One More Gun

I thought that this song needed re-posting at the top of our list of songs as it continues to be a timely statement on America’s infatuation with guns.  It was originally posted August 2nd, 2016, and is in our continuing tradition of writing about things that are “Foul” in our world.

One More Gun – Greg Hafner

What if we kept just one lethal weapon,
From the hands of death and fear,
Would it have saved the innocent children,
Shot down by guns each year?

Random agendas, and hate in their eyes,
Will purchase a gun to empower their lies.
A moment of anger, out comes cold steel,
Shots are fired, the terror is real.
Can we pretend, guns aren’t a disease?
Is the gun in your hand, what Jesus sees?

Convinced that guns hold no evil intent,
Why are their weapons at a public event?
Disturbed, misguided, confused, in pain.
Let’s give them a gun and see how it ends.
Struggling with conscience, but he has the right,
To use a weapon, to shoot up the night.
The beast is loosed, let out of it’s cage,
Dozens lay dying, the victims of rage.
Can we pretend, guns aren’t a disease?
Is the gun in your hand, what Jesus sees?
One more gun….

What if we kept just one lethal weapon,
From the hands of death and fear,
Would it haved saved the innocent children,
Shot down by guns each year?

Guns used in killing, a justified price.
So gun corporations, can profit and thrive.
They want a gun, in everyone’s hand,
Guns kill our children, family, and friends.
We must teach our daughters, we must teach our sons,
To take life much faster, using a gun.

Will one more gun, make it better?
Will one more gun, make it right?
Will one more gun, create a solution?
Will one more gun, calm the night?
Will one more gun, solve the problem?
Will one more gun, stop all the hate?
Will one more gun, make you happy?
Will one more gun, make everyone safe?

Will one more gun, make you happy?
