We are so contradictory in our affair with guns. On one hand we revere our American Heroes and buy our kids GI Joe toys and guns to play with, while telling them that guns are not to be pointed at anyone because they are so dangerous. We buy them video games of virtual reality that allows them to kill at will, and then tell them this is not real and they should never think of killing real people. We buy guns at gun shows and keep them in our house, and tell our children if anyone tries to break in we will shoot to kill. We watch our Hollywood heroes kill at will, but they are not to do the same. What are you teaching your children by word and by the toys and games you allow them to own?  Solutions solved by guns almost always end in death and collateral damage.

Teachers at school are all shaken
Students lay dead// lives taken
Blame freely passed
The public’s aghast
While guns freely trade and are taken

*

Student in school have had enough
Parents and administrators in a huff
While congress delays
The gun lobby pays
As the NRA’s stand remains tough

*

TV news constant streaming
Showing pictures of shooter and screaming
The death count will rise
Amid shots fired and cries
As the next insane planner keeps on scheming

*

Trump says teachers should be armed
As parents and teachers sound their alarm
Teachers used to be teaching
Carrying guns seems far reaching
As they try to keep children from harm

  1. I used to love these toys as a kid. Our imaginations would run wild for an entire day until we “Had” to be in for dinner. I never once thought it would be cool or fun to shoot up a school, and I wasn’t one of the “cool” kids either. I just think society and media have in a sick way glamorized this stuff. We had an “epidemic” in my area for a while with kids jumping in front of trains and committing suicide and they claimed that it was “glamorized” kids are whacked. I really don’t know anymore. I just know I wouldn’t want to be a kid nowadays.
