You do not need these guns
They do not keep you safe.
Instead, they keep you scared.
As long as you are scared
You’ll listen to the ones
Who want to sell you guns.
Now listen for the shots
In colleges and schools.
The gun inside your house
Can’t keep your children safe.
Perhaps it will be your
Confused and angry child
Who pulls the trigger next.
It’s out of your control.

    Not particularly inspired poetry.

    The fact is I am a licensed concealed carry holder in Texas and routinely carry a loaded and concealed handgun in public. Will carry one in church today in a couple hours.

    I am safer, and my family is safer. Even the public is safer because the more law abiding citizens legally carrying handguns the more intimidated the criminals will be.

    Here is a suggestion. You haven’t a clue as to what you are writing bad poetry about. Stop telling people who actually know something what to do.

      I’d tell you to check the statistics regarding the likelihood of being shot if you own a gun but it sounds like you’ve made up your mind. Enjoy church and have a lovely day. xxx
