Another Mass Shooting to Start the Day

outlaw poetry

another mass shooting to start the day

Today I was inspired to write some poetical rants about Guns, and God. America s a strange country, especially to an atheist like me. I grew up in Berkeley, California in an atheist household so I just don’t get people like Michelle Bachman at all. And especially how she and her ilk are so convinced that God wanted Donald Trump, the most ungodly of all recent politicians to be president.

I also don’t get the NRA and their insistence especially on days like today that the solution to the mass carnage in our society is more guns for everyone. There is a sickness in our society that the gun violence is merely a symptom.

I don’t have any answers to any of this just lots of doubts and questions about why if there is a God and God is all knowing and loving he permits such acts of evil. This is one of many reasons I am not a Christian believer.

Can we please enact some sane gun control laws????

Before getting to my rants on Guns and God, I’d like to offer my thoughts on a sane gun law policy. If Australia could do it and New Zealand could why or why can’t we do it?

My proposal would be to require all gun owners to be licenses and insured just like we require for all drivers. If someone is involved in a fire arm offense they would be sent to prison for ten years. If someone is charged with domestic violence offenses they would be banned from owning a gun. There would be universal background checks of course as well and military assault weapon bans. And the CDC and others would conduct studies into how to prevent gun violence.

90 percent of the public support these positions. So why do we tolerate such nonsense anymore?

Any time the NRA makes an stupid statement like “Guns Don’t Kill people,” the public will simply say to the NRA -STFU and offer real solutions otherwise go to hell with your prayers for those shot by the guns you promote. Just STFU..

That’s it in a nutshell. If you disagree that is fine with me. It is still a free country after all.
Now to the rants!!!!

Another Day Another Shooting

another day in paradise
just another day in America
land of the free
Home of the brave

and guns
lots of guns
more guns for all
cries the NRA

yes another day
another gun battle
another white man
who just wants to kill

the President sends his condolences
Thanks the law enforcement
for an incredible job well done
It was horrible

Hate has no place
in our country
and we will take of it
and do what ever we can do

condolences
nothing but false words
empty words
lots of things to do

it is mental illness problem
but he fails to mention
the words gun at all
not at all

and tomorrow and tomorrow
but he at least finally said
hate has no role in country
nothing but prime BS
in my humble opinion

he did not mention
white supremacy
his rhetoric had nothing
nothing to do about this at all

and so tomorrow
I will turn on the TV
and we see
nothing at all

and the dead
will remain dead
the guns will fire again
nothing will be done

welcome to America
land of the free
home of the brave

Mr. President Words Matter

Mr President
Words matter
your words matter

your words of hate
your words of division

your words
calling fellow human beings
scum, vermit, flith
invaders, animals
matter

they matter a lot
and is it little wonder
that people listen
to the hate you sprew forth

and some deranged people
take action
on your call
for action

against the invaders
on the border
they march to the border
to kill the invaders

your words matter
Mr. President
and your false words
of regret

fool no one
the damage has been done
the hate has been spread
just as you intended

and you
have the gall
to call yourself
A Christian

you are the anti-Christ
you are not a Christian
so please quite pretending
to be what you are not

please man up
accept your responsibility
set things right
apologize

the dead though
don’t need your prayers
they need action
they need leadership

and you are the president
so please start acting
like you give a damn

and if you do so
perhaps
you will find
people will follow you

but please
quite the words
of hate
the words that hurt

and quit calling immigrants
invaders and vermin
they are human beings
they are deserving of respect

this I ask of you
In Jesus’s name
even though I am not a Christian

Chief of Staff
You are absurd

the President’s chief of staff
said the other day
it was absurd
to suggest that the president’s words
had anything to do
with recent mass shootings

yet is it absurd
to see the lengths
to which the President’s supporters
will twist and turn
spinning away
the inconvenient truth

President Trump
is a racist bigot con man
who somehow
conned his way
to become President

he calls immigrants
criminals, vermin, animals
invaders
infesting the country

the El Paseo shooter
said that he went to the border
to shoot the invaders
and said
that he was a big Trump fan

it is not absurd
to connect these two huge dots
the President’s words
has real-world consequences

Yes Mr. Trump is a racist pig
and his supporters
are being absurd
to suggest otherwise

Another Mass Shooting at Shopping Center

the Frank Zappa Song comes to mind
as I contemplate the shopping scene massacre
in El Paso

Sadly, just another day
in America these days
You leave your house
and enter a war zone

with people
who want to do you in
because the color of your skin
just does not agree with him

And the Texas attorney general
says that there is nothing they can do
to prevent these outbreaks of mass violence
just like the weather

almost as if these things
are like the proverbial acts
of God

but what kind of demented god
would permit these daily outages
these daily manifestations of evil?

what is wrong with this country
that we just accept
that there is nothing we can do
to stop the carnage in our streets?

as more trouble comes every day
Is there really nothing more to be done
than to pray
to a non-existent man in the sky?

from relief
from these trouble
coming every day

every day
the same old story

a man with a gun
who shoots up a school

a church a mosque
a shopping mall
a place of work

and why
why are they so consumed
with hatred
for their fellow humans

that they can do this
just start shooting people
for no reason

just pull evil
came to town
that day

is there a god
that we can pray to
for relief from such evil?

or has Satan
come to rule
us ?

a thousand year of tribulation
is this the beginning
of the end of days?

I have no answers at all
other than that tomorrow
will be another day
of carnage

another day of evil
and there is no way
to delay
that trouble coming every day

It’s a Gun Situation, Mr. President

Mr. President
You are wrong once again

You said that the tragic events in Texas
And Las Vegas were not “gun situations”

But rather were mental health problems
And that in Texas if there had been gun controls
Perhaps fewer people would have died

Mr. President

I know you a smart man
The smartest man in the world
According to you

So please contemplate this fact
According to the latest findings

It is a gun situation
In fact, the reason the U.S.
Has so many gun deaths

Is because we have so many guns
45% of the worlds guns in fact
And 33 percent of the world’s shooters
Are Americans killing other Americans

And most of them
Are White People
killing other white people
Not Islamic terrorists

Most are in fact
Self-proclaimed Christians
Many of whom
support you

Like the killer
In El Paso
Texas

who says
he is a big fan

So Mr. President
When will you come
to your senses

And do what
90 percent of the public wants

Enact nationwide effective gun controls?
And tell the NRA
they can take their blood money elsewhere

When Mr. President
When will you act

When will you take charge
And become a President of the people
Instead of the President of the NRA?

Prayer Works

Dear Speaker Ryan

I want to tell you something
The dead don’t want your prayers

The dead don’t care
that you pray for them
They are dead after all

and yes Guns killed them
shot them dead

And you
and your so-called Christians
Are to blame

You refuse to do anything
Anything at all to stop the carnage
In our streets

The U.S. is flooded with guns
And more are sold every day
Millions of people don’t have health coverage
Millions are barely surviving

And your answer
Our dear great compassionate Speaker

Your answer
Is Prayer works
Government action does not

You act as if the gun violence
Plaguing our country
Was like the weather

Beyond our control
So here’s my prayer for you
And your colleagues

When you die
I pray that God
Will send you
And your friends

Straight to hell

Where Satan and his demons
Will use you for target practice

That’s my prayer to you
And as you know
Prayer works

I don’t Get It

Mr. Speaker
I admit I don’t get it

How does prayer
Stop gun violence?

Prayer did not work in Texas.
26 people were murdered
while praying.

God if he exists
Obviously does not care
About the poor people
Who died in his church

Because a mad man
Got a gun
And no they were not praying
To be delivered from death

No one deserves to die like this
So my prayer to you

Is simply this
Get off your rear end
Rally the country
And do something

About gun violence
That’s a prayer
I hope works

Add House Speaker Paul Ryan to the list of Republicans offering only thoughts and prayers in the wake of Sunday’s mass shooting in a Texas church, because taking meaningful action is always off the table with him and his party.

Speaking with Fox News Channel’s Laura Ingraham last night, Ryan reiterated that the victims and their families need more prayers because “prayer works.”

Prayer doesn’t work.

26 people were murdered while praying. Even Christians ought to admit that prayer doesn’t make a damn bit of difference and their God will do whatever their God wants to do, even if it means letting people die in church because a domestic abuser got his hands on a semi-automatic weapon.

Not that Ryan would ever say that.

Instead, he just blamed the “far secular Left” for not getting it.

Dear Governor Abbot

You say that you are a Christian
Yet you have the gall
to say that the proper response
To the evil acts

of the deranged gun man
Who shot up a church

Is to work closer with God
And that evil people
will find ways
To commit evil acts

And that there is
nothing the government

Can do to stop this madness
It is the price of our freedom

Why can’t you wake up
And see that you can lead

The way out of this madness?
Thousands of people die
Each year from guns in this country

Turning everyone into prisoners
Into their own homes
Afraid to walk outside
For fear that a nut job

With a gun
Will blow them away
In Church, at the store
In traffic
at the neighborhood Walmart

And you and your NRA buddies
Think the answer

Is to arm everyone to the teeth
And I wonder how Jesus

Would react to how
You have so misunderstood his message?

You Sir are not a Christian
And you Sir are going to not like

What God has to say to you
On Judgement day

We have evil that occurs in this world, whether it be a terrorist who uses a truck to mow down bikers in New York City, whether it be a terrorist who uses bombs or knives to stab people, or other terrorist who use vehicles, whether it be in Nice, France, or any other place in the entire world, who mow down people.

And I’m going to use the words of the citizens of Sutherland Springs themselves, and that is, they want to work together for love to overcome evil, and you do that by working with God.
