Cody from Kansas City, MoI don't think the song is about gun violence, but about trying to commit suicide. I mean, just look at the lyrics. "The gun in my mouth was real, and the taste, it blew my mind," (Which, as Derek mentioned, is genius) "In a black tie and straight jacket, man, I'm gonna try again," "Down another glass of courage and a shot of thorazine," "Taunting rigor mortis, I feel it draw in me," etc.

John Lennon wrote "The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill" about Richard Cooke, a hunter he met at the Maharishi's camp in India. Cooke hasn't shot anything since the camp, except with his camera - he became a freelance photographer for National Geographic.
