    Not really a song about guns , but it does have lots of guns in the video.
    The last One Hundred Yards , by Brent Lindley is a good watch / listen.
    Not sure how to post videos sorry ...

    Original was probably inappropriate due to image.

    If you have a YouTube link, all you have to do is paste the URL into the text area and click on Post Reply. The site software will populate the video automatically. No need to type in text and create a hyperlink.

    I have a feeling this will become a long thread.

    I did so because the image was probably NSFW, but I just replaced it with a different video anyways.

    Since Bad Company was already mentioned and Five Finger Death Punch's version, while AMAZING, is a cover of the original...I'll go with a classic. Not all about guns, but but the best line in the song is (3:08)

    "Cops And Robbers"

    I was driving home on the Boulevard late one night
    When I spied a cat over at the corner
    Thumbin' all alone
    Now as I passed him by
    I heard him holler out "Hey!"
    I slowed down to see what he said
    He hollered, "Mmmmm, by any chance you goin' my way?"
    I said "Why sure, baby, hop in and gimme a cigarette."
    Just then he reached down in his pockets
    And that was the moment that I regret

    He hollered, "Reach for the sky!"
    I said, "But I don't understand you, sir."
    "Don't give me no monkey business,
    This is the stopper in my hand."

    Again, he says, "Uh, looky here,
    You see this here I got in my hand.
    This is a thirty-eight pistol
    Built on a forty-five frame,
    Shoots tombstone bullets
    And a ball and chain.

    He said "Now, I-I-I-I ain't tryin' to shake you up,
    But, b-b-b but I just want you to know
    If the cops start to crowd me in
    Then you gonna be the first to go.
    Now looky here, don't even look back.
    Just drive on just like nothing happenin'.
    That's when he said, that's when he told me,
    He said, "Don't even look back or nothin'"
    He said, "Uh, now when I get to that red light..."
    He wanted me to go to my left
    And then jump back to my right
    He says, "Now, uh, I want you drive up in that alley,
    N-n-n-n-not that alley, that alley over there!
    And pull up behind that liquor store,
    And keep a sharp look out at all times
    While I sneak in the back door."
    That's when he told me,
    He said, "Uh, keep you foot on that gas,
    And always be on gaurd,
    'Cause when I come runnin' out of there
    with all that money..."
    He wanted me to mash down on it real hard
    He said, "Now, uh, don't let me come out there
    And find me a double-cross,
    Because I murder when the heat's on.

    He said, "Reach for the sky!"
    I said, "But I don't understand you, sir."
    "Don't try no monkey business,
    I gotta stopper in my hand."

    Wooo-weee, I was just sittin' there, just tremblin'!
    Just then a spotlight hit me dead in the face
    And this great big Chicago cop behind me said,
    "Uh, move over a little bit, baby,
    We gonna take your place."

    Just then this guy come runnin' out of the liquor store
    With all that money in his hand.
    He said, "Oh, there you are."
    He made a mistake in the dark
    And leaped in the police car.
    They put the handcuffs on him,
    I said, "Child, your crime must have outgrew him!"
    And then they said, when they drove him away
    "We gonna put you so far back in jail this time,
    They gonna have to pump air into him."

    "Reach for the sky!"
    I said, "But I don't understand you, sir."
    "Don't give me no monkey business,
    This is the stopper in my hand."
