Squawk of the Day - Jan. 26 2013

"It is pathetic that the Hollywood elite are speaking out for stricter gun controls. Hollywood promotes such violence with movies and shows glorifying violence. They make their millions from violent movies."

For more squawks, pick up a copy of today's Albany Herald.

So if we had no violent visual stimuli there would be no gun violence? Can we also ban the use of sexually provocative images to sell everything but sex? Can we ban Christian Mingles to avoid discrimination against non-Christians?

Just asking.

I can't be sure, but I don't think the point of the squawk was that violent movies should be banned. I think the point was that it's more than a bit hypocritical of these actors to put on their little sad faces and use their little sad voices to make a video calling for sweeping gun control, while making millions glamorizing gun violence in the movies.

A bit ironic that Sylvester Stalone is for stricter gun control laws for the reasons you stated, Mr Heatmiser. I agree with what you said. Hollywood has had a terrible impact on the values of this country.

We need to quit trying to run each others lives.

There are many influences on these crazies that come from the Entertainment Industry including films and violent video games. They provide a vision and a virtual playground for what the crazies eventually bring to reality. These stimuli definitely share the culpability.

But since they pour so much money into the Democrat political machine.....they are not even mentioned.

Not as bad as all the libtard congressman trying to disregard the constitution.

Please tell us how the Constitution is being disregarded. Try not to use the exact words that Fox News used.
