Firearm fatalities

Firearm  fatalities

Look at what recent media reports state
Awful, ironical, amusing  at once
Folks at the mercy of firearms in the STATES
Which fights terror, left and right, with booming guns.

Why not, at gun control laws, have a relook?
In Oak Creek and elsewhere, what a toll it took
Putting  US civilian lives more at risk
Than those in the war-torn  Afghan and Iraq.

    Ain't this the truth? SO much truth in this rispetto, Jagath. My niece's friend and her boyfriend relocated there to work at a department store...he shielded her from a bullet...she is alive today to talk about this horror....he is in heaven...gun laws need to be revamped...u r so right.

    I am sure that the signer's of the constitution had no idea we would be turning our guns on ourselves. It is horrible and ridiculous. Great write. Thanks for your comments. Love, Joyce
