Paul honors John at March For Our Lives

After Paul showed up at the New York City "March For Our Lives" rally, it was all over the internet. And in my opinion, rightfully so. I think it's incredible that someone of his fame went out in that crowd to support such a great cause he believes in.

And since it was all over the Internet, of course there was the backlash on Twitter saying that he supports guns because of the Lennon-McCartney song "Happiness Is A Warm Gun.And The Beatles' album Revolver.

I'm writing this to debunk those claims, whether they were Twitter trolls or not, it's annoying to me.

"Happiness Is A Warm Gun" was a song written mainly by Lennon after seeing a poster about guns. Just as "The Benefit For Mister Kite" was a song written about a poster, and "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" was a song written about a drawing by his son, and how "Savoy Truffle" was a song written by George about a box of chocolates. And there are so many more examples of this inspired way of writing music based on what you're around and what you happen to have access to at the time.

The album Revolver is said to be written about the motion of a vinyl record spinning and revolving as it's being played.

It's quite obvious Paul does not support guns.
