    Hollywood gun control hypocrites

    Hollywood hacks calling for gun control, but profiting from movies with lots of guns and shooting.

    Hollywood Hypocrites Demand Gun Control For Citizens As Their Movies Promote Gun Violence - YouTube

    I wonder how many of these Hollywood types have guns at home or are guarded by people with guns when out in public?

    They will probably claim their 1st amendment rights to make movies with massive gun induced body counts, but would deny gun owners their 2nd amendment rights.

    If you don't like what they have to say about your rights, don't support their products.

    Jack Reacher had 45 million viewers in its first two weeks; the OP can't compete with that. Hollywood is one of the sources of our woes, let's not trivialise the importance of recognising its contribution to violence and sociopathy.

    But ... but... but .... they call it "acting" ...... LOL. To some disturbed people who can't sort out reality from fantasy... it's real.

    2A, self defense, the Constitution, protecting the most vulnerable, living in the greatest country, and respecting our heritage and those who defend it are our traditional priorities. And they are working well. I would say, "get the word out". But the greatest publicity machine is grinding its gears.
    Actually, it ticks me off that we point fingers at hypocrites and "whores" (OP linked). They play actors against writers. Americans love America and our heritage. If a fraction of us stood for our beliefs as many as paid actors stand to deliver the Hollywood line, then the whole illogical call for gun bans would die.

    There has been violent entertainment since the dawn of human interaction with one another. Movies are more violent now than they probably ever were, but violence levels are down. Don't go employing their idiotic logic and replacing "guns" with "Jack Reacher". It's another scapegoat tactic that serves to do nothing more than advance the interests of control freaks in government who would love nothing more than to add yet another avenue of restrictions against what you can or cannot do.

    I entertain myself. Between guns, golf, antique cars, fishing, and taking my kids to their activities who has time for TV and movie Hacks. As a nation, we spend way too much time staring at TV and movie screens. Unplug and get off the grid.

    These paid talents present a loss most personal from the latest American tragedy. Yet such loss can't be true for all of them. Still they bleed their hearts purple for their masters.
    So many great ideas for society going forward. So little appreciation for the peace and freedom that got them where they are. Too many sheep want to suffer forced pains and respond to real threats from artificial emotion.
    Such blind leading the blind is not self-sustaining and must give way to reality at some point.

    Understandably you've missed my other posts on other threads; graphic violence was prohibited in films until the collapse of the movie code with the success of Bonnie and Clyde, and graphically violent video games did not exist until well after that. Given that ALL mass shootings have occurred since this time cannot be a coincidence; the concept is sociopathy, look it up (especially "narcissism") with a good overview on Wikipedia.

    Fully automatic weapons have been to hand since the Civil War, semi-auto pistols since the turn of that century, and assault rifles since WW2; and yet there were no mass shootings outside of wartime in the US until the 70s onwards. It shouldn't take a genius to make the connection.

    Like the three building blocks required to make fire (oxygen fuel spark) it would seem that the very suggestible among us are wrongfully connecting the dots to kill strangers -- just like on TV, or in film.

    I personally don't care what any hollywood elite, professional athlete, or any other "celebrity" has to say about the topic. They aren't qualified, IMHO, to offer advice and counsel on the subject. My hero's wear dog tags, and body armor. God bless our war fighters and sheepdogs.

    Adopting the blame tactics of the anti-gun crowd is senseless. All the time spent arguing whether guns or movies or video games are to blame puts more distance from the fact that human beings are responsible for these acts. I grew up in a household with firearms, watched violent movies, played a few violent games (admittedly with some enjoyment), and I'm a veteren. There are many wizards of smart out there who would say these factors earn me a slot on Big Sis's watch list, but they're just wrong. I was fortunate to have parents who loved me, shot with me, watched movies with me, and taught me right from wrong.
    My best friend, upon hearing the news of the Newtown massacre hit the nail on the head when he said: "It's time we start keeping score at little league games again."

    Violent movies/tv, video games, breakup of families, drugs, removing God from our schools and countless other things have contributed to this mess. But there are a lot of us that gave lived thorough all that and not succumbed to the mass violence or crime.

    It's more about the "me" in society and the lack of personal responsibility. We have a society where most people think more of themselves than they do of anyone or anything else. And to top that off most of society refuses to take responsibility for their actions. When they won't take responsibility and we just stand around being politically correct and not force criminals to live up to their actions then we get the mess we are in.

    End of rant. Moving on now....

    One of many reasons I do not support Hollywood. Have not set foot in a theater in over 10 years; no subs to HBO, Showtime, etc. If it is not on regular TV, I don't see it unless a friend loans me the DVD. These folks are in no small part, financially and otherwise, why the country is in the spot it is in now.
