This is a perfect and sickening example of how someone will twist something
to fit their agenda.

Excuse me, P. the Cleric - this is not a poem advocating the use of guns.
The message of this poem - in its ORIGINAL language - isn't to "fight" but
to "speak" out for those who are persecuted.

Maybe if that happened, there wouldn't be any need for guns.
