The full auto gun ban began in 1986. I think he either says "sex sex sex sex" or/and "6 6 6" Idk...
I've always been curious about this song. I hope the getting older part is tied in directly to the ak47 and it's not just about dreading times pass. I'd guess he was working on this song in June. I wonder if he's familiar with Death in June's music, I doubt it. I saw a playlist of songs Ariel had on Youtube a couple years ago and Death In June was on it.

The restrictions on full-auto firearms are a result of the Hughes Amendment (99th Congress, H.AMDT.777). The amendment prohibited the general public from possessing fully-auto firearms manufactured after May 19, 1986. Rep. William Hughes (D-N.J.) proposed the amendment late in debate and at night when most of the members of the House were gone. Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.), a long proponent of gun control, was presiding over the House at that time and a voice vote was taken. Despite the fact that the bill appeared to fail, Rep. Rangel declared the amendment approved and it was incorporated into House Bill 4332. Once passing the House, H.R.4332 was incorporated in its entirety into S.49. The Senate passed the final S.49 on April 10, 1986 by voice vote and it was signed by the President on May 19, 1986

Maybe the elder Maus can let us know what his son's song is for?

This is an amazing song. I never get bored reading its lyrics. It might be plain and simple, but for some reason I just run it in my mind all the time. Maybe there is something really going on in my head.
