No guns in our schools

No guns in our schools

A Poem by Coyote Poetry

Thoughts and words about guns. Old wise President said. "When fear take over a country. Freedom will be lost."


No guns in our schools.



No guns in our school.

A new year is here

Time to make resolutions and wishes.

My fourth child will graduate next year.

No security guards with guns in their schools.

USA is still the land of the free and the brave.

I fought for freedom. I have no fear of going to work and living in my world.

I believe we cannot be govern by fear. If fear control our world. We have nothing left.

Children must be able to dream and never allow fear to control their thoughts and their world.

If we allow fear to overtake us. Security men with guns roaming our schools. We allowed terror to overtake us.

Be logical. Use proper security and insure only people who need to be are allowed in the schools.

First we will have security guards. Then high fences and then barb wire. Schools are not prison camps or war zones.

What are we teaching our children? Don’t listen to NRA foolish voices. Laws are needed for automatic weapons. Most big cities have written laws in effect for many years.

There is no perfect system. It is a hard world for many. USA need opportunity and help for the people in need. When a child cried out for help. Someone need to be there. Parent must show concern and the school system at all levels need to be alert to possible problems.

                    Let's pray

Let’s pray.

Let’s use logic and wisdom.

Foolish men need to be quiet.

Children need to celebrate each new day.

We cannot live in fear. This is the USA.

Home of 300 million people.

Terror cannot control us. Teach the children well. They are the future. Show them the world is good and the possibilities are unlimited.

A new year is coming. I pray for peace. All our Soldiers on the USA soil.

I pray the new wars are on sickness and starvation in our world.

I hope and pray for peace in the Middle East.

I pray every child had a safe place to rest and food to eat.

Children are the future. They must be fearless.

It is time for forgiveness, love and healing. Not a lot of time left if we seek war and violence.

Let the children sing, dance and dream in our world.

When we need a armed security guard in our school. We allowed fear to kill the desire of freedom and hope.

Author's Note

Coyote Poetry
Children must be able to dream. Live a life with no fear. Too many people who will profit voices are loud and strong. Time for real U.S people to stand strong. World is a dangerous place. But can allow fear to direct us. Life is to be lived and celebrated.

My take? Nobody needs assault weapons but soldiers and police. To give them the edge on bad guys or the enemy. A thirty round magazine is big enough for anyone to protect their home or for target practice. But aside from those laws we need personal responsibility. When your firearm is not in use it should be in a lock box, a gun safe or at the very least, have a locking trigger guard on it or the firing pin removed. These are simple measures to promote gun safety. Remember, the guns used in the recent school shooting did not BELONG to the shooter...they belonged to his mother whom he murdered and STOLE the guns from. We need to store ammunition separate from our firearms as well in locked cabinets or safes. These small things are links in a chain...they do not seem important by themselves but together they will be of a great help in thwarting criminals, psychopaths and would be killers from gun violence. I own guns and I practice these steps. It's simple common sense. I do believe in the right to keep and bear arms but I believe that right should be tempered with common sense and responsibility.

its always reassuring to listen to the voice of reason when i read one of your pieces my friend.. i agree with you totally.. if anything maybe we could simply make the doors bullet proof and you can only open them from the inside.. of course any new measures would require money and politicians dont like spending money on logical things.. the trend in the world is to ban guns, completely. I guess most other countries are so much older and are just too sick and tired anymore of the needless violence of humanity.. we're a new and young country.. i hope we never are a country without guns.. but its sensless tragedies like the one at Newtown that bring change to a newer more violent kind of violence.

Fact: 15 of the 25 worst mass shootings in the last 50 years took place in the United States.

Fact: Of the 11 deadliest shootings in the US, five have happened from 2007 onward.

Great piece Coyote.. thanks for being such a caring human being.. we're all very fortunate to have you here in our midst. Happy New Year to you and your's.

So much tragedy, it seems to never end. It is so tiring, I just wish it would all stop. It just seems odd that the human species has just unending hatred for each other. Very good poem with lots and lots to agree with.
