“Not My Child” isolates the argument about gun control and mass shootings. Mainly, school shootings. The phrase “Not My Child” is a phrase which plays on both sides of the argument. “Not my child”, it will never happen to my child and “Not My Child!”, I don’t want it to be my child, are the two sides of this slippery phrase. But as a community we need to recognize all people, young and old, are our responsibility to keep safe. Rather it be school shootings or mass shootings at an outdoor concert. They are all our child.
“Not My Child” breaks down the argument of the second amendment. The pirated gun sounds of the musket and AR15 blurs from the sounds of guns into a march cadence as the children of United States wave their flags and parade in celebration of their country (images are also stolen from the Internet as seen by the copyright watermark.) The central video emanates the sounds of war, this is what I can only imagine the sound of an active shooting if I was to be in one of these situations. Boldly flashing throughout in a western stylized font are the words, Not My Child, hearkening to our country’s cowboy mentality and the wild west.
“Not My Child” forces the viewer to contemplate what kind of society we are in and what direction we want to take our country’s safety. Is our future the future with bullet proof book bags and guns in the hands of all people as we shoot it out like a western movie? Or do we want a society where all our children can be safe and not worry the person next to you is the evil that we fear.
