Music video 'Gun Bless America' satirizes proliferation of firearms (VIDEO)

TV ads with buxom blondes showing off guns on TV, kids playing while twirling revolvers, chicken sandwiches paired with, yup, guns — all wrapped in a slow jam.

Quebec artist JS Houle featuring humorist Virginie Fortin performs “Gun Bless America,” a music video satirizing the proliferation of guns in the United States. On the website created for the video, it states:

In the first 280 days of 2015, there has been 266 mass shootings in the United States of America. More than 40,000 incidents involving a gun. More than 2,500 children injured or killed. 10,154 deaths. But don’t worry, everything is fine. May Gun Bless America.

The video was posted on Oct. 8 and has received more than 20,000 views. The single is available on iTunes for 99 cents.
