Gun Laws

Disclaimer: Not meant to be a poem for or against gun ownership or use.

They say Guns don’t kill people,
But rather that people kill people.
They talk about taking away the guns.
Like it’s a solution.

But they forget.

If you take away a man’s gun,
He will still have his knife.
What then?
Take away his Knife?
He will kill with other harmful objects,
Or anything they can get their hands on.
Take these away,
You leave him with only his hands.
But men have been known to kill with their bare hands.
Then what have we left to take?
His hands?
Take those from him too and not only do you solve the problem,
But you render him useless.

Or do you?

He still has his teeth.
Pull them out?
He has his words?
Take away his speech and what have he left?
Nothing.
But a man can kill with nothing.
He has his thoughts.
And many a man has murdered in his heart with his thoughts.
