Gun Control V. Sexual Assault - Poem by Luke Easter

Deaths in one year from rape victims, who commit suicide,
Are more than there are from school shootings, worldwide,
However, The U.S. Commander-In-Chief continues to hide,
The growing number of attacks in the military w/a blind eye.

A photo-opt was more than he & Governor Cuomo could pass,
But Oregon Sheriff Tim Mueller vows restrictions won't last,
He claims all future laws that in any way attempt to regulate,
'Certain magazines and firearms' he will not dare to violate.

Federal gun laws if they change in a way with he disagrees,
Whereas, it will violate the 2nd Amendment of this country,
Saying, 'Americans must not allow, nor shall we tolerate…'
Was it not the regime of King George that failed to liberate?

Guns don't kill anybody until in the hands of those deranged,
And signing new restrictive gun laws will not force a change,
Allowing criminals to have more firepower than the innocent,
Will increase the opportunity for more crimes, not prevent.

Not one single law is ever signed or proposed by any President,
Stopping military sexual assaults maybe due to embarrassment?
Because, if the head honcho fails to control his soldiers in arms,
How can they propose any measure to keep civilians from harm?

Yes! Tragic events at Columbine, Virginia Tech & Sandy Hook,
And any center for higher learning where guns diminish books,
If we take a look at the shooters in these unthinkable incidents,
These killers would have been able to acquire guns in any event.

Limiting the type of weapons & the number of magazine rounds,
As crooks have unlimited numbers of guns & ammo is not sound,
It's like going on an African Safari for big game with a BB Rifle,
Mr. Obama it's the bad guys not the good guys you want to stifle.
