercials, consumer products, books, coins, stamps, etc. with “The Spirit of 1776” themes. The song is sung by Mark Farner, the lead singer of Grand Funk Railroad (GFR). Farner is VERY patriotic about gun rights. I saw Grand Funk Railroad in 1996, and even though my friends and I were screaming for them to play this pro-gun song, they never did. GFR put on a great show anyway.

As stated above, Frank Zappa produced this album (for those of you under 45, look him up.) So, what was his stance on the Second Amendment? Mark Farner told me that it was he who got Frank Zappa into shooting and that Zappa had a great time shooting bottles with Mark’s handgun the first time they shot together. Also, Zappa was very vocal about the loss of individual rights and freedoms and became an NRA member thanks to Farner. However, his children, Dweezil and Moon Zappa, have been outspoken anti-gun activists.

Be sure to listen to the song, and if you cherish the Second Amendment, you just can’t help but get goose bumps! It’s a real shame that with over 90 million gun owners out there, and with the millions of songs produced, that there is only this “modern day” song to get us fired up about one of our rights. There may be a few more songs out there, but this one has to be the best. “Won’t be nobody takin’ over our land if everybody’s brother’s got a gun in his hand.” Hear that loud & clear China, Russia, North Korea, and ISIS? So, when some liberal asks you why you support the 2nd Amendment, give him this lyric; “You got to understand. We are American men!”

Don’t Let ’em Take Your Gun – Grand Funk Railroad

Ohhh, people why don’t you come in here and let me talk to you a while.

That’s right, step right up and listen to a concerned citizen speak his piece.

I’ll tell you a little something that my daddy told to me,

My basic fundamentals if you want to be free.

Cause son, there’s something wrong internally.

So, if you want your freedom son,

Don’t want your country to be overrun,

You got to keep America number-one.


My daddy told me son, don’t let ’em take your gun!

That’s what they tryin’ to do.

Son, don’t let ’em take your gun.

They’re takin’ your Bill of Rights away from you.

My daddy said son, don’t let ’em take your gun!

That’s what they tryin’ to do.

Son, don’t let ’em take your gun.

Don’t let ’em take your gun away from you.

Ohhh, this year is our anniversary.

Two hundred years, people we’ve been free.

Won’t be nobody takin’ over our land,

If everybody’s brother’s got a gun in his hand.

I’m tellin’ you we learned to fight for justice.

We’re willing to die for freedom.

Hand in hand.

You got to understand.

We are American men.

Said they want your gun.

Said they want your gun.

Send ’em on the run.

Send ’em on the run.

This one ain’t for Fun for fun.

This one ain’t for Fun for fun.

If they do were done.

If they do were done.

  1. We all have to understand, those who want to take our guns don’t have the moxie to do it themselves…Even if they somehow were able to recruit enough Communist politicians to try and take them, all they would end up doing is starting a Civil War where they themselves would become prime targets….

  2. “Those who have seen war, will all ways see war.” Heard it once, may well have quoted it wrong, but having been in combat 68′ to 69′ I guarantee the statement as a personal fact for me. Many carry where I live, female and male. All who carry that I acquaint with never show, pull nor brag about it. we carry according to the states laws that provide. After seeing what combat can produce and being allowed under constitutional, state and city ordinances trying to reverse centuries as well as current events world-wide…..forfeiture of my weapons to any agency will not bode well.

  3. Who owns the media wanting to take the guns?
    A Jewish author tells the truth.

    Who runs Hollywood? C’mon

    ” I have never been so upset by a poll in my life. Only 22% of Americans now believe “the movie and television (TV) industries are pretty much run by Jews,” down from nearly 50% in 1964. The Anti-Defamation League, which released the poll results last month, sees in these numbers a victory against stereotyping. Actually, it just shows how dumb America has gotten. Jews totally run Hollywood.”

  4. The true agenda of the democrats is gun confiscation. Why? They are power hungry, they want complete control over us.
    To blame trump for this shooting only shows the ignorance of some people, when the FBI dropped the ball on investigating Cruz. The FBI could have prevented this evil act.
    Just like most liberals when it comes to gun control they lie and mislead. I have a letter from a senator from Australia that says America don’t let your government take your guns. Our gun confiscation of 1996 was a complete failure, crime went up by 60% because the criminals still have their guns and can buy all the guns they want on the black market. Just this week crime went up in the UK 25% same reason. Any country that strips their citizens from owning fire arms have complete control over them. Look at the countries that unarmed their citizens and how many of these citizens were murdered by their own government. Joseph Stalin in 1929 called for gun control, then murdered 5.4 MILLION people, Mao Zedong in 1935 called for gun control, then murdered 20 MILLION people, Adolf Hitler in 1938 called for gun control and murdered 13 MILLION people, Pol Pot in 1976 called for gun control, then murdered 2 MILLION people. Many say that can’t happen today but I differ I’m not willing to take that chance. When you have a party like the democrats who cater to illegal aliens and Muslim’s, and want to leave our borders open and let anyone into the country over their own citizens, That’s a party I could never trust. We have thousands of gun laws on the books and not one of these laws or any new law would have prevented the evil event in Florida or any other mass shooting. Gun free zones are nothing but advertizing to the criminal and sicko’s that they have no fear of retaliation. Chicago has the strictest gun laws in the country yet they are the murder capital of America. Law abiding citizens don’t ever let your guard down, that’s when you are most venerable. To all you democratic gun owners you best beware of who you vote for. What we need is for congress to strike down EVERY federal, state and local “law” INFRINGING on our 2nd Amendment RIGHTS.!

  6. History: Why didn’t the Japanese land troops in California in WW2. Because they were afraid of “An American with a gun behind every bush and tree”
    Who helped an unarmed England to keep the Germans from landing on their shores. It was the American people who sent guns of every kind to the English when they pleaded for them.
    Why aren’t our leftist educated kids being taught about these things in our schools. Because our
    schools have become tools of socialism and dictatorship.

  7. Already states are doing just that .Restrictions on certain types of guns and magazines, arbitrarily raising age limits on legal adults and confiscation without due process are the beginning of the end. While the 2nd amendment is still there it is weaker by the day. The pro firearm side is not organized or well financed and has no media in their corner unlike the gungrabbers. If the Dems win Congress it is all over.

  8. The lack of quality civics and history education, the deterioration of the family, the removal of shame
    and morality, the incessant attacks on Christianity and all the underpinnings of our past culture have been under perpetual assault by what political party? These aren’t random separate activities, but a decades long organized systematic agenda to reengineer our society into an uneducated, misguided, and docile society by the left’s machine. Some like to give them cover by eluding that they are just ignorant, but make no mistake, they know full well what they want and seek, and they ultimately know that the 2nd amendment is their biggest hurdle to overcome to accomplish it.
    Gun ownership lists and transfer data bases are an integral part of that agenda, they need to know who is armed and where they live. They like lists, so might I entertain that we gun owners should all be keeping lists now as well? Keep a list of every anti 2nd amendment politician. List every author in newsprint, every talking head on TV, and every Hollywood star that wish to disarm you and curtail your freedoms. Do some web searches and publicize their names and home addresses like they have done to firearms owners in the past. Familiarize yourself with these addresses and do some scouting just like you would for hunting any game. Good hunters know that scouting and preparation pays off before the season’s opening day arrives. Have a plan of action ready and keep your list handy at a moments notice on top of your ammo can!
    Good hunting!

    Protect it, For it protects you and your family.

    A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
