This piece is a visual and aural metaphor for the breeding of gun violence that could be nurtured within a radical extremist mother’s womb---the creation and birthing of a violent American culture that I believe may start in utero. Amniotic fluid protects the fetus in the womb, but weapons and distorted 2nd Amendment interpretations may be seen as protection once born. Instead of a birth certificate, it seems as if these radicalized newborns are issued NRA Second Amendment certificates that justifies the bearing of arms for the destruction of civil liberties, institutions, and fellow citizens who go against their cultural belief that our Constitutional democracy is a terroristic threat.
