Guns Are Cool

Guns Are Cool explores the issue that guns are seen as cool, fashionable and desirable by many young people today and until we change that perception, we’re not going to solve the problem of rising gun crime. Features undercover footage and interviews with young British gang members.

    It’s not seeing guns as cool that causes crime. It’s the attitude that using those guns to hurt other people is cool or acceptable. A gun is simply a tool. The American gun culture is made up of “rednecks” who think guns are cool and go shoot them off at the range; and they are not the ones who are committing gun crimes. The problem of gun crime is based in the malignent and destructive “hood” culture that permeates inner city communities and ghettos. The guns themselves are not to blame, nor are people who like guns. There is a large gap between thinking guns are cool, and thinking shooting someone with a gun is cool. It’s pathetic and sad that so many can’t grasp the difference.

      Thats the rudest fucking thing I have ever heard. I’m willing to bet you’ve never been to Britain. Your comments are absolutely worthless. Keep your mouth shut your not helping.

      Did you miss the bit where some gangs are white and the ‘white’ members talking about guns or have you suddenly become colour blind.  In any case, black people are in the UK and America and they ain’t going nowhere.  Live wid it.  Some of the biggest gangs have made guns ‘cool’ long before young people took them up.  We call that gang the government and they’ve been influenced by rock,pop,and classical music.  If you have nothing better to say, zip your trap.

    This documentary has completely missed a key underlying factor. These are gangs with guns. GANGS. CRIMINALS. When I hold one I dont think about the psychotic shit these people think.  having to use a fiream in self defense is not sexy. These fuckers think having a gun makes you big fuck man on the block. Its not a fucking fashion show. Its a serious fucking sport and frankly all these knuckle head mother fuckers should be locked up. This documentary is anti Hip-Hop, anti firearm. I’m done with it.

    i am a 27 year old american, i lived in london for 5 years till last year…… gangs in london are just an imitation of the real things here in the states… everyone likes guns, its nothing new or hard to wrap your mind around….. guns ARE cool, i have personally fired guns and i love them :) the REAL problem with gun violence lies with poverty and lack of self worth…. you see, people only act out when there trying to make others see them as something more than what they feel they really are……

    Don’t feel the need to watch any further… If you want to do a doc. on firearms and crime don’t waste your time in the UK. The States gun statistics are far more worse than the UK.
