the better good

why

do we struggle

to set limits on guns

why must they be a right and not a priviledge

as New Zealand finds the courage to quickly change their laws

their country stands together a light and example in the darkness of our world

saying no to an endless stream of weapons into the hands of anyone who cares to buy

the right to bear arms may be in our constitution but the need to do so was a revolution

I ask you why must we insist on rhetoric, division, sides and battles of ideals

the revolution must be in our hearts to stand as citizens together

putting aside our rights and leaving our history

setting better limits for the common good

of our fellow Americans
