It cannot be denied that the serial killer kills. But killing has a few different meanings. You can wreck your car and be a killer. The FBI's defination of murder is “willful, nonnegligent, killing of one human being by another”. Serial killers and murders have completely consumed the American culture and law enforcement.
If you analyze the photo you will notice that gun violence is not the subject of just one area in Philadelphia, it has taken over the whole city As you see below it is a recurring issue, one hand to the other. From the easy access of guns which gun laws provide; that leads to the death of innocent people which results in even more guns. The reason more guns is the final result is because people the innocent lives lost’ family members result to gun violence also. I lived right next door to the mother of a police officer who died in the
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.
Michael Moore handled the documentary very well. He had well worded questions and responses that really nailed the people he was interviewing. Michael Moore really knows how to persuade and talk. For example, he convinced Kmart to stop selling ammunition to handguns and assault weapons. Another subject he spoke about in the documentary was “Why does America have so many more gun murders than the rest of the world?” He spoke of many different possible reasons, but never really found the real reason.
Spike Lee’s films, deal with different aspects of the black experience, they are innovative and controversial even within the black community. Spike Lee refuses to be satisfied with presenting blacks in their acceptable stereotypes. His characters are three-dimensional and often vulnerable to moral criticism. Lee’s collection of films with the theme racism, stood out for me because he is more interested in subverting the status quo of black history, so it isn’t just typical films which show racism. I also liked Lee’s intimate describing of his experience, and how some of his films had interesting elements to them because he was part of the black society.
There are people who are mentally ill that are able to purchase guns with the intent of killing people. Laws for purchasing guns should be strengthened. A simple background check should not be the only thing in the way of a person purchasing weapons. The National Rifle Association was founded in 1871 as a sporting and hunting association, they supported most gun control regulation for its first 100 years. Now the National Rifle Association members are in favor requiring an extensive background check, and “69 percent support requiring all gun sellers at gun shows to conduct criminal background checks of the people buying guns; 59 percent favor mandatory registration of handguns; and 77 percent favor a waiting period for the purchase of a handgun.” All of these are would make it harder for people to purchase guns and allow proper documentation for every gun.
Twelve people dead and fifty-eight wounded at the Century movie theater in Aurora this weekend for the finale to Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. Revenge is easily understood when an incident such as the Aurora movie theater massacre occurs. Emotions from people are boiling and rampant. Revenge is one action from emotions that might be considered by family, friends, and certain political activist groups around the nation. As a result of James Holmes’s actions victims are hurting because of his violence, those victims dead or alive were innocent to this mans crimes and the primary suspect remains alive.
What does motivate people to kill someone with a gun? There has been many gun violence throughout history. “Guns and Violence” by an unknown author states that “blame is placed on everything from violence in the media, video games, and music to the popularity of gun ownership and what some feel are overly lenient gun laws”. This author believes that the United States is facing a gun-violence crisis. From what I have heard on CNN or FOX News, I also believe that the United States has an unbelievable numbers of murders.
The effective gun control measures are a boon to law-abiding citizens and reinforce the constitutional rights [Pros and Cons of Gun Control]. The only function of a gun is to kill. Legally held guns are stolen and end up in the hands of criminals, who would have greater difficulty in obtaining such weapons if firearms were less prevalent in society. Guns also end up in the hands of children, leading to tragic accidents and terrible disasters such as the Columbine High School massacre in the U.S.A. Sometimes even normal-seeming registered gun owners appear to go mad and kill, as tragically happened at Hungerford and Dunblaine in the U.K. Quite simply, guns are lethal and the fewer people have them the better.
All have been the site of tragic gun violence with one difference. Most of those killed by guns in Chicago were killed by illegally acquired guns, unlike those used at Newtown and Aurora, which were purchased legally. All across America people are dying as a result of gun violence; is stricter gun-control laws the answer? Pro-gun advocates are quick to use gun murders, like those in Chicago, along with the Second Amendment as a reason to ease gun control laws. (Robertson, R).
