Everyone from the parents of victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting to President Obama has their views on this topic. Since many mass murders have taken place in the United States of America, the citizens of the country have asked for stricter gun control laws. However, they are looking at this problem the wrong way. Making stricter gun control laws are not what we need to do; what we need to do is to find a way to protect and assist the people of the U.S.A. at the same time. What is a black market?
Moore Money Michael Moore is a prominent filmmaker who mainly bases his work around documentaries. Moore’s most famous piece of work is his influential documentary “Bowling for Columbine” however it contains insidious manipulation and ruthless misdirection of the audience. By Rene Zacchini “Bowling for Columbine” is a documentary based in the exploration of gun violence in American society. Moore uses the 1999 Columbine High School massacre as his hook to draw the viewers in by highlighting the death of young students by guns. However many viewers do not realise that documentaries are only a version of reality.
I wish I could understand so I could help prevent them from doing so. I also felt disturbed when Charlton Heston held a pro-gun rally after the Columbine shooting. He also showed up after the first grader was shot. Charlton Heston refused to say sorry for hosting the rallies after the horrifying events. It just shows how ignorant people are in the United States.
Bowling for Columbine Michael Moore’s award winning documentary of 2002, Bowling for Columbine, sets out to determine why America has such a high rate of domestic gun violence. Cunningly exploiting interview techniques when speaking with Marilyn Manson, Moore attacks the news media, suggesting a prevailing culture of fear which exists among the American public. Similarly, in another interview with Matt Stone, the director highlights the interviewee’s sense of trust and power, this time confronting the fatal flaws which are evident among the American government and education systems. The director conducts interviews in order to aid his portrayal of different groups and individuals. When Moore conducts interviews with people whom he intends to foreground as trustworthy and intelligent, the atmosphere is very relaxed and laid back.
Journal Entry (Personal Choice): Critical Reading Mayberry Author- Josh Sugarmann Page numbers 6 Summary- The article I read was called the NRA is Right it actually mainly shows how the author is against the right to bear arms. All he keeps bringing up is statistical rates that the NRA and police are applying to. He rather keep his own opinion to himself and just go off of what other people are say to try and show that guns are not the best choices to be held and used. He did give many true facts but also many of his own opinion. He mainly stayed on the fact that people kill them self and cause murder.
This shows he cares more about what is right for the people then his own personal benefits. The authors used very strong language quoted by Del. Davis throughout the paper such as, “the death penalty is flawed, ineffective and racially biased. And if we can get enough people to understand that, then in a few years we can repeal the death penalty in the United States once and for all” (Jealous & Braveboy, p. 11). Those sentences speak a lot about how powerful words can affect us.
In the documentary, Michael Moore claims that catalyzed fears for good or wrong reasons lead people to violence. Issues such as racism, unsustained fear and violence will be discussed in this essay. Living in fears… If there is one thing that unites Americans, it is the intense, and often deadly, fear of the other and even sometimes of each other. Michael Moore is taking a deep look into the American culture. Long after the years where they had to fight for their land and their freedom (by the way, at the expense of the American Indians), they seem to have become completely paranoid.
Should citizens be allowed to carry? Are the weapons themselves truly dangerous or is it the person wielding it? These questions and a slew of others have been pondered by both sides of this ongoing controversial debate but to no avail neither side has mutually agreed on answer to those questions or solutions to the issue itself. With steady increases in horrific mass murders such as the most recent Sandy Hook and the Denver Movie Theater shootings gun control has once again been thrown into public eye and with them becoming more frequent a solution to prevent such tragedies is demanded by the American people. But how can we accomplish such a feat?
Introduction- Bowling for Columbine *Moore’s documentary is well known therefore it must have some impact on society and therefore altering my personal perspective. *Perspective> gun laws are bad in America however guns should be allowed if they’re for protection. *After watching BFC> anti gun and feel as though the media is very manipulative and that the government is part of the influence on the gun culture.

Will strict laws limiting our rights to bear arms decrease the violence? These questions have sparked many debates, studies, and politicians attempting to pass extreme gun laws or even gun bans. The national conversations sparked by violent crimes involving guns have created many debates, and caused many boycotts of companies that side with either party. The NRA fuels the fires of these debates along with the Liberals and conservatives. Liberal point of view is to ban guns to control violence.
