No matter what style of music you like, musicians have been writing songs about guns for decades. Ever since the US Constitution guaranteed American citizens the right to bear arms, the USA has become synonymous with gun ownership. Whether you're an avid collector of vintage war guns, enjoy going hunting, or own a gun for safety purposes, we've got a list of gun songs that you'll definitely relate to.

What's the best song about guns? Johnny Cash's "Don't Take Your Guns To Town" tops our list.  It would do the genre an injustice not to mention The James Bond theme song, "The Man with the Golden Gun," Bob Marley's "I Shot the Sheriff," Jimmy Cliff's (later The Clash's) "Guns of Brixton," "Nigga Wit A Gun" by Dr. Dre, "Shotgun" by Junior Walker, and Skynrd's "Saturday Night Special" are all great songs about guns.
