On May 22nd 2022, 19 children and two teachers were shot dead at Robb Elementary School, Uvalde, Texas. It was the 27th school shooting in the US this year.
A ‘Found’ poem, extracted from Trump’s NRA conference speech in Houston, a few days later.
‘Gun Free Zone’
There’s no sign more inviting to a mass killer. Most dangerous place. Doesn’t it sound wonderful? But it’s not. ‘Gun Free Zone’ They look at that sign and they say, ‘That’s where I’m going’. Every school needs armed officers and trained teachers. Let them CONCEAL CARRY. It would be so much better – so much more effective even from a cost standpoint. In the absence of a member of law enforcement there is no one you would rather have nearby than an armed expertly trained member of the NRA. Defending our second amendment is about defending law and order and life. We have no higher goal than to reduce violent crime. Before the sun had even set on that horrible day of tragedy, we witnessed politicians seeking to exploit the tears of sobbing families, to increase their own power. (Ends with a little dance)
