The reason Sam was executed, stealing his own cattle, was unjustified and unfair. Tim explains, “They were so close the gun muzzles were almost touching Sam’s clothes…. He wasn’t dead yet. He lay there shaking and thrashing about, his knees jerking up and down. They had shot him from so close that his clothes were on fire.
Huck learns of the destruction that violence can cause. At the beginning of the book, Huck was a member of Tom Sawyer 's band of robbers and he was eager to participate in the kidnapping and ransoming and killing the group planned to commit .

The Grangerfords have a long-lasting feud with another family, the Shepherdsons, that according to Buck Grangerford causes a ¨right smart chance of funerals¨, showing Huck how many people have become casualties of meaningless fighting between two families(163). This blind hatred and bloodlust leads to Huck 's stay with the Grangerfords ending on a violent note as well.

He killed the solders and he took most of the men, women, and children with him. Also, I think if he returned to Arizona he can revenge and revenge his people like what he told Mr. Gatewood that he did not learn to do anything except to revenge and always will get revenge. That’s was after a year when his wife and his two girls killed by the Mexican army. He killed more than 50 soldiers in his way to the Mexican border. When Mr. Gatewood came to him at

It’s not just a line from the drill instructor; I believe it has a lot of meaning. It’s almost like Joker’s instructions to hide behind his public persona of a warrior, a facade that helps him get through the entirety of the film until after killing the female sniper in vengeance of Cowboys death, his ultimate war face has to be shown. All in vengeance of Cowboy being killed. The death of his best friend finally made him transform into a killer, he wanted to truly kill. But once he gets to the sniper he sees that not only is the sniper critically injured, but to the point they will die, but it’s a female sniper.
At Stringy Bark Creek Ned purposely set out with the intention to kill three troopers, who were pursuing them for the theft of horse and cattle. Ned shot the men, as they lay on the ground defenceless, he finished them off with many more shots. Many people believe that Ned Kelly was a hero just because he occasionally stood up to the so called “corrupt” police, however, he was unquestionably the most corrupt out of them all, as there is no excuse for killing
Even worse, they beheaded children, for their own amusement. What did Columbus do? Nothing. As a leader, he never stopped his men from committing these crimes, but instead watched as the hundreds of thousands of natives committed suicide, yet, people still glorify his name. A person who can watch the murder of millions without stopping it should not have a holiday that praises his good moments and hides
A representation of this is shown when Odysseus finally makes it home and irrationally kills every one of his wife’s suitors. Not only does he kill them but he also kills the innocent girls that the men forced themselves onto. He killed all of them in cold blood, when none of them deserved that. This once again justifies that odysseus is not a hero.
Anyone who didn’t follow order was usually killed, for example on the march to Mexico when Cortes finds out that some of the caciques and papas were secretly betraying him he killed several of them. “Then Cortés told them that the King’s law decreed such treachery should not go unpunished, and they must die for their crime….they received a blow they will remember forever, for we killed many of them, and the promises of their false idols were of no avail.” (Diaz, 199) Cortés’ campaign was fueled by violence and false promises of brotherhood, there was never going to be a bond between Cortés and a bunch of uncivilized people. Cortés wanted power and wealth and he succeeded in doing
‘How dare they kill his men!’ he thought to himself. Captain Kelso, Alpha Company’s CO, went from conservative and reserved about committing his Company to entering the box canyon. Now angry and seeking revenge for the men he had lost, he was full steam ahead ordering the Company into the canyon with no real game plan on how to engage the enemy within.

The captain who captures Grady and Rawlins and the group of thieves Parham come across towards the end of the novel represent the lack of a moral system in a lawless society in Mexico. The captain killed Belvins because of a bribe and one of the thieves “killed a good horse for no reason”(257). They are not only corrupted based on monetary reasons but are morally corrupted as well. Grady learns from Perez that this is the only way to survive in the country after all he said to Grady, “Evil is a true thing in Mexico. It goes about on its own legs.
The thought of a society without a militia is sickening with terrorists being able to attack any helpless citizen. Sure, the alternative weapons are useful, yet they don 't have any range upon the enemy and some people can not acquire the physical force or tactical skill needed to fortify. Gun control makes it so only the fittest of the fittest survive, which means even more deaths when terrorists attack. To add, gun laws do not prove any use. Even though gun laws prevent deaths, they infringe so many rights in the immutable Bill of Rights, which is one of the foundations of the great United States.
