In October of 2002, John Allen Muhammad, a Gulf War veteran, and his teenaged accomplice, Lee Boyd Malvo, preyed on the Washington, D.C. area for twenty-two days. The two snipers shot thirteen people, killing ten and critically wounding three others, using a Bushmaster .223 caliber high-powered rifle. Considering the gun crazy population in the United States, this particular weapon model will now undoubtedly become a much sought-after collectible.
I cannot believe that if the NRA just happens to contribute money to a politician or to a political party that they really don't want something in return!
"BANG BANG Gotcha!!!"
To Hunters, Gun Collectors & Other Straight Shooters
We all may know the Truth someday,
ĎBout Weapons used to maim and slay;
That Congressmen have sold away,
Their Souls, for Votes, to NRA.
Assaulting Rifles on the Loose,
We wonít cease-fire or call a Truce;
The Reasonís clear, one can deduce,
They're out to turn the Deer to Mousse!
Oh Snipers cause such awful Pain,
So many hurt; so many slain;
The Motive Rage, Chaos or Gain,
More Fear and Angst; itís just insane!
Mad Massacres; against the Rule;
Where sad Kids kill their Friends at School;
To play big Shot, perhaps, the Fool,
When will we learn, damn, Guns are cruel!
