    Television producers make what sells. Advertisers won't sponsor programs that no one watches. Stop watching it and it'll go away as advertising revenue dries up.

    same ole hypocrisy... Hollywood screaming about banning guns in the US along with Barack and his crew and yet nearly every single movie on the big screen or tv has nothing but guns and violence. It would seem to me that if Hollywood and liberals in general are so
    'anti-gun' then surely they would want to stop producing movies and tv drama with gun violence not to mention all the video gaming gun violence. It would also seem to me if millionaire actors are so anti-gun then surely they wouldn't want to carry guns themselves or have their own private security team with guns. Aren't the police and government the only ones that should have guns...according to our hypocritical friends?

    This is what seems ironic in the true sense. Hollywood, media, and the President don't like the NRA, carte blanche, but it is not the NRA that puts violence in front of every man, woman and child in America and beyond it's borders. It is the President's favorite people, the movie makers and money makers in the media such as CBS, NBC, ABC and even PBS, and public radio. They show the blood, the bullet speeding in slow motion through the air as it hits it's target.

    Alcohol and drugs are portrayed in a lot of those programs and since those who use illegal drugs don't obey those laws, the extraordinary laws for controlling guns won't even be held inviolate. Violent people don't go by laws that is why they are saturated by these programs and validate that they can do it. Programs even give plans to deviate people's brains on how they can fulfill their desire to get back at someone, something and somewhere due to their thoughts and actions.

    Programs about violence have changed from Jack Friday's Badge 714 when Jack and Perry would put the bad guys in jail.

    And commercials still promote excessive drinking. More kids are killed by alcohol and drugs than by guns. And thats just the ones who do them and not counting the ones killed by other people using. Lets not forget the millions of lives destroyed by both, when are we as a society going to say enough is enough.
