Guns don't kill people, people do. I have lost a loved one because of you. I will hear no more footsteps coming down the hall, no more fingerprints on my wall. No more laughter, no more tears. No more memories in the coming years. How does it make you feel inside, not knowing if the person you shot, has lived or died? Whether you're in a gang, or you stand as one. You're not that big without a gun. What if I had went wild, and the gun I shot had wounded or killed your child? Our situations would be the same. Two individuals fighting a never ending game. The message here is very clear.... You shoot me, I shoot you...Guns don't kill people, people do.
