The Gun Prayer

Our father, Wayne LaPierre

Who art in National Rifle Association Headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia

Hallowed be thy Second Amendment

Please forgive our transgressions

To dare believe we can change or curb our obsession with guns

To offer our thoughts and prayers to the victims of our violent culture

(But nothing else)

Lead us to shrug our shoulders at every new massacre of innocents

As we chalk up more murders to the cost of living in a free society

And lead us not to pass laws which will take away our weaponry

For we all know that every American gun owner

Is always and forever forthrightly a law-abiding citizen

Who will never lose their mind,

Swear allegiance to our nation’s enemies,

Or just fail to overcome the thrill of killing others 

For personal glory or satisfy their own reckless control issues

And most importantly lead us not to believe anything but YOUR twisted

Interpretation of the Second Amendment

For the right to bear arms enables yourself and the NRA

Access to unlimited material wealth and riches

For thine is the kingdom where common sense does not exist

The power over our Congress

And the glory of the NRA on high.

Amen, and pass the ammunition.

(Thank you for reading.  The preceding is a work of satire and not to be construed as an endorsement of violent acts in public.)

That NRA bastard was on TV this morning and I literally jumped for the remote to mute the sound before changing the channel.

That sounds like a close call indeed, Bob!

I like to think the best satire comes with a sting. Thank you, Spo.
