My opinion!


Build a border wall So terror can’t get in. Bury your heads in sand Against terrorists within. Massacres at concerts, Massacres in schools, Massacres in churches, Who are all the fools? Where are the protestors, Where the loud outcry? Where are those elected To keep us safe, and why? Money from the NRA Is needed more than lives Party solid, arm-in arm, Backed by oft-told lies. There are automatic rifles - Of guns there is a host - AR-15s and others To kill and maim the most. Let them sell in gun shows, Where restrictions are benign. Never mind their history, Ignore the warning signs. Just let every citizen Be armed up to the chin So we can have more massacres From terrorists within.

I understand your frustration Barbara, calm dialogue is needed to tackle this issue

Wise words which needed to be expressed...and, I might add, disseminated as widely as possible. Why can't we have stricter gun regulation and control. I do not know; nor, I think, do our legislators. It does go back to the money!

Money, ignorance and power, the roots of evil!
