Country Singer Dustin Collins: ‘Without the Second Amendment, There Is No First Amendment’ (Exclusive) – Breitbart News

Posted: August 8, 2017 at 3:51 am

Collins currently has a single out titled Cold Dead Hands. It is a declaration to gun-grabbers everywhere that the Second Amendment has been preserved by generation upon generation and that preservation will not end on his watch.

The first verse of Cold Dead Hands tells the story:

Theres a rifle in my closet, Made in 1893

Carved right on the barrel it says Winchester Company

Its been passed through generations, Ive been taught to use it well

Its put food there on the table, And it aint never been for sale

Theres people on my TV, telling me whats right and wrong

Not one damn gun of mine, has ever pulled the trigger on its own

From the verse, Collins transitions to a chorus reminiscent of the great Charlton Heston:

From my Cold Dead Hands

Its about you and me, aint no redneck thing, why dont you understand

You can bitch and moan, all you want

Youll get my gun from my Cold Dead Hands

When I wrote this song I was watching the news and I just got super aggravated, Collins told Breitbart News on Sunday. I got real irritated with the whole thing I thought about everybody I grew up with here in Kentuckyout here in rural America. You know, we get guns for our birthdays and Christmas. Its something you get when youre very young. When youre eight, nine, ten years old, you get your first rifle and go deer hunting and stuff. People out there in other parts of the country dont understand customs and traditions like we have in rural America.

America was built on guns, he added. We took our freedom from the English. If it wasnt for guns wed be having tea and biscuits instead of steak and beer. Its that kind of thing to me. Without the Second Amendment there is no First Amendment. Theres nothing that stops anybody from coming and taking what you worked hard for. To me its just a very simple fact of life; its freedom, thats what owning a gun is. Its the very foundation of freedom.

The Nelson County, Kentucky native is set to play a handful of concerts across his home state through the end of September.
