guns kill people

Guns?guns kill people?
guns do kill people
it is not mental illness?
it is not video games
?it is not a million other things

it is simply this
?a gun is a weapon?
a weapon designed to kill people?
that is what guns do

the more they can kill
the merrier
guns love killing people
that is the buddha nature of guns 

guns don’t care
?they do as they are told
?if you pull the trigger
?they will kill the victim

that is what guns do?
that is why?
in a civilized society?
military assault weapons
?are locked up

yet in America?
the land of the free?
home of the brave?e
and lots of gunshots

Everyone and his cousin
?must have their gun
you know to blow away
Bambi the deer
and government agents

if it weren’t for guns
we’d still be British subjects
if only the Jews had guns
the holocaust would 
never have happened

guns for everyone?
cries the NRA?
that’s the solution
an armed society
is a polite society
everyone must pack heat

The president?
and his supporters
?deny the obvious

guns kill people?
that’s all they do
?it is a gun thing?
you would not understand

Mr. President?
you can take your words?
your empty platitudes
?your empty promises
your empty prayers
and empty thoughts 
about the victims

straight to hell? and back
where with any luck
?Satan will use you
?as target practice

note: this may be too political and in your face but I don't care. I have had enough of this nonsense. We must stop the carnage in our streets! That’s my two cents worth and I am sticking to my guns pun very much intended.
