“While one hand draws up plans for border walls, the other hands out AR-15s to white, male, homegrown terrorists.” –Susan Schneider
When a friend posts on Facebook
how we used to drive around
with loaded guns in our pickups,
I remind him we were farm kids
who packed shotguns or a .22
to take pot shots at beer bottles,
cans, sometimes a pheasant or rabbit.
We are breeding a generation
of unbalanced, violent white men.
Turn a blind eye to abuse.
Tolerate the massacre
of women and children.
Accept NRA bullshit,
escalating school shootings.
Show me where in the 2nd Amendment
it confers an unfettered right
to military grade assault weapons,
Insanity is the definition of
repeating the identical actions
over and over while expecting
a more positive outcome.
