Why carry a gun?

W. Tate wrote this original love ballad

If I could plant a tiny seed of love,
in the garden of your heart
Would it grow to be a great big love one day,
or would it die and fade away
Would you care for it and tender it with care,
till the time that we should part.
If I could plant a tiny seed of love,
in the garden of your heart.

I wrote this version to all supporters of the National Rifle Association (NRA)

If I could plant a tiny little doubt,
in a recess of your mind
Would it grow to be a stronger thought one day,
Or do you think the NRA
Will always ‘pull your strings’ and tell you what to do,
On what guns and pistols ‘do’ for you,
Or could it be that you might one day say
No, it’s time to throw the cursèd things away….

……Hope springs eternal…
