Freedom by Numbers

My gun and I meet. It’s for freedom. I twirl it. Wait for it to stop spinning. What is freedom? Kill myself. Freedom number 1. Or not. Freedom number 2. Choice. I’m no philosopher. I like my gun. I’m empowered. And the NRA.

It’s my right to have a gun. Be it. Freedom number 3. I get happy. Warm like. I’m a Texas Ranger. Fight crime. I’m Al Capone. Territorial. I strut bandy legged like Sheriff Smith. I’ll be Sheriff Smith. Freedom number 4. Fight for justice. I believe in guns.

Thou shalt not kill. Wrote Moses. A simple command. For the flock. I’m simple. Guns for every good sheep. Guns in good hands. For the righteous. Solving problems. Freedom number 5. I’m scared. Violence comes and goes.

In the culture. In movies. In video games. My right to self-defence. Freedom number 6. There are bad people out there. When I shoot I could be right. I could be wrong. Could be a hero. I am democracy. Freedom number 7.
