The Assault Rifle Madness Continues

The Assault Rifle Madness Continues

By Elton Camp

From Sandy Hook we are still in dismay
Then another shooter blows folks away

This time it is in western New York State
Where a murderer expressed his hate

A military-style Bushmaster did choose
Same type weapon as on kids just used

Shout “Second Amendment” all you can
On such guns there should be a total ban

This is nothing but a killing machine
Exactly as we repeatedly have seen

The killer left a note describing his thrill
At getting a chance more people to kill

It’s not just for checking of buyers I call
This type rifle shouldn’t be made at all

This wasn’t the 2nd Amendment’s intention
So the “rights” of gun owners, don’t mention

That “right” has been interpreted very wrong
Clearly, only to a “militia” does it belong
