Don't hate me, but can we get past the guns?

Guys:

I am wondering if you might consider moving beyond all the gun imagery (and lyrics).

Before anyone posts an angry reply, please read the following

1. I'm a 51 year-old guy who has listened to your music and thinks it's great.

2. I have a fifteen-year-old daughter who thinks that you all are more than just great, and introduced me to your music.

3. We haven't and won't censor what she listens to, hangs on her walls, or wears (she's got a fair assortment of MCR merch). Short of online hate speech--which should be moderated to protect a community's members--I can't think of anything I'd ever try to censor.

4. I know you guys are not promoting violence, and I don't think people who shoot people have been influenced to do so by your or anyone else's music.
