The 113th Congress and the Newtown Parents

NRA Grip on Congress


Newtown parents joined the President on Air Force One,
Vowing they will never rest until their battle's won;
Flying down to Washington to lobby on the Hill;
Fighting for reforms the NRA would like to kill.

Universal background checks which, most of us agree,
Make good sense and is a measure we'd all like to see
May not pass the Senate which will, seemingly, ignore
Changes that the vast majority are asking for.

How did things get so messed up that it's the NRA
With the only voice that seems to ever get a say?
Newtown parents - those who've buried daughters, wives, and sons -
Speak with more authority on legislating guns.
