Haiku Sticky #510

This past weekend, with two mass shootings within 24 hours, most people were shook to their cores. Still there are those who refuse to accept responsibility for their words. There are also those who say talking about gun control at such a time of grief is merely political opportunism. However, with more mass shootings in 2019, than the number of days expired thus far, when is there a time when someone affected by gun violence is not grieving?

On Facebook, many shared a poem, from three years ago, written by Brian Bilston, "America is a Gun." Read it here, if you somehow missed it.

the gun defines us
will our hearts, too,
turn to steel
