89 People.

I’m sick of all the ignorant posts on social media
When understanding statistics today couldn’t be easier –
Every day in America 89 people die from gun violence –
EVERY DAY.
89 PEOPLE.
DIE.
FROM
GUN
VIOLENCE.

‘It’s not an assault weapon’, ’it’s not an automatic’ Blah blah blah, does it actually matter?
Who cares what it’s called or what its fucking name is, you ain’t stupid you know what the game is,

IT’S DANGEROUS!

They’re saying
'If the people in that club in Orlando had been armed they could’ve fought back’,
Are they mad?

THAT’S FUCKING CRAZY!

What a thing to suggest,
Its twenty sixteen not the fucking WILD WEST!!!

WHAT NEXT?

Should we send kids to school strapped & ready? Fully loaded, tooled up, packed heavy
Who needs science class, Maths & gymnastics?

THIS IS MADNESS!

Give em target practice, bullet proof jackets
A hand gun for Christmas, Just don’t piss em off now
They might just attack us
Because let’s face it, these days kids are killing there school friends
Teachers, & best friends, girlfriends, boyfriends
Sometimes even themselves in the end

Accidents, suicides, random mass shootings, senseless teenage homicide

WHY?

Depression, movies, bullying, pride?
Or DID DADDY TAKE AWAY THEIR X-Box Live
There’s a million clichés, colour, class, the way that they we’re raised
That girl back in the 70’s didn’t like Mondays.

NO!

When you send your kids to school and Instead of coming home they die
That’s never gonna be something you can simply justify
With society’s excuses, ancient laws of the land
When a 16 year old kid’s got an AK 47 in his hand

Or when there’s gun violence in night clubs
In shopping malls, high schools, kindergarten classrooms
When we’re stepping over bodies on the picture house floor!

IT NEEDS TO STOP!

Death helps nothing or no one, violence begets violence
It’s not rocket science, it’s as simple as that
If we ALL wanted peace then we’d have peace, fact!

I agree that people help create the problem, and sometimes they snap when they hit rock bottom
But you can’t hit someone with a stick if you haven’t got one and,
You can’t shoot someone if you haven’t got a gun.

So America you pull the trigger at least 89 times a day, the rest of us are screaming for you to find another way
If guns didn’t exist nobody would have one at all
And you’d be safe at the movies and you could send your kids to school
Without worrying if they were gonna make it home at all.

Change your gun laws America, STOP IT ALL, stop the fighting and wars
Because nobody gets it,

NOT ANYMORE!
