Poster, Hand Gun Control, Japan, 1998

Abstract

This poster, encouraging citizens to report suspicions of hand guns being suggled into Japan or trafficked in, etc., was photographed at the police substation in front of the Nara JR rail station, 1998. Like most of the industrialized world, Japan has been undergoing social change at an astonishing and accelerating rate in the latter part of the 20th c. and the beginning of the 21st c. How one might interpret the meaning of this poster is probably open to very considerable disagreement and argument, but the mere fact of its existence will be disquieting to many persons.
