Gun Control Poem
By Paul Felton, Gray Panthers Poet
Too many of our daughters and sons
Have lost their lives because of guns
Too many lives have been impacted
I think it’s long past time we acted
Some say less children would be harmed
If only their teachers would be armed
If you ask me that’s not the answer
The spread of guns is like a cancer
We need background checks and furthermore
We need to outlaw weapons of war
The young folks Congress can’t ignore
If we keep pounding at their door
So join the fight, what do you say
We must defeat the NRA
