re: Screwdriver"...I welcome research into who is watching the
gun violence movies and which party they prefer."I'm a
Libertarian and thought Last Stand was decent.
Ok lets find out out who watches these movies! I had never heard of the
tarentino guy and I doubt I have ever watched his movies. Who would
watch a movie about big GUNS? Mmmmm not the PETA girl, probable not the current
or future anti gun activist. Could it be that current and future gun
lovers of america that would vote republican are the people that view these
movies just like it was with Dirty Harry and John Wayne?So sure, I
welcome research into who is watching the gun violence movies and which party
Let us deal with ACTUAL Americans who have their children murdered in elementary
schools...before we mourn the imaginary due to watching a movie.
"It is no coincidence that the perpetrator of every school massacre in the
last 25 years had spent an enormous amount of time watching violent shows and/or
playing video games." No kidding it's no coincidence because the vast
majority of kids in America have spent an enormous amount of time watching
violent show and/or playing video games. Coincidence isn't causality. The whole violent media rant is a somoke screen. Try reading the Illad
and the Odyssey and then tell me how there's a recent surge in violent and
at John C S;In honor of your moralizing, I am going to go see Last
Stand again then get a Red Bull & take a nap.
This newfound interest in movie violence is quite a sideshow. Let's deal
with the guns, then move on to the entertainment industry. Would that be OK?
That at least half of the actors are only in it for the money and are pretending
to love guns?
I'm just glad that today's "violent media" article
doesn't feature a picture of Tarantino or one of his movies.I
might add that Arnold Schwarzenegger's new movie is directed by a South
Korean director. Many other countries make violent media too, but still have
lower rates of violent crime.I think I'm gonna keep blaming the
Death Penalty, since that seems to be what the United States has in common with
other "violent societies".
It is no coincidence that the perpetrator of every school massacre in the last
25 years had spent an enormous amount of time watching violent shows and/or
playing video games. Study after study has proven that those who participate in
violent entertainment become desensitized, and eventually imitate what they
see.The time for fence-sitting is past. Either you support violent
entertainment, or you support the preservation of the lives of millions of
innocent schoolchildren. You cannot have it both ways.
Arnold Schwarzenegger voted against gay marriage while he was Governor of
California.Then, told his wife Maria Shriver that he had a 10 year
old son with another woman.My dollars will support those politics
that I support.As such, I think I will watch the Lorax again.
