Guns: NRA dances on the graves of the Newtown children, Morin Cartoon

What can be done about guns? A handful of Democratic Senators got the word from their political poll gurus that if they went with the Assault Rifle ban they would no longer be Senators. We can tell them to MAN UP of course, but they would all lose to REPUBLICANS. Do we want to give the Senate to the GOP?

It's not the laws, it's the culture of gun enthusiasts that has to be broken. Just like our American brand of nasty, violent, intolerant evangelical Christianity. The back needs to be broken on both. The people have to man up because congress sure won't.  I wrote this poem over 20 years ago and things have only gotten worse…

The NRA Song

Guns are neat, Guns are sweet
Guns the tool, what makes you cool.
Guns are fine, Guns are mine
Guns are things, that Jesus brings!

Guns for loonies, Guns for cons
Guns for Moonies, Guns for moms!

Guns are fun for everyone, buy them up by the ton.
Guns for me, Guns for you, Guns for nuts and children too!
Guns at home, Guns at work, Guns at play, Guns berserk!

Tons and tons of great big Guns,
Are tons and tons of great big fun!

I’ve got Guns up my nose ‘tween my ears and by my toes.
I’m no fool, I’m so cool, I take Guns to my school.
I take Guns in my car, to the store and to the bar.
I got Guns in a drawer, in my pocket and on the floor.
I got Guns on the wall, behind the toilet and in the hall.

I got guns in my bed, one is growing from my head!
Get a Gun and get it fast, Gun-Gun shoot-shoot is a blast!
