There are plenty of inspirational people whom I would love to hear and know more about in this world and therefore, I am a little surprised to see an advertisement about this man and his daughter who make weapons and boast about it. It is a kind of reality show where weapons of any kind are made and then tried out on open land or inanimate objects or this is what the snippets revealed.
It is on one of my favorite channels, The Discovery Channel, which has so many shows about nature, destruction and, in my opinion, positive eye-opening programs. It builds awareness about what goes on in the world around us and many of my entries are inspired by these programs.
So you can imagine my surprise when I first saw the advert on Sons of Guns; a show which, to me, looked so negative and defeated the purpose of the channel. The advert showed people firing these artilleries, hand grenades with launchers and all sorts of unrecognizable weapons into the bush. It oozed violence, emanated negative vibes and brought shivers down my spine.
Do we really need such programs at our day and time to be shown in such a positive way? The man and his daughter seemed extremely proud of making those weapons… weapons that are used to kill any possible living thing and create such damage and destruction to any place they hit or land on. We have so much destruction and death caused by such evil contraptions, we honestly do not need more invented and improved on. I know I am being unrealistic, and I know that sometimes I am a dreamer… but shouldn’t we destroy these man-made-evil toys and focus on inventing ‘contraptions’ that could build the world instead of destroy it?
