Weapons

The most obvious reference. Throughout the video, Childish has unrestricted access to firearms and even kills some people. Recently, American students took to the streets in a large demonstration to call for a tightening of arms control in the USA. The protest was catalyzed by the series of massacres that took place in the recent history of the American country. In 2018 alone, 17 attacks were counted.

The Charleston Massacre

Halfway through the song, the protagonist uses a machine gun to kill 10 people, who formed a gospel choir.
