It was over 100 years ago and stuff. Just like that pesky old Constitution!
Ah, the sanctimony! As Twitchy reported, this isn’t the first time Foster the People’s front man has taken to Twitter to preach. Earlier this year, he begged Obama to “fight NRA bullies.” As we mentioned then, this is quite ironic considering the fact that Foster the People were made famous by their debut single, which was about a sociopathic teen fantasizing about … a gun massacre.
He continues preaching.
Kind of like sticking your head in the sand and pretending that there is no evil? And that men, and women, use firearms to protect themselves from attackers? But, whatever! They can just ask their attacker to “evolve,” evidently.
Preaching after profiting off a song about a gun massacre fantasy. The song, by the way, has been kicked out of rotation on some radio stations.

And what about the utter hypocrisy?
@fosterthepeople Would you write a song about common sense?

Bingo. You want common sense? Then stop the sanctimonious feel-good nonsense not based in reality.
This Twitter user sums all such “arguments” up.
Let's have a rational discussion that's based solely on my emotional aversion to guns.
