Emmett was left mutilated and horrendous looking for all of the world to see when his mother decided to have an open-coffin funeral. News of Emmett’s story spread through the nation like a forest fire, outraging and devastating people all over, saying how brutal the murder was, or how it wasn’t brutal enough. Emmett’s trial took place less than 2 weeks after he’d been killed, and somehow his trial was more unfair than his death. During trial, Mr. Breland harassed Till’s Uncle Mose, “And yet you could see clearly, clearly enough to accuse to white men of murder, to claim that the men on your porch were Mr. Bryant and Mr. Milam over there… No problem with white folks, yet there you sit accusing two of our upstanding white citizens of barging into your home in the middle of the night, pointing a gun and a flashlight in your face, and hauling off your nephew”(170/171). Even though Bryant and Milam both admitted to kidnapping Emmett, the possibility of the two men not even being there to take Emmett is beyond irrational, even when both men stated their names at Moses 's door.

Gun control has a dangerous track record; it has been seen to cause the death of millions of people, and the unrightful hostile takeover of basic freedoms of innocent citizens. Throughout history gun control has been introduced many times in foreign countries for the sole purpose of disarming, and threatening its own citizens. For example, in Nazi Germany, Jews were forbidden to purchase or own any firearms. Unable to defend themselves Adolf Hitler ordered the murder of over six million Jewish citizens. (Polsby 21)
