Inspired by McCarthy Bill Would Ban Common Self-Defense Magazines (NRA 1/21/11), and Va. data show drop in criminal firepower during assault gun ban (Washington Post 1/23/11).
Hey, hey, NRA
How many kids did you kill today?
How many people must be murdered or hurt
Because you the right to buy high capacity magazines assert?
How many criminals or crazy people will get a gun
Because you think that “right” can’t be taken from anyone?
How many must die before you care
And admit that every gun doesn’t belong everywhere?
How many more massacres are required
Before you admit that some regulation is required.
How many rounds must a magazine hold
Before you agree that it shouldn’t to civilians be sold?
How many will finally be enough
Before you even minimal measures don’t rebuff?
How many more innocents have to die
Before you your most extreme elements defy?
How many more nine year olds must we bury
Before you say extended magazines aren’t necessary?
How many more deaths will it take
Before we your stranglehold on gun policy
