Never one to shy away from controversy, famed movie maker Michael Moore this week suggested that a good way to take control of the gun debate would be to release photos of the young Sandy Hook victims.
The Washington Post wrote that Moore wants the public to see the photos because other horrific photos, such as the photos of the murdered Emmett Till and 1965 Selma Ala. riots, influenced the outcome of the civil right battle. Moore wrote that the day the crime scene photos of the Newtown Tragedy are released would be the day the gun control debate comes to an end. He predicts that someone will release the photos at some point.
Others, however, are not so sure it will happen. The Washington Post, reported that releasing the photos would be in violation of the decency standards of the main stream media and therefore unlikely to happen. The alternative media has, at least up to this point, treated the Sandy Hook community with extreme sensitivity and is unlikely to do anything that would be contrary to what that community wants. The parents of the children are reportedly not impressed with the suggestion. Moore, however, believes that at some point it will happen.
Do you think that the Sandy Hook crime scene photos will ever be released and if they are, will it result in the demise of the NRA?
