Who gave you the right?

Steve Lee has released his latest video, the gun-rights song “Who Gave You the Right?” from his second album, Everybody Likes Guns.

Leading into the song with a short talk on the fight for gun rights, Steve sets the tone for a song he says is “pretty close to my heart”.

The lyrics are from a poem written by Clark McGhie around the time of the infamous Howard gun buy-back.

“I read it and it just blew my mind,” Steve says. “It was really well written. So the majority of that song really is Clark’s poem.

“It’s basically a song about saying to the government, who gives you this right to take our guns, and it just goes through the common reasons of how it doesn’t make any sense.”

The video features brief images of Australian shooters in their day-to-day look, as if to reinforce the fact that shooters are ordinary people like anyone else. 

One of them, however, is not just anyone, he’s John Tingle, the founder of what is now the Shooters and Fishers Party. The party receives a fair bit of ‘placement’ in the video, and Steve Lee is a strong supporter.
