Bowling For Columbine

Bowling For Columbine
1. I think media has a great impact on how people behave. The media is defined as listening to music, watching TV, movies, reading magazines, and searching the internet. I think when people here about certain things in songs, or see things in movies or on television it has an effect on them. If there is violence in a TV show or on the news kids can think that?s cool to do and do it. A lot of movies show fighting and violence and it effects people and they may do what they see. Television in the home is the greatest source of visual violence for children. Video games expose young children to a level of violence unimaginable. The news also creates fear .
2. I agree with Michael Moore?s message in the documentary. I think there is way to much violence in our society, I also think there should be a restriction on guns. Children in our society today, see violence in their schools, on TV , their neighborhoods, and their homes. The daily new is rife with reports of child molestations and abductions. War in foreign lands along with daily reports of murder, rape and robberies also heighten a child?s perception of potential violence.

3. I don?t think the documentary was biased at all . I think Michael Moore showed both to sides every story he told about . He focused on both sides of the story rather than just one.

4. The nra Civil Rights Defense fund was established by the nra board of directors in 1978 to become involved in court cases establishing legal precedents in favor of gun owners. To accomplish this the fund provides legal and financial assistance to selected individuals and organizations defending their right to keep and bear arms.

5. I do not think it was appropriate fir the nra to arrive in Denver for a convention after the Columbine massacre occurred. I think people were still in mourning and alls they wanted was to be left alone. The people in Denver probably wanted nothing but to ban guns, and here comes the N R A thinking everyone should have the right to have a gun in order to protect themselves. I think the N R A should have waited a great deal of time before going to Denver for a convention.

6. States with the largest increases in gun ownership also have the largest drops in violent crimes. Thirty-one states now have such laws?called ?shall-issue? laws. These laws allow adults the right to carry concealed handguns if they do not have a criminal record or a history of significant mental illness. In our country a lot of people who do not have gun permits carry guns. I think we in the United States have clash in the races. We are the most diverse, and we have the most deaths . Gangs are formed to protect one group from another , which in that case cause a lot of deaths. I think other Countries focus on equality for their people more than our government does. I also think our Government needs to focus on what?s important rather than guns, drugs, and violence.
7. I think the government would not try to cause you fear but that?s what they are doing . Alls the media ever talks about is violence. When you turn on the news and you hear about a burglar going around, or a shooting at a school of course you are going be afraid. I think instead of focusing on that they should focus on important things .

8. Dick Clark was largely criticized for hiring poor, unwed mothers to work long hours in his chain of restaurants for little pay. I think Dick Clark felt badly, that he was doing this and I don?t think he wanted the world to see what a bad man he was . If I was Dick Clark I would have done the same thing, he was definitely ashamed of what he was doing, and felt it was wrong. He didn?t want others to look at him as a bad man because of this.

9. I think every American should have the right to have a gun for their own protection under circumstances. I think their should be an age limit for people who would like to purchase guns. People who have a criminal record or who have mental illnesses should not be able to use a gun. I think that when each person purchases a gun there should be a chip inside of the gun that reads their fingerprints, in that case only the gun owner will be able to use the gun.

10. I think to decrease the amount of gun violence in the U.S their should be restrictions on guns. I think they should only be legal to people who do not have a criminal record , and should be at least 21 years of age. I also think they should cut out gun violence in TV, movies and in music. I also think the news should also focus on other things beside violence.
