The thirty thousand butchered every year
By automatic weapons and smart ammo clips
With rounds and rounds of bloody bullets aren’t
What Founding Fathers had in mind when one
Shot muskets backed their Constitutional
Amendment for gun owner rights. They are
Perversions: modern greed’s addiction to
The million dollar salaries of NRA
Officials, manufacturers of death
Who aren’t content with profits earned from grand
Crusades in Jesus’ name for gold and oil.
The slaughter of those innocents in school
Addresses more than one insanity.
It spotlights macho men and crotches stuffed
With socks to prove the naked power behind
Chest thumping fists that thunder “GOD’ (their God’s)
Commanding them to kill in dealing with
The Brotherhood of life’s humanity.

It would be a Very Sad Day to have our Guns Taken away and another Super Power come in and Take us over. That will happen if we give them up. One of the Greatest form of Protection is the Fact other Powers knows most every citizen is armed and if we have to be we will protect our great Country.

Those who say
We are law-abiding citizens
Don't take our guns away
Have a point
I might think they're nuts
But they're not crazy
Wouldn't it be nice
If they could say,
Along with the other side,
Yes we have a problem
Let's try and fix it together
Instead of standing in the way
Waiting for more children to die
Well, a girl can dream ...

Guns don't kill people, People kills people. When violiance becomes entertainment and become numb to it, people's morals are degraded. When people want to mainstream mentally troubled people we will have a problem. A lot of people are killed in many ways. Why is it that when people use a device to kill we blame the device. Chicago has the most restrictive gun laws in the country, however it also has the highest murder rate in the country. Gun laws have never helped protect anyone but the government take power from the people. Remember history remember Hitler.....

Four days ago 15 year old New Mexican teenager Nehemiah Griego took the family's guns and murdered his entire family. They included his parents Greg Griego, 51, and Sarah Griego, 40, and his three siblings, 9-year-old Zephania Griego, and daughters Jael Griego, 5, and Angelina Griego, 2. Outside the home was a sign reading "This house protected by Smith & Wesson".
No comment here, just reporting the news. Feel free to discuss with the rest of the class.
BTW - Very powerful words. If only those who need to read them would take them to heart.

Every time gun control is discussed, that bit about Hitler banning guns pops up. I wish people would check things like this for truth/fiction before spreading them.
Check Snopes.com (http://www.snopes.com/politics/quotes/disarm.asp) or The Straight Dope (http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/1791/did-hitler-ban-gun-ownership). The 1938 Weapons act passed during Hitler's reign actually loosened gun ownership restrictions for non-Jewish German citizens. You can go to either of these sources or do your own Google search on "Hitler guns."
We need a rational discussion of sensible gun control laws. Throwing in specious and untrue quotes that Hitler didn't make doesn't help.
