Editorial Speech In the world these days, many schools and other places are having an issue about gunfire with mental kids. Due to this, many people have died and got injured, causing fear and tragedy for many families. Some people even move to other countries to avoid living under fear constantly just because of gun shootings. I personally think what Kent state university did to William Koberna, banning him from the school because of a tweet he uploaded about shooting the campus was a wrong thing to do. First of all, this was a stupid behaviour because all William Koberna did was upload a tweet.
He first starts by saying: “As I started forward practically the whole population of the quarter flocked out of the houses and followed me (287).” The crowd misunderstood him when he was holding the gun.

Moore first shows children outside weeping and crying outside of Columbine school then cuts to Charlton Heston holding a NRA rally to seem as though Carlton Heston had every intention on holding this rally straight after the Columbine massacre. Moore uses selective footage from Heston’s speech to give it a completely different meaning and starts the speech off with "I have only five words for you: 'from my cold, dead, hands...” Mike has led us to believe that Charlton Heston was saying this about the columbine massacre and frames him as a heartless and pro-gun violence supporter with no sympathy for the massacre prior to his rally in Columbine. He depicted that these were Charlton’s intentions all

They were tired of getting abused by their alcoholic father/husband. As the temperance movement gained support from the majority of the people in America, the congress passed the 18th amendment, banning the selling or buying of alcohol. At first, congress and the women supporting the temperance movement thought that everything would be solved once alcohol was banned.
The angry picketers start getting more and more numbers but also the racist community and also Klan members start to take part in what’s going on. This causes tension between the two groups, the coloreds can’t even eat there lunch in the park without bullets whizzing over their heads and have racial slurs yelled at them to “get out of town.” This leads to the blacks taking action by contacting the local authorities, yet the chief of police does nothing to protect the blacks. “Oh I don’t hear anything. I don’t hear anything at all.” (6-7) This is the words of the chief of the police who is also a racist, doing nothing in his power to stop the violence against the blacks. This eventually leads to huge mobs out side of the swimming pool with numbers of up to seventy five thousands who were clan supporters rallying against the blacks.
