By the Sniper smoking a cigarette and giving away his hiding, shows the sniper has bravery because of the risk he is taking.Another example, it says “Taking off his cap, he placed it over the muzzle of his rifle. Then he pushed the rifle slowly upward over the parapet, until the cap was visible from the opposite side of the street. Almost immediately there was a report, and a bullet pierced the center of the cap” (O'Flaherty 3). When the Sniper took his hat off to figured out a plan he nearly almost got shot. If the sniper wasn’t quick enough he could of died.
Zak Klug Mrs. Hepworth English 9 18 November 2015 In the short story “The Sniper” by Liam O’Flaherty, the author’s message about strategy is that if you have a better strategy than your opponent, you are more likely to be more successful than your opponent. In the story, the main character is a sniper that has to kill people from the opposing side. He gets into a showdown with an opposing sniper and ends up getting shot in the arm. Due to this he cannot use his rifle, he must now be very strategic in order to kill the other sniper and survive. The main character would not have survived if he did not have better strategy than his opponents because, “She was pointing to the roof where the sniper lay (2).” The women made it very clear and obvious
If you have ever been shot at, which I have, then you have an appreciation for what a gun can do.” Another example of a people not handling guns properly would be when Rick Brown, Southern Utah University’s police chief, was notified by a teacher that a loaded clip had fallen out of a student’s backpack. Students, staff, professors, etc. may be in danger whenever someone carries a gun near them. A person with a mental illness can be dangerous to others. Everybody seems normal and sane until he pulls out a gun to threaten or shoot others.
At that moment, officer Yanez draws his pistol and discharges seven shots from point-blank range into Castile, killing him instantly (Forde). There is a lot that is morally wrong here. Yanez clearly misread the situation. He chose to draw his firearm and shoot immediately at Castile from less than a foot away. A much safer alternative would have been for Yanez to reach out and restrain Castile since they were already in close quarters.
The government has built these watchdogs that watch everyone’s every move to see if they are breaking the society’s laws. Montag is really disturbed because he is a different person and he is scared that the dog is suspicious of him. The dog is very good at hunting down and killing, which is a huge example of a dystopian society that has no privacy. Another example in Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 would be when the captain says "Come
There is nothing wrong or bad about what he is shooting or shooting them with it is his actions that make this a great example of why gun control is soooo important in this world. He is shooting and his gun does not fire or what gun people call a hang fire. When this happens you are supposed to hold the gun pointed down range for a couple minutes and wait to make sure the firearm is safe to dechambre. Well this guy is not very good with gun safety he right away takes the gun puts it on it stock and looks right down the barrel to see if it jammed. The guy looks for a couple seconds and it goes off and hits his hat and skins his head.
Although some police officers use deadly force way to frequently, police officers should still be able to carry guns. Because of dangerous people in the united states pose a threat and they may have a weapon like a gun or a knife. So with the guns the police officers have they may scare the suspect into surrendering or shoot them if they fight, either killing or injuring justice will be serve. Most people want to get rid of police holding guns because they are scared of police officers turning bad or using brutal force. “Most of the 422 police shootings examined by an internal police review board from 1993 to early 1998 were ruled to be justified, and only two cases resulted in criminal charges against police officers.” (Gerdes).
They show this determination through their refusal to succumb to intense pain and risk it all to defeat their opposition. Starting off is the IRA Sniper from “The Sniper” who quite clearly shows how determined he is. One example is when after being shot in the arm, ”He broke the neck of the iodine bottle and let the bitter fluid drip into the wound. A paroxysm of pain swept through him…he made an effort of will to overcome the pain.” (O’Flaherty 3). he used a extremely painful
The other sniper, seeing the cap and rifle fall, thought he had killed his man” (O’Flaherty 438-439). This quote shows that the sniper is intelligent because during this part he comes up with a way to fake his death. During the story, the sniper is very risky. He shows that he is risky when we lights a cigarette. “He paused for a moment, considering whether he should risk a smoke.
If Berg were to shoot Heisenberg, then he would get shot instantly by one of the guards posted around the room(“Moe” Dead Ballplayers Society). Berg needed two things to carry out this mission. He needs a pistol to shoot Heisenberg and a potassium cyanide capsule. That pill would cause his instant death(Foulkesz). If Berg shot Heisenberg, he would have faced a decision.
