    ALL IS ABOUT VIOLENCE

    This film made by Michael Moore involves a journey where the author try to find answers of why people buy guns and how in some cases have affected innocent people. It exposes how dangerous is to use guns with or without a permission. There is an example of the little girl of six years old that was shot by another child with no reason, and here is where a lot of questions arise, why that little child had a gun, why nobody inside the school noted or control that, or coming to the present why parents don’t know what their children used to have, or most important why should happen terrible situations to can apply new rules and punishments. In other hand, there is another example of the two teenagers that were shot, and make guilty K-mart as the weapon manufacturing, so is it possible that you can consider that the origin of all is the place that sell this, are they really guilty, or it is guilty the person who buy it with a dangerous purpose. In the film he also travels to Canada, and make a comparison with United States, it is amazing that people in Canada do not lock their doors, and be so calm, in contrast with this country where people is worried about to be protected also with guns. Canada has the same access to many of the same weapons, but do not have the same violent culture. Moore also makes some interviews, and a lot of time he pushes the people to say more than they feel, that’s the way I see it. Here is when I note that Moore is very subjective with the film, because it is more about his feelings, and of course about people that in a moment suffered with any accident, but I think that to make a kind of film like this he should be more objective. There is also a cartoon about the Usa’s colonization that is a very big example of the violence in this country showing that it is not only now but also since a lot of years ago. So could it be possible that at this time with a gun control we could stop violence, that maybe a new president could stop it or at least apply more control over the use of weapons. Maybe that was the message of Michael Moore to be more conscientious of the world where we are living now and how to improve it.
