John Wayne Rides Again!

What is it with certain parts of today's society?

Some think the answer to the gun problem is more guns!

Talk about making a grim picture worse

We already have too many ignorant people packing heat

Weekend warriors with little to no training

9 times out of 10, they only make a bad situation worse

By TRYING to do the right thing,

They take law enforcement into their own hands

They're the hanging judge, meting out justice

They're the judge and jury, who decide the punishment,

And carry out the sentence at the end of a gun

I don't understand America's obsession with firepower

John Wayne rides again!
