Silent one-minute moving images video 

Amino Ammo: Breeding a Culture of Violence addresses man’s inhumanity to man. This silent one-minute experimental, moving-image video clip is a metaphor for the breeding of gun violence prevalent in America today that starts in utero. Amniotic fluid protects the fetus in the womb, but weapons and distorted 2nd Amendment interpretations may be seen as the protection once born. Instead of a birth certificate, it seems as if these radicalized newborns are issued NRA Second Amendment certificates that justify the bearing of arms for the destruction of civil liberties, institutions, and fellow citizens who go against their cultural belief that a Constitutional democracy is a terroristic threat.
