Same Mistake This Time

Thank you Gabby Giffords
former Democratic Representative
of Arizona

for your gun control advocacy

which you now do
outside of Congress

through the non-profit
Americans for Responsible Solutions.

Thank you Congress
for another year

of serving the for-profit
Americans for Reprehensible Stalemates

who started 2015
with a "bang"

by posting a list of
"10 Handguns to Own Before You Die"

on its parent organization website

Since Giffords retired
two years ago

there have been nearly
one hundred more
school shootings.

Obama called you "a hero"

but just like
Tina Turner said

maybe "We don't need
another hero."
