The devil danced in broad daylight
as angels bore the innocents--
for only Satan could take glee
in such a senseless tragedy.
The wailing echoes through the night,
yet there will be no recompense;
no words that stave collective pain
nor set the broken right again.
Borne in our hearts, the sound, the sight
of these unspeakable events:
a gaping hole that can’t be filled.,
an aching heart that won’t be stilled.
For “Right to Bear” now see the cost--
how many babies must be lost?

Just a note: I have many responsible hunters and sportsmen among my family and friends. I respect them and do not condemn gun ownership in general. However, in my personal opinion, I feel there is a need to limit automatic weaponry. These weapons were made for hunting people. Our forefathers did not foresee these weapons when they wrote the laws. I've heard the arguments, both pro and con. Yet when events like this happen, and become more commonplace as time goes on, something needs to change.
