How Many Shots in a Glock?

The tragedy of 20 elementatary Connecticut children have shaken us to the bone. But the proposals from Obama are completely off the point. Guns do not kill people, people with guns kill people and mentally ill people with guns go to the head of line in terms of the killing. The First Amendment will not prevent the violent culture and killing games, but maybe some dollars to the parents to see the issues and defuse. I support the Second Amendment whick is not just for the Hollywood Stars or the Michael Bloombergs of the world but for all of us.  Most of us are not trained killers and in stress could probably not hit a barn. 7 OR TEN MAY NOT BE ENOUGH TO DEFEND
In all my years I have never shot at a human seeking harm
Maybe because Alaskans with threats could always disarm
If charged by a Grizzly even if every shot hit
You were likely to be clawed and bit
Always a 12 guage and a multi shot magnum big bore
To kill the bear seeking your throat to be closed with gore
When the rapist is crashing through the windows with blood lust
And the police are way away who can your safely trust
Only a gun but the adrenaline makes you miss and shake
You need, a big magazine as much as the gun will take
Bloomberg on guns like sodas is a complete and total twit
Surrounded by safety of guns he obviously permits
While a women shooting but shaking like a leaf
Out at seven misses and screaming for the police relief
Bloomberg you are a mayor and  a major hypocrite
Worse on the second amendment a more than major piece of shit

Rubio and the Gang of Eight

While Obama dithers with gun control or digs his head into the sand deeper each day with the spending crisis facing this country and Iran and North Korea rush headlong into building and delivering nuclear weapons and last but not least the banana republic dictator of the Senate who continues to hold himself above the law, finally a group of Senators lead by Mark Rubio are listening to their oath and in a bipartisan way trying to solve the issue of immigration

Maybe our leaders finally realize the horse has left the barn
Deportation efforts of noncriminals bring us less good and only harm
After the border against cartel and felons is secure
It is time to spend the money to the problem really cure
Retain Spanish but it is time to assimilate
One flag, one language and common traditions to relate
Great waves of immigration we have always endured
Millions seeking with their feet poverty a chance to cure
Anyone not carrying a gun or drugs across a river or desert sands
Working to support a family, learning English should stay in this land
In the marketplace of ideas no one should fear
That somehow with a Latino tide the Reds will disappear
Save the felons and cartel, everyone else has a moral hardworking trait
Hopefully the Gang of Eight will help us solve this debate.

Korean Nuclear Test
A civilized world needs to say not one more especially when fanatics are pounding on the entrance door. Continuation of Iran and Korea's nuclear drive is an act of war for which regime should survive. Sanctions will not work, only a nuclear line drawn in the sand detonated if they do not follow our demands.

The genie was let out of the bottle in 45
Many thought the human race would never survive
Somehow the genies sought out those who were somewhat sane
U.K, Russia, and France eager to defend but escape the nuclear rain
India and China but all avoided the MADly dance
Now Pakistan awash in jihadist seas
Somehow we have avoided the nuclear winter to humanity seize
We now have Iran almost there and the sickest of the sick
North Korea ready to test its misguided nuclear stick
Sanctions have not and will not on  Korea or Iran ever work
Not when their leaders lack a sense of decency or are mentally beserk
Seals would be too hard but B-2s or Tridents not
Time to remove from Korea and Iran this insane rot
