Obama and Biden are obsessed with taking away our guns. They are using the horrific Sandy Hook murders as an excuse to violate our 2nd Amendment Rights by banning some guns and restricting the number of bullets per cartridge. But the shooter at Sandy Hook left his AR-15 in the car and used only handguns.
Obama tried this once before the Fast & Furious scam, where he gave thousands of assult rifles to the Mexican Mafia so that when people got killed, he could blame the guns and take away our guns. In fact, Obama’s actions caused the deaths of hundreds of innocent Mexicans (whom Obama claims to love) including innocent teenagers at a birthday party and two of our own ICE agents.
Do you seriously think it is the mere presence of the gun that causes people to kill? Watch any violent movie or play a violent video game for hours on end. Can you seriously say these don’t have a far greater effect on fragile minds? Remember the shooter who killed 12 at the Dark Knight Rising premier? He was copying the mayhem inflicted by the Joker and even dressed like him.
Corporations spend billions on ads because the depictions in the ads influence people to go out and do things – buy their products, book vacations, whatever. Hollywood itself swamps the airwaves with ads prior to the Oscars in order to influence people and win Academy Awards.
In its August 2012 report, the International Society for Research on Aggression (IRSA) concluded that that evidence shows that the consumption of media violence acts as a trigger for aggressive thoughts or feelings already stored. They said exposure to violent images in different media, such as movies and video games, increased the risk of aggression.
So, let’s have gun control for movies and video games. If a handgun with a single bullet is enough for us to save our lives when threatened by actual robbers and murderers; why do movies need to show more and bigger guns? If they are going to kill people in these movies anyway, why do they need to do it in the most gory fashion with the biggest weapons?
Let’s ban the depiction of “Assault Weapons” in movies and video games. And let’s limit the number of guns used and the number of people who are killed in movies and video games to no more than 10.
If it saves even one life, is this not worth doing?
