Screaming Down the Wires
Just saw on the news, the dreaded words, “School shooting!”
Unspeakable horror; unbelievable scenes
Many dead children among the victims
What would drive a man to those desperate measures?
Whether you’re a gun owner or not,
You have to admit something must be done
Insanity seems to be what the 2nd amendment’s come to represent
I mean, there’s individual liberty, then there’s just plain crazy!
They’ll sit there and defend their rights
What about the victim’s rights?
They have the right to sit in their classroom without WWII
Erupting around them; where’s their right to live?
The NRA’s against reasonable background checks,
Limiting the number of bullets a gun can fire in a short time
Common sense has left these people
Sure, these things won’t stop gun violence,
But at least we can say we did everything we could
And maybe, just maybe, stop this from
Happening with such frightening regularity
