Another school shooting in Florida. More young people have lost their lives for Americans’ right to bear arms. I’ve wheeled this poem out before but sadly nothing ever changes. It’s hard for outsiders to understand. I guess the thinking goes like this.
All Fall Down.
The answer to all the killing
Is more good men with guns
The goodies will shoot the baddies
The baddies will all fall down.
The baddies might get some goodies
But they’ll die in a very good cause
The noble cause of the right to bear arms
Bang, bang they all fall down.
Here’s to the Wild West shoot out
The good guys in white hats
Sad about Vegas n’ Sandy Hill
We’ll mow those baddies down.
You have to have some violence
In order to keep the peace
Here’s to the ring of gunfire
And the ones who all fell down.

Andrew! Wow! Such a stunning piece and an amazingly simple but precise spotlight of the view of the NRA – which is, in my opinion, insane! Yeah, I want teachers to shoot at a gunman who has an AR-15 and body armor with a handgun over the heads of children. Most of the shots taken by trained law enforcement in live shooter situations miss! Imagine how bad it would be with teachers firing guns? Wonderful post! Thanks for visiting my blog!
