ASSAULT RIFLES

No guns for our school teachers
That’s not what they signed up for
Are you really serious?
I can’t take this anymore.

More guns are not the answer
Assault rifles are weapons of war
What kind of match would a handgun be
When a psycho comes through the door?

A mild-mannered educator
Whose purpose is to teach
Is not going to feel any safer
With a 9mm within reach.

An assault rifle holds a magazine
Filled with hundred and hundreds of rounds
No one has a chance to outrun them
When they are being mowed to the ground.

Raising the age to purchase
Background checks and more
Won’t stop the purchase of assault rifles
They’ll be more blood and gore.

The politicians are being paid off
By the unconscionable NRA
It’s time to stop electing
Those benefiting in this way.

  1. I saw DT on the news at lunchtime saying something about teachers being armed and “having special training” … OMG … as if teachers don’t have enough stress teaching anyway. So can’t believe he would say this. Actually, I can. 🙄

  2. Unfortunately we have a President who doesn’t have a clue. There is so much more involved than arming teachers. They are teachers, not bodyguards. Our country has gone crazy and we’ve all let it happen. Time to bring back the protests from the 1960s.
