unfortunately the epidemic of gun violence in America continues. Here are my Gun Poems.
Guns KIll People

Unfortunately mass shootings have become so common in the U.S. here are my "gun" poems written over the last few years. A few have been published.

I hope and pray that our political leaders will do something to solve the problem. the NRA's position seems to be more guns for everyone is the solution. They are so wrong. the widespread availability of super lethal weapons is the problem. You simply can't kill on a mass level with knives, or hammers, you need a high powered weapon designed to kill as many people as possible in the shortest time possible and you need to be so deranged that you want to kill as many people as possible in the shortest time possible.

universal background checks would help, treating guns like we treat cars would help. red flag laws would help. Guns should be registered, and owners should have to buy liability insurance. the Federal government should spend time and money studying the causes and prevention of gun violence. Buying back assault weapons would be a good idea as well.

I do agree with the NRA on one point, we should prosecute people who use guns in the commission of a crime and enforce all existing laws.

here then are my gun poems

Another Day Another Shooting

another day in paradise

just another day in America

land of the free

Home of the brave

more guns for all

cries the NRA

yes another day

another gun battle

another white man

who just wants to kill

the President sends his condolences

Thanks the law enforcement

for an incredible job well done

It was horrible

Hate has no place

in our country

and we will take of it

and do what ever we can do


nothing but false words

empty words

lots of things to do

it is mental illness problem

but he fails to mention

the words gun at all

not at all

and tomorrow
and tomorrow

but he at least finally
hate has no role in country

nothing but prime BS

in my humble opinion

he did not mention

white supremacy

his rhetoric had nothing

nothing to do
about this at all

and so tomorrow

I will turn on the TV

and we see

nothing at all

and the dead

will remain dead

the guns will fire again

nothing will be done

welcome to America
Land of the free

home of the brave

Mr. President Words Matter

Mr President

Words matter

your words matter

your words of hate

your words of division

your words

calling fellow human beings

scum, vermin, 
invaders, animals

they matter a lot

and is it little wonder

that people listen
to the hate
you sprew forth

and some deranged people

take action

on your call 
for action
against the invaders

on the border

they march to the border

to kill the invaders
your words matter

Mr. President

and your false words

of regret
fool no one

the damage has been done

the hate has been spread

just as you intended

and you 
have the gall

to call yourself

A Christian

you are the anti-Christ

you are not a Christian

so please quite
to be
what you are not

please man up

accept your responsibility

set things right

the dead though

don’t need your prayers

they need action

they need leadership

and you are the president

so please start acting

like you give a damn

and if you do so

you will find

people will follow you

but please

quite the words
of hate

the words that hurt

and quit calling immigrants

invaders and vermin

they are human beings

they are deserving of respect

this I ask of you

In Jesus’s name

even though I am not a Christian

please Donald Trump
become the president

of the people 

and end the war of words

and constant hate

Chief of Staff, You are Absurd

the President’s chief of staff

said the other day

it was absurd

to suggest that the president’s words

had anything to do

with recent mass shootings

yet is it absurd

to see the lengths

to which the President’s supporters

will twist and turn

spinning away

the inconvenient truth
President Trump

is a racist bigot con man

who somehow
 conned his way

to become President
he call immigrants
 criminals, vermin,
 infesting the country

the El Paseo shooter

said that he went to the border

to shoot the invaders

and said 
that he was a big Trump fan

it is not absurd

to connect these two huge dots

the President’s words

have real world consequences

Yes Mr. Trump is a racist pig

and his supporters

are being absurd

to suggest otherwise

Guns Kill People

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 t
o kill people

that is what guns do

guns don’t care

they do as they are told

if you pull the trigger

they will kill the victim
hat 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

everyone and his cousin

must have their gun
guns for everyone

cries the NRA

that’s the solution

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

so Mr. President

you can take your words

your empty platitudes

your empty promises

straight to hell

and back

where with any luck

Satan will use you

as target practice

NRA Please Stop Talking

Another day
Another mass shooting

Another incident
of domestic terrorism

another gun man
killing people
because just because

The NRA 
And their stooges

Come out

Flood the airways
With their noxious
Poisonous weasel words

The NRA says
Mass shootings

Are like the weather

You can’t control them

You can’t predict them

And you can’t prevent them
Just have to accept it
It is all god’s will

Guns don’t kill people
IF guns were outlawed

Only outlaws would have guns
Only solution

more guns
 for everyone

An armed society
they say 
Is a polite society

Support for gun control
I is
socialist/communist/fascist/anti-American/anti-Christian nonsense
The beginning of tyranny

If only the Jews had guns

The holocaust would not have happened

Jesus would want us all

to be armed 
with machine guns
To protect us against the evil doers

It is the Christian thing to do

To blow away evil doers
With heavy arms

In America
Land of the free

Home of the brave

We can’t do anything

At all
About the mass carnage

Unleashed by madmen with guns

Who walk among us

Searching for their next victims

Any restriction of the right

To bear arms
Is tyranny at its worst
The nanny state run amuck

Talking about gun control

After a tragic event
just not the appropriate time

We only need prayers

and meaningless thoughts

Universal background checks

Too onerous
Registering guns

Too burdensome
Researching gun violence

waste of tax payer money

banning military style assault weapons

restricts my right to blow 

Bambi the deer
with a M16

the NRA will keep talking

talking and talking

preventing anything

from being done

and we will have another

Mass shooting event

Before the day is out

So my plead

This day

To the NRA
and their stooges 

Talk is cheap

Your comments

Are not helping

If you can’t
a part of the solution
Just stop talking

Please stop talking

And let the rest
Of us figure out

How to stop

The madness in the streets
And stop the carnage



More Guns for Everyone in the World

The NRA has decided

That the best solution
to global problem

Of rampant violence
and crime everywhere
Is for the rest of the world

To become like the U.S

Where anyone can buy a gun

As an armed society is a polite society’

And so the President
is about to announce

A global campaign against gun control restrictions

As these restrictions are an undue burden

On the rights of the US arms manufactures

To sell their guns
everywhere in the world

As everyone wants what we have to sell

The best weapons in the world

Instead of trying to limit the damage

That unrestricted gun sales

Have done to the U.S.

Our President, our great leader

Wants to sell more guns

Everywhere in the world

And there are eager buyers

Lining up around the world

Eager to buy the best guns

The world has ever seen

We want to export

The gun madness

That has infected our society

Leaving behind so many dead bodies

The dead were not consulted

For they remain dead

They do not vote

They have no voice

For the guns silenced

them for good
Just as the guns

Just doing their gun
thing after all

Humanity has evolved

From stones to arrows

To guns

To nuclear, biological weapons

And the U.S.

While proclaiming itself

A champion of Human Rights
Remains nothing
but a country

Of gun runners

Merchants of death

And destruction

Trump Administration Advances Plan to Relax Gun-Export Rules

The Trump administration on Monday advanced a long-sought-after plan to relax export rules for American small arms, including semiautomatic rifles, handguns, and sniper rifles.
In a private briefing with members of Congress, State Department officials outlined a proposed rule change that would transfer oversight of gun exports to the Department of Commerce. The proposed rule will be published in the Federal Register later this week, where it will be subject to public comment for 45 days. While it is unlikely, Congress could block the change using powers under the Congressional Review Act.

The shift, which was first proposed by the Obama administration in 2012, is championed by gunmakers who say it will make them more competitive in the international market. Critics argue an export policy that favors commercial interests could put the national security of the United States at risk or harm diplomatic efforts.
“Weakened Congressional oversight of international small arms and munitions sales is extremely hazardous to global security,” said Senator Ben Cardin of Maryland, a Democrat who serves on the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, in an emailed statement.
“This decision is also politically tone-deaf as our nation reckons with a gun violence epidemic.”
A State Department spokesman said that the change would ease the regulatory burden on American gun makers and allow them to compete better globally.

Currently, the Department of State monitors exports of nearly all weapons through the U.S. Munitions List. Since 2002, the department has been required to notify Congress of overseas sales of firearms worth more than $1 million.
In 2016, the State Department alerted the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to a proposed sale of more than 26,000 rifles to the Philippines. Cardin at the time objected to arming the regime of PhilippinePresident Rodrigo Duterte, who had inaugurated a wave of thousands of extrajudicial killings as part of a crackdown on drugs. The weapons deal was canceled as a result.

The proposed rule change would transfer control over the sale of small arms to the Commerce Control List, and Congress would no longer be notified of large purchases.
Some arms control experts say reduced oversight could provide criminals, terrorists, or hostile states an opportunity to purchase American weapons.
Under Department of Commerce weapon-export rules, “companies aren’t required to provide as much information about brokers or shipping” as they must under State Department supervision, said Colby Goodman, who examines American weapons exports as director of the Security Assistance Monitor program at the Center for International Policy in Washington. “The world of firearms exports is full of questionable, dubious characters.”

The rule change has been long in the making. It was first proposed in 2012 by the Obama administration, but abandoned shortly after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. At the time, the Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security criticized the change because it could make it easier for transnational criminal organizations or terrorists to get American-made guns.

In September, Reuters reported that the Trump administration was interested in reviving the rule change to encourage more international arms sales. With the formal commencement of the public comment period, the preparation has become a policy reality.
In April, the Trump administration said it would now consider economic factors in addition to security when it comes to selling American weapons overseas.
The Trump administration has argued that the change would aid the domestic gun industry by cutting down on export regulation. American consumer sales of firearms have suffered since the 2016 election. After years of elevated sales in anticipation of possible new gun-control measures imposed by Democratic lawmakers, domestic demand subsided as Republicans took full control of the federal government.

more guns for everyone

It’s a Gun Situation, Mr. President

Mr. President

You are wrong once again

You said that the tragic events in Texas

And Las Vegas
were not “gun situations”

But rather were mental health problems
And that in Texas
if there had been gun controls

Perhaps fewer people would have died

Mr. President

I know you a smart man

The smartest man in the world

According to you

So please contemplate t
his 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 People killing other people

Not Islamic terrorists

Most are in fact

Self-proclaimed Christians

So Mr. President

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 elsewhere
When Mr. President

When will you act
When will you take charge

And become a President of the people

Instead of the President of the NRA?

Prayer Works

Dear Speaker Ryan

I want to tell you something

The dead don’t want your prayers

The dead don’t care
that you pray for them

They are dead after all

And you and your so-called Christians

Are to blame

You refuse to do anything

Anything at all
to stop the carnage
In our streets

The U.S. is flooded with guns

And more are sold every day
Millions of people don’t have health coverage

Millions are barely surviving

And your answer

Our dear great compassionate Speaker
Your answer

Is Prayer works

Government action does not

You act as if the gun violence

Plaguing our country

Was like the weather

Beyond our control

So here’s my prayer for you

And your colleagues
When you die
pray that God
 Will send you
And your friends

Straight to hell
Where Satan and his demons

Will use you for target practice
That’s my prayer to you

And as you know
Prayer works

I don’t Get It

Mr. Speaker

I admit I don’t get it

How does prayer

Stop gun violence?

Prayer did not work in Texas.

26 people were murdered

while praying.

God if he exists

Obviously does not care

About the poor people

Who died in his church

Because a mad man

Got a gun
And no they were not praying

To be delivered from death

No one deserves to die like this

So my prayer to you

Is simply this

Get off your rear end

Rally the country
And do something

About gun violence
That’s a prayer
I hope works

Add House Speaker Paul Ryan to the list of Republicans offering only thoughts and prayers in the wake of Sunday’s mass shooting in a Texas church, because taking meaningful action is always off the table with him and his party.
Speaking with Fox News Channel’s Laura Ingraham last night, Ryan reiterated that the victims and their families need more prayers because “prayer works.”
Prayer doesn’t work.

26 people were murdered while praying. Even Christians ought to admit that prayer doesn’t make a damn bit of difference and their God will do whatever their God wants to do, even if it means letting people die in church because a domestic abuser got his hands on a semi-automatic weapon.
Not that Ryan would ever say that.
Instead, he just blamed the “far secular Left” for not getting it.
