When you hear guns or gun violence what do you think of? The most common thought is gangsters, selling drugs and sometimes police brutality but this is not what is mainly being recorded or mentioned in statistics.
Gun violence is any violence taking place using a gun or any firearm which includes non-powder guns such as BB, air and pellet guns. There are many types of gun violence. These actions include homicide, suicide, suicide attempts, unintentional homicide, unintentionally shooting and police intervention. Guns should only be used under special permission such as if you are being stalked and you file a police report for this issue, then if you feel like it you should be loaned a gun under state laws and if the loaned firearm is used in any way other than what it is for than there should be consequences.
from guns relating to the total of deaths from vehicles. The number of deaths from guns are increasing while the death from vehicle are decreasing. Society needs to release that these firearms are hurting the future of this country and if the number don’t go 6 feet under then we do and there will be no future.
“Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.” Key Gun Violence Statistics* | Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, 2016, www.bradycampaign.org/key-gun-violence-statistics. Accessed 3 May. 2019.
The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence speaks about how many people are shot in murders, assaults, suicides and suicide attempts, unintentional shootings, and police intervention. Some of these actions leads to death. Forty children and teens survive from gunshot wounds. These same guns kill seven children and teens everyday and out of these seven, four are murdered and two kill themselves. 17,383 American teens and children varying from 0 years old to 19 are shot in one year on average.
These numbers that are just based on children is just outrageous. No one let alone children should be affected this much in only one year. These numbers need to be lowered. This information connects to my project because these stats on children will help people see that gun violence is a very big issue in our society and we need to do something about it now. They will see that the future of this country is being highly affect and there needs to be an end put to this because without them there is no future.
"Gun Violence Statistics." Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence. N.p., n.d. Web. 4 May 2019. <http://smartgunlaws.org/category/gun-studies-statistics/gun-violence-statistics/>.
Smartgunlaws.org talks about how innocent people are harmed more than intruders using self owned guns kept in the house for self-defense. These guns are sometime used for suicides and often are pulled on innocent people. When guns are being used for self-defence purposes, it highers the chance of being harmed than not owning a self-defence gun. $229 billion are going into firearm funding. People are also harmed with non-powder guns. These guns harm 9,252 people varying from 19 years old and younger.
The number of people that are harmed from the non-powder guns are really steep. There should not be this many people getting harmed from these type of guns let alone bullet guns. This connects to my project because this website describes all of its stats that relates to gun violence. This website really has easy to understand detailed explanation of their stats which make them a good source to use for my research.

American Progress is a site that gives statistics on Pennsylvania and the gun violence here. This site includes cases that involves gun violence. They include different occasion of when people are killed such and police officers. This website is a good resource because it includes accurate statistics.
I used this website because it gave different incidents of gun violence and helped my understand a deeper meaning of why gun violence is so bad. I gathered information from this website and used it in my first blog post. This website provided me with the stats I needed. This site also was not biased and just provided information.
"Gun Violence by the Numbers." EverytownResearch.org. N.p., 19 Jan. 2017. Web. 4 May. 2019. <https://everytownresearch.org/gun-violence-by-the-numbers/>.
Everytownresearch.org gives information about how America has more than 25 times the average of gun homicide rate than high-income countries. On average 93 Americans are killed in a day by guns and for every one person kill, two more are injured. Suicides are just as high. 62% of gun deaths are suicides varying from children to adults. Race also plays apart in this research. Black men are 14 times more likely than white men to be shot and killed with guns. To be relieved, background checks blacked nearly 3 million gun sales to prohibited people.
These rates that mostly focus on a general population are still pretty high. Both men and women and all races are affected by this. This just gives more reasons for many people to take a stance and make a change in this society. This source relates to my topic because this gives more overall stats than just focusing on a targeted group.
Printmaking is a type of art that is made by printing, most commonly made on paper. This process was created 105 AD and originated in China. Printmaking is made by drawing out a design, carving out the negative space with a carving tool, applying ink to the drawing then lastly transfer ink to a piece of paper. There are different form of printmaking but the main four that contrast with relief printing are called intaglio, lithography, serigraphy, and mono-printing. When you cut an image into metal it is called intaglio. Lithography is based on repelling chemicals of water or oil. Monoprint is one version that cannot be copied. Serigraphy is a silk screen printing that was invented in the 20th century. Serigraphy was invented in America. Printmaking also made an appearance in Europe in the 15th century. Printmaking is revolutionary. It adopts different techniques from different countries and they all make different looks. For example Chinese printmaking are usually black and white and focuses more on gradients and American printmaking is more colorful and shadow is often applied. Printmaking is important because the various processes that are a part of making a print is through printmaking.
This piece of artwork is artistically interesting because I notice the picture is black and grey print with pops of brown. I wonder why the artist chose these colors and how the mood or the emotion shown will change by using colorful colors. What if the two men wasn’t in the background wasn’t in this print, how will it change the picture’s meaning. What if there was a gunman in the picture, how would that change the meaning.
Negative space is the darker space in a picture or drawing. Positive space is the lighter part in a picture or a drawing.
How I found the negative space in my cut out is by noticing what color is darker and which color is lighter. Then I cut out the entire picture and put it onto another piece of construction paper. After that I I looked back at the original picture and peeled away the lighter cutouts and glued the darker ones onto the paper. Finally I connected the lighter cut outs to the darker ones comparing them to each other.
It helps and artist to see negative space because this allows them to know where to put what kind of lines and how to shade the drawing.
Seeing negative space does enhance a drawing because you get to see it from different point of views
La Hija de las Américas
Vengo desde muy lejos.
La hija con una hermana y un hermano.
Produto de todas partes,
Una persona con capas múltiple.
Saboreo el salado de la lágrima.
Cantando con dolor,
Hablando con precaución.
Bailando con alma,
Risas de recuerdos desde mi infancia.
Nosotros vengamos desde muy lejos,
Somos el producto de todas partes.
No somos africana pero Africa esta en nos.
Somos hijos de las Américas,
Sierra como Andrea
Kishara como Isabella
Rahmir como Ricardo (Ricky) Hernandez
Isayas como Jose Rodriguez
Ricardo goes missing after his boxing match scared that he might not win. Was his opponent behind the disappearance? Were his friends behind it? Watch to find out.
Musically talented describes who I am. I play viola and I wanted to express that in this slide so I included that in with the title. For this slide I used the rule of contrast. The rule of contrast is when you a have an ongoing theme and then you have something a different color that is on the other side of the color wheel. For example, if I choose to have a blue background and one thing that is red. The red would stand out from the blue background which would cause a powerful statement. I choose to include this rule because it made my title stand out and it becomes very eye catching.
