firearm-handgun-revolver-gun-53351.jpegChildren are more likely to die swimming in a pool than being shot accidentally with a gun in their home.

Your silent pleas and dissipating bubbles do not inspire a national outrage.
Your footnote passing only invites a “What a shame”
as the neighbors read the news.
“I guess the parents just weren’t watching.”
