Do you think showing images of the carnage of a mass shooting, especially involving children, would have an impact on the possibility of gun control laws being passed? Ethics & Morality
I'm a father of 2 and I'm so tired of hearing sirens near my children's schools and wondering if there was a school shooting. I'm also a teacher. Every time a school shooting happens, my colleagues and I are on edge for the next week or so, hoping we don't encounter a copycat shooting at our school.
After every shooting, the media shows beautiful pictures of the people lost. It's heartbreaking to see, but it's reassuring to see they were loved while they were with us.
I sometimes wonder, if we took the same approach as Emmitt Till's mother, would it be a more effective catalyst for change in our gun laws.
I know it would be horrific, but how is having a mass shooting every couple of days not equally horrific?
