and youngsters and all of the issues the gun would by no means have    the gun heard
extra bullets   the gun heard he’s down!   the gun climbed out of the closet
the gun put its palms on its head        the gun walked outdoors       the gun
noticed the cameras    the gun hugged its sobbing mom   and cried into her
arms    the gun heard ideas and prayers    the gun heard Second Amend-
    the gun heard lone wolf    the gun texted its buddy once more    the gun
waited for a message    the message by no means got here
