Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The "constitutional right" the singer cites refers to the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution, which preserves the right to own firearms: "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."
  • One of the lyrics near the end of the song is a reference to the famous line from Dirty Harry, "Now, you better ask yourself, 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?"
  • A lyrical reference to a shooting injury being just a "flesh wound" is a reference to a famous bit from the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. See the scene here.
