National Rifle Association

Never enough death for their liking

Always responding with “more guns”

This never seems to solve anything

It simply exacerbates the problem

Our constitution was meant to be fluid

Not fixed in the past

As times change so must it change

Lest we be captive to our founders

 

Read Jefferson

In his infinite wisdom he prayed it to progress

Fitting the needs of future generations

Left to our own vices we have failed

Every time a death occurs with gun-in-hand

 

Aren’t the lives lost worthy of discussion

Society says it has progressed

Sadly…I do not see it

Only more violence met with the promise of violence

Calls for change go unheeded

Instead they are met with angry rhetoric

Attacking anyone who disagrees

Toughening of gun laws is not outrageous

It is common sense

Only a savage society would disagree

Now let the games continue

    • Hi Phil, I wish we could as well. I am by no means anti-gun as I am a gun owner as well, but the state I grew up and purchased these firearms required a thorough background check, a mandatory waiting period which I believe at the time was 10 days and the gun had to be registered. In my opinion, there is nothing wrong with this, it didn’t affect my life in any adverse way and I never felt like my rights were being violated. Maybe out these tragedies some good can result in the way of reasonable gun legislation. I guess we will have to wait and see. Thank you my friend.

  1. Wonderful acrostic and you’re so very right on this subject … let’s remember that they also allowed slavery and women (or illiterate and poor men for that matter) couldn’t vote … time we start realizing that guns are about money and these people could care two hoots about rights.
