Visual rhetoric is the use of visual imagery in the delivery of an argument.
In this example, the cartoonist’s drawing of the first bullet is presented with some visuals that are highly provocative, such as the outline of a man’s face and the word “bitch” (the word being an expletive).
But it is the second bullet that is the most controversial: a man holding a gun is being shot.
This image is so controversial, and so violent, that it will be used in court and the media.
The first cartoon is a drawing of a gun being held by a man in a blue coat with a black shirt and blue pants.
The gun is aimed at the man’s head.
The word “BITCH” is written on the weapon.
The drawing is extremely graphic and has an explicit message.
The first bullet in this example is used to illustrate the point that a cartoon is not a valid form of evidence.
The second bullet is used in an example where a man holds a gun in a cartoon.
The man is being charged with an offence for having a gun on a public street.

It depicts the angry woman holding a firearm.
She is being arrested for having possession of a firearm while she is on the run.

She holds the firearm to her head as she walks towards the police station.
The police officer has seen the cartoon drawing and he is not satisfied with the interpretation.
“I don’t understand the argument you are making here, you seem to be arguing that the police are wrong to use deadly force,” the officer states.
She responds: “They’re just going to have to do their job, I don’t think they can just shoot me.”
The police officer then proceeds to say to the woman: “Your conduct, that’s what makes you a dangerous person.”
This example of a cartoon showing a woman with a gun and a woman holding it in the hand is presented as a threat and used to argue against her using the weapon as a weapon.
A woman in a gun-shy position poses with a firearm on her head.

This is a graphic depiction of a woman threatening a man with a knife.
One of the cartoons in this series shows a man and a girl standing next to each other in front of a window with the man saying: “Let’s talk.”

The girl says: “Put your hands up.”
The man says: “”No, no, you can’t do that.”
The woman then approaches the man, grabs the knife and points it at him.
He screams and the cartoon is changed to show him holding his own knife in his hand, saying: “”You know what?
I don.t have a knife.”
The man says “I know”.
The boy and the girl then turn and walk away from the window.
Another cartoon in this same series shows the two boys walking on a sunny day with a boy holding a toy gun, saying to the boy “Can I borrow your gun?
We’ll play around.”
The boy holds the toy gun to his chest and the gun appears to be pointed at the boy.
In this case the boy is wearing a jacket, which he is holding up.
When the boy pulls the gun from his jacket he screams: “Get your hands off my gun, you idiot!” and the animation changes to show the boy with the gun.
There is no gun, and the boy says “Get away from me, you fucking idiot.”
There are no other threats made by the boy in this cartoon.
Other cartoon depictions in this article include a woman who is holding a baby with her hands above her head and her children playing with a toy pistol.
