I was raised in a home with a gun,

for protection and target shooting fun.

My father taught me safety and respect,

a lifetime mindset, still in effect.

*

As a police officer, firearms training increased,

with qualifications every six months, at least.

My issued sidearm was an important tool of trade,

fastened securely in my leather holster, it stayed.

*

I have supported the American right to bear arms,

if changed, it would raise many alarms.

Concealed carry should be allowed for protection,

the government must not initiate its retraction.

*

However, the rising incident of school violence,

raises the issue of assault rifles, it’s not rocket science.

Perhaps some type of regulation is needed for AR-15’s

let’s keep assault weapons away from adults and teens.

*

If we fail to find solutions, for this growing national rage,

schools will be nothing more than a protective cage.

Rights versus common sense, is the priority of the day,

without a balance, innocent lives will continue to pay.

*

Please pray for the victims of our school shootings.
