Guns in Ads in New York City: August 6, 2012
Yet another gun massacre.
In the wake of another mass shooting here in the United States there is growing discussion as to whether producers of violent movies, television shows, video games and more... and actors who make a living portraying gun-wielding characters in those productions - sometimes again and again and again... and critics/reviewers who praise those violent productions rather than comdemn them... and still others who profit from their association with these same productions need to second guess their actions. Even stop it.
And so, what was my reaction to all this? Some picture-taking, and this Hub.
A few days after the shooting in Wisconson...
less than a month after the worst mass killing in the U.S... in Colorado...
and a year after the mass shooting in my former hometown, Tucson, AZ...
I decided to see how many Hollywood film or other ads I would be exposed to while spending a short time in Manhattan.
In only a few subway stations and three sections of the city, below are the results.
What does it mean? You decide.
The ads I spotted showing guns.
AND ONE MORE !!!
You, your family, friends, neighbors, others.
Where you work, live and play, how many ads with guns are you exposed to on a daily basis? And not only on the streets.
