This song is The Chats' condemnation of the absurdity of US gun laws. Frontman Eamon Sandwith told Q Magazine in 2020. "That was written a while ago after a shooting in America and one of those bloody Republicans came out and said, 'Hold on, we need to give the kids guns to protect themselves in school.' To an American it might sounds like a normal way of thinking, but we were just like what the f--k?! I just thought that's a funny mindset to think, these kids need guns; they don't even have fully formed brains yet."
