Stand your ground

Yes I'm a Christian
And I own a gun
If I'm called for duty
I'll serve and not run
Bullies are everywhere
They abuse the weak
The law is behind me
I have no duty to retreat
They're on the Internet
Neighborhoods and schools
How much can a victim take
Before they lose their cool
Some people suffer
From years of abuse
Others are tougher
And face the accused
You can stand up
Or you can back down
Anywhere I go
I'm standing my ground
