you watch western flicks of shootouts in the wild wild west back in the 60's
in ny, you have clowns that make wild cowboys look like rookies
there is a shootout here, there is a shootout there, when does it end
does it end with more lives taken before their time?
does it end with more cops taking it to the streets like the riots in L.A?
does it end when regular people become so vulnerable that they become violent themselves?
mentalities is at a survival mode to either kill or to be kill
hearts racing faster than someone trying to win a gold medal in london
muscles tighten after sounds of bullets permeating through a shatter glass window
emotions run wild than hulkamania
mouth is nummer than a person catching frost bites in the snow
no this is not a show
end gun violence with community unification
end gun violence with education
end gun violence with community center and afterschool foundation
end gun violence with law enforcement presentation
let's win this war without guns, instead, let's win with movements that represents non-violence

This is a creative piece of work. It does a good job reflecting on how guns throughout the years have affected our soceity, from our wild wild west days until the present. Even today gun violence is becoming a huge problem and hopefully, as you mentioned in your poem, we will have resources that will rid our streets of its guns. Great job and keep it up!!!!!!
