    Guns Don’t Die, People Do

    She walked out the door

    Said, “I’m going to the store.”

    Now she’s dead on the floor

    And they won’t see her anymore

    Guns don’t die, mothers do

    They set off for school

    To learn the golden rule

    Just to have some fool

    Kill them with his killing tool

    Guns don’t die, children do

    This country is flooded with tools of hate

    Meanwhile the NRA celebrates

    Let’s buy them all back and melt them all down

    Then we won’t have as many guns around

    They were out on a date

    That’s when they met their fate

    Through the turnstile gate

    Now for them it’s too late

    Guns don’t die, people do

    Guns don’t cry, but people do

    Saw a news item this weekend. Some models of rocking swings are being banned in the US because nine kids have tragically died while sleeping in them over the last eleven years. Of course it is horrible that these kids died, but it’s one kid a year; while 4500 people, far too many of them kids, are killed by guns here every year. And we can’t even have a civil, honest and, god forbid, non-partisan conversation about the safety of guns. 90% of us want change, yet 10% stall everything. This is democracy? Come on people, vote these zealots out and find people, of whatever political stripe you prefer, who can put the good of all of us before their own narrow self-interest; lest we lose our great experiment in democracy.

    The first reaction after such an event is despair and grief. The next is possible flight, but schools and churches seem to have become the targets of choice, and every community has them.

    Seems obvious to me and to others that the best way to reduce the numbers of these horrible events is to limit the sale and possession of rapid-fire weapons and to place limits on possession in general. Person owns a dozen guns and says it’s a collection, but who never shows them? Gotta wonder what that person is thinking as he looks at them day after day.

    Some suggest a requiring a permit that includes at least some formal training in the care and use. Might work for many, who just ‘gotta have one for protection.’ Won’t change those who have some kind of grudge against schools or churches or who choose them because there is less likelihood of facing armed response.

    Whatever results from all the ‘discussion,’ it is unlikely any solid legislation will be produced from the waffle-burgers in DC in the coming years. Stalling is what they do best.

    Yay! Chicago, Detroit, WashingtonDC and other Democrat run utopias with extreme gun control laws! Though. . . I hear they are working to rob people of bullet proof protection there now. Oh well. I’m sure adding more laws will encourage the criminals to FINALLY start obeying them.

    Unfortunately, kevlar is worthless against assault rifles. Unless you are also willing to carry around twenty pounds of ceramic anti-ballistic plates, you are better off working toward gun control legislation.

    I was confronted with gun violence in the 1980s while working in Bank of America’s S.F. Headquarters Legal Dept. I worked in the Litigation section on the 7th floor. On the 8th floor a disgruntled ex-employee was holding hostage at gun point the attorney advising on personnel matters. The gunman blamed the attorney for his firing. I did not know what was happening until S.W.A.T team members rushed past my desk fully armed. Not too much later, a disgruntled client of the law firm located at 100 California St. went on a rampage and proceeded to massacre many many innocent people. Then a few years later, while working at a law firm in S.F. I observed from the high rise window a person in full bomb detail uniform scan the area of a major bank for bombs.

    On one occasion when he was promulgating his proposed firearms ban in Australia, our Prime Minister, John Howard, wore one of those under his jacket. We’d had a few gangland shootings, and there was the massacre at Port Arthur (look it up) but his solution wasn’t to disarm the gangs but to take the firearms from the law-obeying citizens. We still have gangland shootings; but no massacres. Yet.
