Bumper-sticker slogan of NRA supporters, which makes the obvious point that guns normally don't go off without some kind of human intervention, and that the real solution to violence is not in making any certain potentially lethal device unavailable, but in changing basic human nature from violent to peaceful.

soft-edge, acoustic alternative music with emotive (usually male) vocals, modern chord patterns, and lyrics shot through with the eternal themes of love and loss in endless variation. Genre originated by David Gates and Bread in the late 1960's (exs.: "If", "Diary", "Baby, I'm A Want You") but known then as "soft rock."
Oooh, that song is sooo emo - it could be, like, you know.. the theme for prom this year!
