A collaboration between Hullabaloo22 and Mike Stevens

Pro:

I’m gonna go out, gonna buy me a gun,

Got to go get protection from the thieving scum.


 

Anyone tries to break in to my place

They’ll wish they’d just passed when my gun’s in their face.


 

I’m not gonna sit here and be pushed around

This gun’s gonna make sure it’s courage I’ve found.


 

Me and my family – don’t treat us like dirt,

My gun, I will use it, and you’re gonna get hurt.


 

Don’t try to change it, don’t try to disarm,

It’s my right to choose if I mean to harm.


 

So some lunatic shooter goes off the rails,

It’s nothing to me if their mind it just fails.


 

Just mind your own business, you can’t have my gun,

Get outta my face because I’m Number One.


 

Con:


 

Oh, please, get that 'for protection' shit outta my face.

You always throw that '2nd Amendment Rights' all over the place.


 

Okay, when did 'a well-regulated militia' become, 'no restrictions'?

Sounds to me like a weak justification for your firearm addictions.


 

How many innocents have to die, how much blood on your hands

will it take before you say 'enough is enough," How much more can you stand,


 

how many more grieving mothers and innocent victims will it take

before you come to your senses and realize your position is insane, and make


 

you realize that some common sense changes are needed to our gun laws?

Things such as background checks for all? Sure, they're not the cause


 

of most gun tragedies, but if a background check stops just one?

That's one less grieving mother left to cry over a missing daughter or son?


 

Until you can tell me what possible reason you'd need a military-style assault

rifle to stop one intruder, I'll continue to believe it's your unyielding attitude at fault.
