now is it time to do it

it didnt happen when all those kids got shot and killed
if it was ever going to happen
it should have happened when all those little kids got
mowed down
it didnt

it didnt happen when all those black folks got shot up
at that nightclub
i didnt really think it would happen after that one

it didnt happen when all those gay people got all shot up
in that gay club in orlando
i didnt expect anything to happen after that event
the comments were pretty nasty after that one

this time
this one well
it feels different

now before i go any farther with this
i dont own a gun
i dont intend to own a gun
would i go out and do shooting at a shoot club
yes i probably would
would i go hunting animals like deer squirrels doves etc
no i wouldnt
have i in the past
do i believe folks should not be doing that
no i dont have a problem with folks hunting game
now shooting tigers cats dogs elephants
thats different

should folks own guns
like many of my relatives do
i have no problem with that
they are the types of folks you want to own guns
law abiding
they use them to hunt
they eat or give away the game they shoot

what guns they own thats probably where i differ probably
with them
eg why should an american citizen own a gun like an ak47
there is not a reason
its a killing gun for the battle field
there is only so big a hole you can blow in a hog or a deer
or only so many holes you can put in a animal
when is it no longer fun

last night
in vegas of all places
at a country music show
one article says
50 were mowed down and killed
500 were injured
herds of deer in a big field
flocks of dove flying over
all mowed down
from so far awy
up high in that building

why on earth would we let someone to own a gun that powerful
a gun thats probably like the ak47
is meant to kill people and nothing else

now whats different about this
its a country western concert
not kids
not blacks
not gays
lots of bubbas probably were there
where were their guns to stop the shooter

its time for us to do it
make people register guns
make it harder to sell these killing machines to folks
who shouldnt own it
limit the arsenal that one can own

now if i were to own a gun
it would be to keep here at home
in case someone breaks through my door
i would choose an old double barrel shot gun
raise that sucker up
blow the intruder away
i am also afraid that bad things could happen if i keep
guns here
the odds are real real small if not infinitesimal that that
would ever happen
im happy not being a gun owner
i do feel its time
the bubbas got hit hard this time
that will make it happen
