I know one thing.If it were up to me, I'd take away the guns.

If It Were Up to MeWords and Lyrics by:Cheryl Wheeler

Maybe it's the movies,
maybe it's the books
Maybe it's the bullets,
maybe it's the real crooks
Maybe it's the drugs,
maybe it's the parents
Maybe it's the colors everybody's wearin
Maybe it's the President,
maybe it's the last one
Maybe it's the one before that, what he done
Maybe it's the high schools,
maybe it's the teachers
Maybe it's the tattooed children in the bleachers
Maybe it's the Bible,
maybe it's the lack
Maybe it's the music,
maybe it's the crack
Maybe it's the hairdos,
maybe it's the TV
Maybe it's the cigarettes,
maybe it's the family
Maybe it's the fast food,
maybe it's the news
Maybe it's divorce,
maybe it's abuse
Maybe it's the lawyers,
maybe it's the prisons
Maybe it's the Senators,
maybe it's the system
Maybe it's the fathers,
maybe it's the sons
Maybe it's the sisters,
maybe it's the moms
Maybe it's the radio,
maybe it's road rage
Maybe El Nino, or UV rays
Maybe it's the army, maybe it's the liquor
Maybe it's the papers,
maybe the militia
Maybe it's the athletes,
maybe it's the ads
Maybe it's the sports fans, maybe it's a fad
Maybe it's the magazines,
maybe it's the internet
Maybe it's the lottery,
maybe it's the immigrants
Maybe it's taxes, big business
Maybe it's the KKK and the skinheads
Maybe it's the communists,
maybe it's the Catholics
Maybe it's the hippies,
maybe it's the addicts
Maybe it's the art,
maybe it's the sex
Maybe it's the homeless,
maybe it's the banks
Maybe it's the clearcut,
maybe it's the ozone
Maybe it's the chemicals,
maybe it's the car phones
Maybe it's the fertilizer,
maybe it's the nose rings
Maybe it's the end, but I know one thing.If it were up to me,
I'd take away the guns.

7. I don't happen to know the song, but I've been saying for some time now

that we should confiscate guns. I am heartily sick of all the excuses given not to do so. We're told that guns make you safer. Yeah, that mom whose 9 year old son shot her today was a whole lot safer because of the shotgun in the house.

Not to mention the mom whose 3 year old took a gun out of her purse and shot himself was definitely safer with that gun. Oh, and how about the 2 year old who found the gun in his mom's purse when they were out shopping and shot her. Yeah, definitely safer.

And where are all the good guys with the guns the gun apologists say are the answer? The closest we have to that is Kendrick Castillo who threw himself on the shooter yesterday in Colorado. He's dead. He'd still be alive if it weren't for the gun. All of you who think guns are the answer need to ponder that.

I am so fucking sick and tired of all the excuses for guns in this country. Meanwhile, other countries take real steps to take guns away after recent gun murders and you know what? It works. There haven't been additional mass murders with guns. Isn't that just a bit of a coincidence?

We are NOT safer with guns. We are vastly less safe.

8. Melt them all down and use the steel for offshore sea-life habitats.

New Zealand, unburdened by something like our laughably our-of-date 2nd Amendment, worked out their national tragedy by declaring that military-style rifles are illegal.

Thatís how smart countries do it.

10. Or to help rebuild our crumbling infrastructure.

Think of all that steel that could be used to reinforce our highways and subways.
