Marilyn Manson: Get Your Gunn Meaning
Song Released: 1994
Get Your Gunn Lyrics
I eat innocent meat
The housewife I will beat
The prolife I will kill
What you won't do I will
I bash myself to sleep
What you sow I will reap
I scar myself you see
I wish I wasn't me
I am the little...

It's about a doctor named David Gunn (hence the extra "N" on Gunn) who was killed by an anti-abortion extremist. Manson saw (as do I) this as very hypocritical for a person who's pro-life to kill someone

This song is clearly about the events of March 10, 1993. I can clearly hear and see the parallels in the lyrics and video. Unfortunately, I feel like I’m the beaten wife that is referenced. I was married to the man that MURDERED Dr. Gunn. Each of us, independently, will stand before God one day and answer for our decisions and actions. Michael Frederick Griffin is paying a price on this earth for being judge, jury and executioner. Only God has that right. Murder is wrong—period.

M.Manson's song 'get your-''Gunn'' was used as the ''scapegoat'' metaphor for the Righteous Individual that ''got his devil'' killed. That the Protagonist actually thought he was, in the hate of what he's done as a hyprocrit pro-lifer. But on the overall it's more about the ultimate sins committed by our sinful nature that needs to be redeemed and saved from the hyprocrisy of this world that doesn't want to take responsibility for its actions[sins] And yes,in otherwords this also could be about when the UN-Christian man that hasn't been ''BORN AGAIN'' in CHRIST, who the devil used and confused him with taking the law of GOD into his own hands that got his gunn to sadly kill this ''unsaved'' abortion Doctor that was playing GOD by doing his own kind of so called devil's work. By and when stopping the life cycle of a GOD given life that only GOD can ''truly and spiritually'' give. Not like the devil that wants to destroy and take real life away with his sick kind of love by the abortion of debauchery and murder. Anotherwords our ''sinful and selfish'' acts by works only murder and kill period. And not the gunn that was used as a tool, possessed by the devil OR should one say by our sinful acts. So not to blame nobody personally that committed murder as somekind of justice.

Yeah sorry your interprestation is wrong dude or dudette. I was rocking out to get your gunn before colombine happened.
With the line about pseudo morals, he is clearly talking about the hypocrisy by which people cherry pick their values when its convinient.
I think the other folk who wrote about the anti-abortionist or "pro-lifer" that murdered the abortionist, that's on target. It's cherry picking your values, cause the guy was pro life but thought it was cool to murder a doctor.
Truth is, if it is ok to murder a doctor because one murder is, in the murders eyes, out weighed by all the lives that will be saved by ending abortion, then the same argument can be made about pro choice. The good that comes in society from abortion, the pain and suffering that is prevented because of abortion could be said to out weigh the deaths in abortion.

Its about people who are believed to be moral because of the ideologies they claim to support but whose actions show them to be immoral. The "Gunn" in the song is an abortionist doctor who was murdered by the "righteous hand" of a "pro-life" extremist. This incident was one example of "selective judgements" that replace true morality.

Y'know, Kids were angsty and disturbed before columbine... Just because he sings of demented children does not mean he is refrencing columbine.

I Agree With Shallow Jester why does everyone think every manson song is about columbine its not even that intresting a event i think it is thatprolife protester thing now that ive read you guys ones but my personal interpretation of it is my three personalites Good Bad and Normal having a fight the screaming singing part is that good me the confused mixture of singing and talking is normal and the whispering one is evil me thats just my personal interpretation.
The video for this song seems to be about mental and sexual abuse and someone told me that 'get your gun' is an old slang term for having an orgasm so the extra 'N' was to imply that there is another meaning to this phrase rather than literally meaning "grab a gun"

When Manson says "The prolife I will kill" He could also be referring to one time there was this Christian anti abortion protester who has been annoying him for some time, So he decided to act like Satan has brought him there to make him leave, He reinforced the point by shooting a fireball from his hand (With the help of a magic kit)
