Mr President It is a Gun Situation
You are wrong once again?
You said that the tragic events
in Texas?,Ohio, Virgina Beach
And Las Vegas
were not “gun situations”
?But rather were mental health problems
And that in Texas
if there had been no gun controls
?Perhaps fewer people would have died
As the NRA says
the only solution to a bad guy with a gun
is a good guy with a gun
?I know you a smart man?
The smartest man in the world
?According to you
Please contemplate this fact
?According to the latest findings
?It is a gun situation
In fact, the reason the U.S.
?Has so many gun deaths?
Is because we have so many guns
?45% of the worlds guns in fact
And 33 percent of the world’s shooters
?Are Americans killing other Americans
And most of them
the majority of them?
Are White men killing other people
Minorities and women
are almost never the shooters
a strange metaphor but true
Not Islamic terrorists?
Most are in fact?Self-proclaimed Christians
Somehow thinking that Jesus
will approve of their actions
and forgive them their sins
When will you
come to your senses
And do what 90 percent
of the public wants?
Enact nation wide effective gun controls?
And tell the NRA
?they can take their blood money
When Mr. President
?When will you act
?When will you take charge
And become a President of the people
?Instead of the NRA's ?
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.
