A Commentary on Gun Control.
With the Recent, Sheer Number of Mass Shootings, What Is the Issue and How Can We Fix It?
This is the constant question that we ask ourselves every time after something horrible happens. I created a print piece as a commentary on the ongoing topic, using the transcript from This American Life's segment on gun control with NPR (National Public Radio). How could I utilize the words from the interview to create my own stance?
I took the stance that guns should be completely banned from society, removing the second amendment. Using the four interviews from the transcript, I created four (simulated) legal cases that argue four points that I made for each interview. The culmination of these arguments is a petition to remove the second amendment. I chose to work with a combination of newsprint, xerox paper, and butcher paper to make it look as close to a document as possible.
