The Clock

There have been a lot of deaths by guns in America so I’m going to bite the bullet and talk about it. I wish there was a magic bullet to keep guns off the streets and back on the hunting grounds where they belong. But there seems to b no bullet-proof answer to the problem.

If I were to demand that guns be outlawed, I would be sweating bullets that many would argue against me. Maybe some heroic congress person will take the bullet and campaign on the issue. But there seems to be no silver bullet on the issue. It comes down to humans who probably need to be able to run faster than a speeding bullet.

Don’t shoot me for my thoughts. Someone has to pull the trigger on this pressing social menace. Remember it’s not guns that kill people, it’s bullets. And don’t make me create a bullet-point presentation.
