Guns
By John Cannon

“Ironically, it was a quest for immortality that led to the invention of the deadliest weapon before the arrival of the atomic bomb. Experimenting with life-lengthening elixirs around A.D. 850, Chinese alchemists instead discovered gunpowder. Their explosive invention would become the basis for almost every weapon used in war from that point on, from fiery arrows to rifles, cannons and grenades.” (from LiveScience ®)

In the past millennium,
and right now,

An uncountable number
of words

have been spoken,
written
and screamed

about guns,
gun violence
and gun rights.

In the words of Loren D. Estleman,
“You can hide a lot under a wordslide.”

Here is the simple truth
in 7 words:

Guns start more trouble than they stop.

graveyard

diamonds and guns

wedding gowns and guns

free guns

liquor and guns
