Recently I went to a movie with friends and family and every single trailer, except for a French film dealing with life issues, was extremely violent. I’m certainly not a prude by any means, but it was hard to sit there with a theater full of teenagers not wondering how all the violence, guns, knives — any weapon for that matter — was used to kill or severely hurt others without any consequence.
We live in a media-created individualistic society where violence ensues every day and, sadly, is even rewarded. Later we wonder why such horrible things happen and want to outlaw guns. I’m not saying anyone needs semi-automatic weapons, but we must seriously look at what we put on the screen and TV every single day. How does that not affect anyone?
