Firearm Fantasies 1

Firearm fantasies

Guns should never be a matter of right
Firearms are not fun in  psychopath’s hands
Lax gun control laws tragedies invite

Mentally deranged are there  in all  lands
Who knows when one of them  decides to kill
Firearms are not fun in  psychopath’s hands

Crazy ones may  look like men of goodwill
Wrong is the view that firearms   make life safe
Who knows when one of them decides to kill.

Make  stricter gun control laws that do chafe
Only the deserving ones should own guns
Wrong is the view that firearms   make life safe.

One in ten thousand may need to own one
The  government needs to fearlessly act
Only the deserving ones should own guns.

Deal with the issue with resolve and tact
Guns should never  be a matter of right
The government needs to fearlessly act
Lax gun control laws tragedies invite.

Fantasy mine
Issue real for all
Obama’s  dilemma?

Ps: Written just after the killing of 26 people, including 20 small children in a school in Newtown, Connecticut, US, by a gunman . Attention is also invited to my poem ‘Firearm fatalities’ posted in Aug after the Wisconsin incident.

    There are more than 30,000 instances of our gun laws in America that have not been followed thru with...meaning, since 2005 when stricter laws were enacted, those with documented mental health disorders were not prevented from purchasing them...the other side to this issue is a medical system that keeps decreasing its benefits to those who are mentally ill. Where I live, the only assisted living facility for mentally ill was shut down...no plan for the now 100 plus deranged homeless...

    Scrap ninety percent of your gun laws and take away the gun from the hands of the common man. Possession of guns should never be treated or claimed as a matter of right. Change the laws if needed!!

    Glad to see u writing of current issues, Jag...Bearing arms is a right in our country...Some restrictions are needed and the laws NEEDS TO BE ENFORCED! :)

    There are gun laws and rules and regulations in place but people manage to get around them..Enjoyed reading your ideas about the situation..I am of the opinion that we need to get help for those who have mental problems that is where the laws should be in place..If that young man had had the help that he needed he would not have been in that situation..Thanks for stopping by..Sara

    I agree with YOU!!! There are many who do not in this country!! The least we could do is to compromise and make sure the really heavy stuff, like assualt rifles are banned.

    A very meaningful write that invites a lot of consideration regarding gun laws. It was a terrible tragedy. Nevertheless very well penned Terzanelle with interesting questionku chaser. Good luck with this one.

    This is very well written. I agree with you. Everything is crazy. The Governor where i live wants to give the teachers the right to bare arms. I myself don't think that is a good idea. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla
