1. Kick with absolute agreement.

Our gun loving lawmakers will never do anything until they see every single bullet wound on every single body that is murdered or injured. In their face. Do you see this blood? Do you see this child? Do you see the damage? Do you see the horror? Do you see the parents grief? Do you see that this could be your child? Do you see that the killer could be your child because you see nothing wrong with guns? Do you have any compassion? Do you have any soul? Do you have any courage? Are you totally empty?

2. The same people that want us

to look at pictures of aborted fetuses.

K&R for the OP.

5. Then they cannot look away and ignore the evidence. Never let them sterilize the images.

 

There are already scenes out there that have been hidden under the banner of “too graphic”

6. They see pictures of happy school kids.

I hate to be so blunt but they (lawmakers) need to see pictures of those dead and murdered school kids.

One of the Sandy Hook mothers argued with people because she wanted an open casket for her son. The people against it were saying "he has the lower half of his face blown off". That is exactly why she wanted an open casket, to show what happened to him and to not let it be forgotten. To not let him be forgotten.


Edit: I leave that option 100% up to the parents on whether it goes beyond lawmakers and into the public.

9. Like Emmett Till's mother.

She also insisted on an open casket so that people could see what they had done to her son.

10. Yes, Just like her. It takes courage and a huge amount of love for your child to put something

so horrendous out there for the world to see. I cannot imagine the additional grief that must have put her through.

8. wonderful idea....

No more sanitization. No more bubble. Show the aftermath for what it is. Hold their heads and make them look at the destruction caused by their ridiculous hobby and irrational fears. I've always though the same about war imagery for exactly the same reason.

11. Excellent idea

Horrible, graphics images of the war in Vietnam were shown on TV in the 1960s. I remember seeing the photo of the little girl running and crying, the old woman in the rabbit hutch (Manson gang photo), the execution of a north Vietnamese prison by a shot to the head, a Buddhist monk setting himself on fire. Things we see only in movies these days - aerial views of burned out jungles and villages, people on the ground fleeing, grizzly images that would be too graphic for movies today - I remember each and every one of them before the age of 12.

It isn't pleasant and there will be many complaints, but the damage that guns do should be seen like the pictures of fetuses paraded around on the back of trucks are. Sauce for the goose!
