Hollywood Produces “Balanced” Gun Control Documentary

125

A new documentary hit (a few) theaters on November 15th, and it promises to address gun violence as a public health issue that must be eradicated just like any other disease we might battle. While No Control presents itself as a “balanced” look at the debate over American gun control, its trailer alone is enough to tell any thinking viewer where its allegiances lie. It’s just one more attempt by the left to influence the minds of a susceptible populace.

Prominent amongst the clips shown in the trailer is a man telling us that “every Constitutional right has its limits.” As if there is a single American who would disagree. This isn’t about accepting that our rights carry limits. Very few citizens are up in arms about bans on personal ownership of, say, nuclear weapons. We get it. We know that “arms” does not necessarily include weapons of mass destruction. That’s not what we’re fighting against.

What we are fighting against – and perhaps the meat of the documentary will play more fairly with this idea – is government control over guns. Yes, there is a gun violence problem, but that’s just another way of saying there is a violence problem. And the answer is not in increased legislation. That’s not the answer from a standpoint of freedom, and it’s not the answer from the standpoint of results. In fact, many studies have concluded that gun violence trends downwards in cities with the most permissive laws regulating their ownership.

A predictably-biased review from the Huffington Post was entranced by gun-control advocate Shaina Harrison’s appearance in the movie, claiming she “dismantles the argument that gun control laws only serve to inconvenience law-abiding gun owners.” She does this “dismantling” by pointing out that once-legal guns find their way into criminal hands from states where gun control laws are lax.

But this is just the same old tired argument. It can be used to promote increased regulation of cars, prescription drugs, knives, baseball bats, and spray paint. The truth is that if there is a product that can be abused, people are going to abuse it. If there is a product that has the potential to kill, people will use it to kill. Short of a complete ban, there is no reasonable way to make sure that never happens.

The concept the left never seems willing to accept is that freedom carries risk. If you accept that people should be given as much liberty as possible without compromising the structure of society, then you have to accept that some will fail. Some will fall behind. Some will turn to gangs. Some will kill. The alternative is to live in a society where cars are made of Nerf, guns are no longer manufactured, and every aspect of your life is regulated down to the minute. That life might be a lot less risky, but is that the world we want to live in?

    Hollyweird. Makes me wonder how many murders and suicides can be attributed to the influence of movies and television productions. Perhaps we should ban Cinema and television.

    1. michaelcain says

      Or at least monitor what is available to our children. The first murder that was recorded was when Cain killed his brother AAble over his coat. and there was no movies or tv then . so the act is not just as seen but as contrived in ones own mind . more people need close supervision when in public . But who and where and when ???now we will get government control in this fashion. government needs to be cut back all is not well in the big house. it is like unrto a cancer and it gets worse as time goes on.

      1. Landshark says

        Parental control is acceptable. For government to censor is another issue. For government to control the entertainment and information we have access to is quite Orwellian. And absolutely Communist. They now teach Islam and homosexuality to elementary school students.The object of Hollywierd and the Communist elements in government is to DISARM the American people and then squash the other RIGHTS enumerated in the Bill of Rights. Already, with the advent of “politically correct” speech, the First Amendment is under attack. More recently Christianity is being assaulted, again, an assault on the the free practice of religion, guaranteed by the First Amendment. Historically, power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. The Forth Amendment has been regularly violated with the phrase,”if you have nothing to hide, you should not require a warrant for me to search your 1) car, 2) home, 3) person. The double jeopardy portion of the Fifth Amendment is regularly violated by the federal government, trying persons on the exact or similar charges they have been found not guilty of, or already convicted of, by state courts. And states and municipalities have so violated the Second Amendment that it NO LONGER EXISTS in places such as Chicago Maryland and Washington DC and California and Connecticut and New York. Rumor has it that DES has built centers which could be compared to the Gulag of Soviet Russia. It is not a cancer. It is a plague, for which there may be only one cure. Semper Fi!

      2. Vernon Cunningham says

        LOL, Michaelcain, I think you are mixing your biblical stories. Josephs brothers sold him into slavery over his fathers greater attention to Joseph. Cain slew able because god favored able. Simple cases both over jealousy. And that is often the reason one spouse kills another with whatever is at hand. Sometimes it is a gun. A tool is just a tool. it is the hearts of man that kills.

  2. HankBar says

    The favorite ploy of gun control activist and the liberal left radicals. Compromise !!!

    Compromise is why we are where we are today. It is the
    liberals favorite word. Everytime you compromise another slice of freedom goes
    by the wayside, the Government gets bigger and more intrusive.

    1. Kent2012 says

      in addition to compromise we have “caving in” and we can not forget “taking the high road”…anymore I am thinking that those who are “frightened” of being labeled “this or that” are as much a part of the problem as the commie clowns that have seemed to spring up everywhere…we know that the seeds were sown in the 1920s and the Senator Joseph McCarthy was right on the mark, but by then there were so many moles in government and the scum were infecting the school system so much that they reared their ugly snouts in the mid-sixties and showed their true being…most ignored what was thrust into their faces….now the cancer is fully vested..

      1. tinkerunique says

        The gun made me kill the neighbor, is like the spoon made me fat, or the car made me get drunk and run over the old lady crossing the street.

        1. yaki534 says

          And cars are registered. Does that stop anything? NO! The operator does it just as the person that has the firearm does. inanimate objects can do nothing until someone operates it.

      2. Conservative says

        You are a very wise man and I thank you!

    2. Michael Dennewitz says

      Well, think about it! Hollywood is responsible for the production of all the VIOLENCE I the movies that have been produced, most of which has been crammed down people’s throats since childhood, so who better to come up with even MORE BULLSHIT to influence the kids of today. If they had to cut out all that violent BULLSHIT, two things would happen. First, the sorry bastards would go broke, second, we might not end up with any more sickly violent people out there. We certainly can’t have that, now can we?

      1. Conservative says

        Several years ago the liberals were on war against Cowboy movies, they were against cartoons like the Road Runner, Mighty Mouse, etc. but nothing is done about the very lucrative ultra violent video games and the parents that rail against guns actually are buying these video games for their teens and young children.

        1. yaki534 says

          Look at their poor excuse for cartoons now. Makes Roadrunner and the others look like civilized people.

        2. michaelcain says

          This could be curtailed if the parents had some moxey and only got the good stuf for the kids instead of what they want . all this bad stuff came into being when the government stepped in and gave the children rights above their parents . lets go back to do not spare the rod and spoil the kid . But home structure is the first and fore most basic training that the kids get. If you tough that I will break ,your hands.

          1. Conservative says

            You are exactly correct but I am sure you know that the liberals and liberal government are working against parents and constructive family life. It began with Lyndon Johnson & the liberal war against poverty. Families broke up because they would not get welfare if there was a father in the home, thus ‘fathers became insignificant and it freed them from responsibility for their families. Children as young as 13 years old began having babies to get government support and many of these mothers encouraged this practice. Mothers are bringing multiple men into and out of their childrens lives. Too many parents just do not have time to take an interest in their children. Children turn to gangs for a sense of belonging because there is no family life or loyalty.

            The government made laws that took children out of their neighborhood schools and they were bused to black neighborhoods and black teachers. Many of these teachers spoke ‘ebonics’ and the white children could not even understand them and the teachers really didn’t know the subject they were supposed to be teaching.

            Liberalism advanced with ‘political correctness, banning any mention of God in our schools or government, Christian holidays became secular vacations, many churches went along with the ‘sexual revolution’ and morality in the U.S. has become non-existent.

            Schools: Common Core does not educate. It is indoctrination into Communism.
            The liberals are now demeaning ‘stay at home’ moms and they want to outlaw homeschooling.
            Teachers are now having sex with students, students are having sex in the restrooms, cloak rooms and all over school grounds.
            Sex education has descending into that which could be taken from porn magazines and video.
            Children are given contraceptives and condoms by teachers without parents consent.
            Teachers are taking children to abortion clinics without parents consent.
            Our College professors are 99% liberal. Bill Ayers, murdering terrorist is teaching at the Univ. of Chicago and they about to hire another terrorist that killed a mother of four and was hiding out in Mexico for 22 years, after being caught he spent six years in prison and is now being hired by this same Univ. of Chicago.

            I wonder how many concessions will have to be made by Americans to accommodate the illegals who will take over the Country. What will the new “political correctness’ involve.

            Sorry to go on like this but I’m really frustrated today. The Emperors latest illegal moves and the support for rioting over a thug, Michael Brown, the derogatory prejudice against Ofc. Wilson who was simply doing his job when he was attacked.

        3. Kenny Coffman says

          I even remember the “attack” on The Three Stooges — too violent, ya know? We can’t have our kids poking other kid’s eyes out like Moe does, now can we? Let’s have a ban on those two fingers that do the poking. That ought to solve the violence problem. Hey, one of those fingers is your “trigger” finger. We could kill two birds with one stone with this ban!

        4. tom says

          Liberals are just another name for the communist party.

      2. Chris Knipp says

        Yes, “Hollywood” is an influence. Yet, “Hollywood” can be a positive influence as well. There are some good moral people working hard in the TV & Film industry to make it a better voice in society (Check out the Hollywood Prayer Network). I’ve been guilty of demonizing Hollywood too in the past. Yet, I’ve been involved a little in the TV & Film Industry the last couple years. Good moral people need to not generalize about Hollywood so much as a whole and get involved instead. Yes, people in the TV & Film industry do put out some junk because unfortunately there is a market for it. The deeper issue at the root of the violence is the break down of the family. Sure, Hollywood is an easy target for producing violent content. However, parents do not have to buy it for their children and parents can teach their children better.

        1. Durango 35 says

          Yes there are good people in Holly wood. The problem is that the twisted mindset of Hollywood screams at us from all sides but the good people are kept voiceless, Let them speak out, let the quiet majority raise their voice and close their pocket book to the bull the are selling as normal.

          1. michaelcain says

            yes the courts are giving in to all the finatics of any thing so as to be politically correct. the entire system is amok with POLITICALLY correct. that is demeaning us. to be politically correct and what is that worth ??the politians do not really know.

        2. yaki534 says

          You have a point, but they aren’t helping . Killing and sexual promiscuity is most of what comes out of that disgusting place Yes, parents are responsible but there are a lot of one aren’t amilies out there.

        3. michaelcain says

          But you can not punish your child for fear of beings sent to jail. and some children need to feel the consiquenses of doing wrong. I have raised 13 kids and the majority of the time it was good but once in a while they need a strong hand. and now I am proud to have many grand and great grand children . and I show love to all of them .

        4. catman says

          Hollywood is NOT the place of well adjusted “families”. Look at the shack up rates and the children born into these so called families. Let’s not forget the LGBT community that feels it is perfectly OK to have sex with the same sex as you are, to marry the same sex, etc. We also need to look at the athletic genre with all it’s bad boys (and some girls) with their drug habits, alcoholism and other criminal activities.
          These people (call them celebrities if you will, I won’t) are supposed to be icons that children can look up to for guidance.
          Most of these hollywierds are just very wealthy, immature, spoiled brats. Yes there are a few, very few, who do real good throughout the world and I applaude them.

      3. Don Dale says

        The part I can’t stand is that all the HollyWood movies use a bunch of those ‘Rambo Bullets’, 1000 bullets get shot at one guy but none of them ever scratch him! I’d rather the movies be more realistic if I’m shooting at you while standing out in the open, you’re gonna pick me off and it won’t take 1000 rounds!

        1. michaelcain says

          how about I sneak up behind you and use a baseball bat ? now you have to ban the ball bat. how about I use a rock and it kills you ? then we must ban all rocks , and bricks ?How about I use my hands to break your head ,then what you cut off every ones hands ???There has to be a time when nsime one can find an amicable and sane solution. and that obvesly it should start with training the human element, as the other things CAN NOT THINK or act with out help from the human. and that is an excerpt from Freuid and friends.

          1. elmcqueen3 says

            Even if guns were banned….Liberals would find something else to complain about…They never stop getting in peoples faces!

          2. Don Dale says

            When I was 14yo, I was mowing a yard, I was in a hurry so I didn’t ‘Walk the Yard’ first (my mistake) while mowing I hit a rock, it flew from under my mower hit a tree ricocheted and hit me in the ribs! PAIN! All I could do was ‘kill’ the mower and lay down in the grass! Maybe we should ban lawnmowers?????????
            I’ve seen ppl who have tried unjamming their snow blower without shutting it off (not me)..OUCH! Maybe we should ban those as well????????

      4. michaelcain says

        What if ,and that is what if. they were to start displaying the attitude that if you had a problem with some one that you over fed them instead of shooting them. then we could have a well fed comunity

      5. elmcqueen3 says

        Many Hollywood celebrities are hyprocrites….They trash gun ownership…Yet every movie they make they have a gun in their hand and they kill people throughout the entire movie…Then they have the nerve to tell people that guns are bad and that the government should take them away from the citizenery for his would make the world a safer place to live…In the meantime they keep making more movies about killing people with guns…What a bunch of hyprocrites…What a bunch of A**holes!

      6. Terry Hamblin says

        Unfortunately Michael, in this imperfect world Hollywood produces what people want to see, that way they get audiences, higher ratings etc. and Sponsors, the latter is where the money comes from! So while you and I cringe when we see ads for Ax Men, Duck Dynasty, Wrestling with Death, Survivor, and a myriad of others, people watch those things and in large numbers! Makes you wonder why Congress is inept, nobody gives a damn!

    3. John R. Turner says

      To a liberal “compromise” means you give me what I want and you will get nothing in return.

      1. emag says

        Exactly. And they have armed to the teeth guards. Who put hollywood in charge anyway. Boycott these idiots.

        1. Michael Skaggs says

          Compromise–surrender on the instalment plan.

        2. mr2bears@hotmail.com says

          Have for the last 10 yrs. or so, I’m going to add HBO starting next month! Can’t say if it will do any good other than save me money too buy another GUN ! My2cents

    4. WhiteFalcon says

      Their idea of compromise is “you cave in and do it my way.” There is a time for compromise and a time to not compromise. When your freedoms are at stake, that is not the time to comrpomise.

    5. James Maxwell says

      Compromise to a socialist, liberal, communist, democrat or other wacko group means you
      give us what we want and shut up. You get nothing but limp wristed service in response.
      Or to make it more simple, bend over and it won’t hurt much!

      1. Lynn Todd says

        Or simply bend over and request the size of gravel they add if any!

    6. wdcraftr says

      Isn’t that what they keep telling Israel Too? Compromise? Compromise till you have Nothing left.. LOL!
      Compromise is OK if the Govt. compromises too. If they remove All their military weapons from our Police, the DHS Gestapo, and so forth, then we will be on a safe and equal basis.. Giving all the weapons to Govt. and it’s gestapo is not even, and is tyranny, oppression, and Dictatorship.. I’ll compromise with Govt. giving me an MRAP, and automatic weapons too.. Oh yeah, a million rounds of ammo also.. That’s my compromise..

      1. michaelcain says

        A few well placed I E D s can prevent all those munitions from distribution and use. The government can not control all the eliments to make those. thus all that money and handling expense is for naught and it will take people who are willing to kill ,their own families.

        1. wdcraftr says

          Who says Obama will not fly in foreign troops, soldiers, muslim’s, America haters, to kill us, corral us into Fema camps, steal our weapons, etc.? All under the guise of United Nations, or whatever.. There are enough laws on the books now to arrest anyone who is a Christian, a Veteran, or ever made a remark that can be construed as racist, or hateful.. Only a Liberal, or Muslim is exempt,,, So far..

    7. Michael Dennewitz says

      And isn’t it amazing what shit that floats to the top when more and more people begin to stand up for their “rights?” Any time Follywood or fame is involved, there always seems to be something “deep N dark” hidden in their closets! Look at Mr Famous, Bill Cosby – all his dirty little secrets coming to light. Seems he had a fettish (sp) for raping women and covering it up because he was “famous and above reproach.” HA!
      It all comes out in the wash, eh??

    8. ESQ says

      That’s right! When you compromise it is a loss!

  3. EruditeMan says

    There is no such thing as “balanced gun control”. What does it take for US Constitution Amendment 2 “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” To be understood? What is it about “shall not be infringed” can’t be comprehended? Black’s law dictionary: “shall” is to be construed as “may,”. INFRINGEMENT: A breaking into; a trespass or encroachment upon;
    a violation of a law, regulation, contract, or right. When one reads the Federalist Papers it is seen that this amendment exists to give USA residents ability to defend against USA Government as well as personal self defense. So-called gun laws have a single purpose: encroachment on the “right” to buy/have/own a gun. Nowhere in this Amendment does it say anything about any restriction on the type of “Arms” that “shall not be infringed”.

    1. tinkerunique says

      WANT FACTS ? Look up the “Efficiency of Militia Bill” (1902) and the “Dick Act” (1909) for the definition of “militia” AND how many guns a person is allowed. The wording is specific, as is the Constitution.

      1. Lynn Todd says

        Keep in mind, that the government has made changes to the Constitution in their favor, to prevent the citizens from rising up and protecting ourselves against them.

      2. Vernon Cunningham says

        Besides the Militia, there are many thousands of patriots, veterans, farmers, hunters, gun club members, Mothers with attitude, and a good aim,. I think we have the numbers to make a stand. When the need arises, many will die, but we do so for our kids, our country, and because it may be fun to do a positive thing.

        1. tinkerunique says

          Instead of assuming what those “articles” mean, look up the specific wording. … also includes “shall not be repealed”.

          1. Vernon Cunningham says

            Why do you assume that we assume the meaning of things and haven’t understood the specific intent of the measure, law, or article? I stand by the one that says ” shall not be infringed. ” That is fairly specific. Which one is ” shall not be repealed?”

    2. Conservative says

      INFRINGEMENT: A breaking into, a trespass,…….So why are we granting amnesty to millions who have trespassed, encroached, violated law & regulations, contracts or rights given to legal citizens of the U.S.

      Why are the Obama and the liberal Progressives not stopping those who have INFRINGED on citizens of the U.S. What part of infringe don’t they understand? Do we citizens need a militia to stop this invasion?

      1. Vernon Cunningham says

        soon you may need the militia to protect us against a government gone wild.

        1. Lynn Todd says

          Because they ‘need’ them for their votes that’s why they won’t stop them from infringing! Who else will continue to vote them in other than those they help the most?

        2. michaelcain says

          That time is at hand

          1. Vernon Cunningham says

            I believe we are prepared in Illinois. But look at our past governors. We have had to be prepared.

      2. michaelcain says

        Appearantly it will come to that as those in power feel, that it is necessary to get more power to sustain their existence and that this invasion will generate a complete new set of people to govern.

    3. Lynn Todd says

      Defend against government? Lol, that’s an oxymoron, they changed our Constitution so that we could not defend ourselves against them!

      1. Vernon Cunningham says

        Lynn, get a gun, learn how to shoot, get some survival gear, and wait for the shots to be heard around the world. We the people are stronger and more prepared than you might imagine.

        1. Lynn Todd says

          I have no doubt that we are stronger and more prepared than many people may think Vernon, and believe me, I do own guns and certainly know how to use them. If the last time I use one is to protect my right to own one and to protect myself, then so be it.

          1. Vernon Cunningham says

            Lynn, you warm the cockles of my heart. I am always gratified when good people make a stand.

          2. Lynn Todd says

            Thank you Vernon 🙂

            Wish I had the power to make a stand right now believe me! Everything I have worked for is being taken away and I’m now powerless to do anything about it. Sadly, our courts and way of life revolves around tons of money or credit; which thanks to some I no longer have any of.

          3. Lynn Todd says

            Thank you Vernon, I will certainly take that as compliment 🙂 <3

    4. michaelcain says

      It is the new political attitude of I can and will change what ever I wish to suit my desires.So stop all government actions by not following their demands.,What are they going to,do put all of us in jail ?? then who would do their bidding //??who would pay their big salaries ??/

  4. Kent2012 says

    more commie clowns pretending to be Real Americans that love America instead of followers of joe stalin and his daddy lenin…

  5. tinkerunique says

    We heard that “disease” could be CONTROLLED” when Slick Willy was POTUS. Crooks and thugs WILL get guns “on the street” just like they do drugs. Just like 0’bummer wants “compromise” HIS WAY. Take guns away from lawful citizens while giving guns to the Mexican cartel ? We need to enact and/or enforce a law that makes a mandatory sentence for any crime INVOLVING a gun, not restricting lawful citizens.

  6. let justice roll says

    All violence is a social issue, not a health issue. We no longer punish criminals, we rehabilitate them. Prison is an upgrade in lifestyle for many inmates. Our jails are full of illegal immigrants who have committed violent crimes and our borders are still left open for more to lowlifes to come in. Guns in the hands of responsible citizens are a deterrent to violence. That fact cannot be denied, so liberals just ignore it.

    1. Kent2012 says

      prisons and jails should be run the way Sheriff Joe Arpaio runs his operations…he takes the tack that they are there for a reason and that reason is not “vacation”. In addition he has done a neat little thing with assuming the animal control operations for the county and “rehabilitating” a number of the inmates with their involvement in something other than learning new “criminal trades” and “networking” with other convicts so that they can get “hooked up” when they are let out of jail early…

  7. John R. Turner says

    I used to find it difficult to understand how liberals think, then I realized that they do not really think, they mimic. They need someone to tell them how to live, eat and how to think. They will take some radicals dogma, “Guns Kill” and treat it as gospel. The fact that a gun of any kind is an inanimate object and can not on its own accord load, cock, aim and fire itself. The fact that it takes a human to do so completely escapes their puny minds. If they realized that it takes a person with criminal intent to shoot someone their whole world would collapse.

    They could no longer claim that the murderer is just a victim, that the gun made him do it or that it was societies or his families fault. They would finally have to admit that there are actually evil people out there and that they are the criminals not the victims. That almost all of those in prison are actually bad people and it was their crimes that put them there, not society.

    1. Kent2012 says

      the coffee shop pseudo intellectual philosophers are convinced that America is a racist country due to having a population composed of 13% Americans with ancestry in Africa and a prison population of 35 to 45% african descent…these twits obviously feel that in America roving police patrols stop and snatch up innocent blacks and send them directly to jail….maybe they need to hang around in Ferguson for a few days…

    2. Conservative says

      Knives, clubs, swords, electrical cords, fire all are capable of killing. Should we ban all these?

  8. WhiteFalcon says

    Anything coming out of Hollywood is biased against freedom. Those people all have more money than brains by far, and they are virtually all far left liberals, in short they are communists or Naizs or fascists, they are all the same thing which is total tyranny. During WWII many of them were honorable people that believed in and supported freedom and many of them were involved in the war effort, some in combat rolls. Today that isn’t the case most of the time.

    1. Kent2012 says

      the rolls have been reversed, today most of them are the “enemy” of traditional America….they want the perverted commie land crap…they are not bright enough to realize that there are no “stars” in roosha….

  9. Conservative says

    Gun sales in Ferguson has skyrocketed in preparation for the planned rioting by the neanderthals. I wonder what kind of background check was done before these guns were sold. With these riots beings planned by people and groups like Al Sharpton I wonder who gave these savages the money to buy these guns.

    1. Kent2012 says

      hopefully the largest number of gun sales are to non-rioting Ferguson residents that are “law-abiding” Americans instead of traveling rioter/looter/protesters….

    2. Vernon Cunningham says

      They must still follow the law. There is a waiting period and a background cgheck, so only qualified people can buy weapons. I suppose that means a lot of Blacks will not be able to get a weapon unless a friend or family member can qualify. Should a person want a gun, they will get one in spite of laws.

      1. bill says

        in Mo. there is no waiting period or background checks required to purchase a gun.

        1. Vernon Cunningham says

          I live in ILlinois, so I still have to follow My states requirements,.

    3. Michael Dennewitz says

      The drugs paid for the “unregistered” guns, and once it goes down, a dollar to your dime says that NONE of those weapons will be traceable!!

    4. michaelcain says

      They used their welfare rent money and traded their food stamps to get these guns

    5. Vernon Cunningham says

      Most of the rioters won’t know how to properly handle a weapon. But those of us with legitimate causes are prepared, and have more than a saturday night special. But I doubt they will use weapons to any extent. when they get guns, they shoot each other.

  10. WhiteFalcon says

    I doubt that the governor of MO. will do much to stop the rioting. The last time he called out the guard, they didn’t have any bullets in their guns, so the rioting and looting went on un abated. I suspect that will be the case this time as well. If the order had gone out in the beginning that looters would be shot, a great deal of the damage that happened would not have happened.Few people have the guts to issue that order any more.

    1. michaelcain says

      Yes it is not politically correct to fight the black rioters with loaded guns. so loot ands steal every thing so as to be politically correct. maybe we can use the illegals to fight the rioters they are not obligated to political correctness.

  11. Combatvet52 says

    Hollywood sin city Liberal morons trying to us how to live, i believe in God I’m a true Patriot fought for my country and have owned guns since i was a young boy and these liberal morons want to take my rights away, not gonna happen not with this Vet.

  12. Seeking only the truth says

    This will never happen, but I’m going to mention this anyway. The article states, naturally civilians should not have nuclear devices, or other wmd. So, what is to stop a tyrant, like Barry, who doesn’t care about anyone but himself, including no one in his family, from using a nuclear device against the populace, whether they are rebeling or not, unless that populace can respond in kind?

  13. Grtgrandpa-Tom says

    What happened in Jerusalem terrorist attack demonstrates MEAT CLEAVERS can be used just like a gun to kill people.

    1. michaelcain says

      Yes as well as sharpened axes, scisors and kitchen knifes . screwdrivers and lead pencils when the need is there it will be done and by any means possible

  15. Arcturus6 says

    The Huffington Post is nothing more than a pathetic liberal/marxist rag, steeped in yellow journalism. It appeals to those unable to recognize the truth for what it is. This latest effort by gun control zealots is nothing new.

  16. Vernon Cunningham says

    Why should I compromise on my right to bear arms? Once I accept some limitation, others will follow until I lose everything and the government has total control. At this point I must have permission to own a weapon. That was not the intention of the 2nd amendment. I mut have a FOID card, Then I must be investigated by the FBI before I can pick up my weapon, and wait 2 or more days, usually more, before I can take the weapon home encased, without bullets near the weapon. The 2nd amendment never said that was necessary. How much compromise must I make before The state will want to pick up and ban weapons?

  17. Warren Cohen says

    the next time one of my firearms goes off without someone pulling the trigger, I’ll take
    to a witchdoctor rather than a gunsmith. The violence problem in this country will not be solved by more firearms regulation; Chicago is the perfect
    example of this fallacy.

    A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots!

    If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but

    not for entering and remaining in the country illegally — you might

    live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or

    to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion — you might

    live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a

    check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not

    to vote for who runs the government — you might live in a nation that

    was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from

    owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but gives twenty

    F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt — you might live in a

    nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If, in the nation’s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but

    not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make

    you fat — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is

    run by idiots.

    If an 80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl who is confined to a

    wheelchair can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman

    in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head

    searched — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but

    is run by idiots.

    If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions

    of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more — you might live in a

    nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his

    teacher is “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class

    in grade school is perfectly acceptable — you might live in a nation

    that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more

    government regulation and intrusion, while not working is rewarded with

    Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free

    cell phones — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses

    but is run by idiots.

    If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to

    provide incentives for not working, by granting 99 weeks of unemployment

    checks, without any requirement to prove that gainful employment was

    diligently sought, but couldn’t be found — you might live in a nation

    that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest

    big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a

    wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government

    forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage — you might live in a

    nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself

    makes you more “safe” according to the government — you might live in a

    nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If the media panders to your openly socialist leader while the IRS targets groups with dissenting views— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If your government ‘cracks down’ on legal gun sales to law abiding citizens while secretly supplying illegal guns to Mexican drug cartels— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If your local government (Chicago) outlawed gun ownership for ‘the safety of its citizens’ and now boasts the worst murder rate in the country — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    The reality that most sheeple aren’t willing to face is that REVOLUTION will be the SOLUTION as it was in 1776! We’v had the 200+ year run as most democracies do and now it’s done as TYRANTS are in POWER and they aren’t about to cede this TOTALITARISM that they have achieved by being ever so patient, for decades, and infiltraing every facet of societyas they predicted that they woul do!; once they get our guns -they eventually will – then we’re officially done!

  23. Arizona Don says

    As a nation the most difficult fight of our existence is upon us. A battle within the nation. The American voter took the first step in the last election of a recovery effort from this obama debacle that is systematically destroying this once great nation. A journey of a thousand miles “begins” with the first step. This recovery will be a long and arduous trip. It will depend on what happens in 16’s election now if in fact it can get any easier. However, as I have been saying ever since we were promised an (unexplained) fundamental transformation, “transformation is something no American asked for, few if any desire and no patriot will accept at least peacefully.” That transformation is one man’s (obama’s) dream, it is not an American dream. This nations citizens having lived in a Constitutional Republic will not easily be transformed into a communistic, fascist or even an Islamic caliphate dictatorship. Including even those who ignorantly (blindly) support the obama policies at this time. There may be extreme push back from as many as a hundred million patriotic American citizens. Within the obama supporters there are uninformed, misinformed, and under informed citizens who are waking up gradually.

    There is no positive assurance however, that some of the Republicans will be better to any degree then the progressive Democrats. Here’s why. Lets face it the communists or fascists are determined to, as Stalin said, “bury us.” If they fail with the Democrats don’t expect them to give up. They are determined. They will at least attempt to take over the Republican party while remaining in control of the Democratic party. We must be equally determined along with aware at all times of what is happening, if we are to survive as a free nation. Therefore, it will be necessary to keep close tabs on whoever is in the office of president and congress. For way to long the American voter voted politicians into office and forgot about them and they went their own way. Many times not in the best interest of the nation. Governments, all governments that is, are inherently corrupt. They always seek more power then the constitution allows. We witness this fact daily right now. Starting at least with Wilson the executive branch has usurped power to the point we find ourselves today. Although there have been many presidents (not all) who have abused the office the current one is far worse then any others perhaps many combined.

    This promised transformation will have to start with disarming the American people. So those who support that are the enemy of our constitution and liberty. Whether knowingly or not the end result is the same. “They are the enemy.” Make no mistake about that. If we allow ourselves to be disarmed we will at the same time be surrendering to policies we may never support. Which may very well contribute to our demise. Be aware the UN small arms treaty may be a threat next month. We have a president who supports it.

    Disarming America is not going to happen at once like eliminating the second amendment, it will and has been coming in dribbles, a little at a time actually since 1927. Like boiling the frog. If the water is heated slowly he does not notice it until it is to late. History is our teacher and our proof that we are correct. We must learn from the mistakes of others because no one lives long enough to make them all themselves. That may include this nation as well.

  24. fred says

    Here is my compromise on gun control. They must allow us our constitutional rights or we send THEM to jail if they try to take that right away! The founding fathers saw this coming a mile away! They knew there would be tyrants that were afraid of us until they tried to take our defenses away! Look at mexico, england, australia, they have become horrible places for crime because the criminals are now the only ones who have weapons! Think, people! Nothing about Hollywood is “balanced”, just their communist politics and jewish 100% ownership and control of all media!

  25. John R. Turner says

    Sitting here thinking about these hollywierd gun fearing idiots and I had an epiphany, “For an industry that makes an awful lot of their money by using guns in their movies along with all of the violence that they portray, are the not biting the hand that feeds them”.

    Typical liberal bullshit, “Do as I Say, Not as I Do”.

    Oh goody….so now we have “hollywood” telling us what our rights are? So, your saying “honey boo boo and that dumb useless fat ass kim kardashian is dictating to the populace who has the rights to own a gun??? Oh for the “sake” of the children and safety, of course……*sigh*

  29. ScranunSlim says

    AHH-GAIN — the relevant analogy between the 1st and 2nd Amendments is NOT the tired ol’ FIRE!-in-a-crowded-theater trope favored by the likes of William Jefferson Buttafuco and Prezidunce Barack “If I had a son, he woulda sounded like Bill Ayers” O’Selfie

    The REAL analogy is this:
    You don’t like flag-burning? TOO BAD – it’s speech protected by the 1st Amendment.
    You don’t like “assault weapons?” TOO BAD – it’s protected by the 2nd Amendment.

  30. JIMBO says

    The Hollywood documentary on gun control is attacking the wrong problem. They need to come on with something to address the problem with racial riots when the black population doesn’t get there way. I think very one that is paying attention to what is going on in the Midwest will get my point.

  31. Mark Forrer says

    Why should government be in charge of gun control anyway???

  32. Alan404 says

    While I might await this “documentary”, and would welcome even handed, honest treatment of the subject, I’m not holding my breath waiting for the same from Hollywood.You see,unfortunately blue is not my best color, and I tend to turn bluish as a result of holding my breath for prolonged periods of time.

    Guns have nothing to with your safety TO LIVE. But it has EVERYTHING to do with TYRANTS (aka lieberals DYING).

    Why?

    Because DOCTORS and their DRUG REGIMENTS kill a HUNDRED FOLD more Americans than anything else. And don’t get me started on POOLS DROWNING CHILDREN and dozens of other “stuff” that kill everything from the elderly to the unborn – like abortion.

    Abortion destroys a nation. Is genocide. Leaves the elderly with no family to take care of them. Promotes selfish adults in their prime. (See the way people act lately?)

    So, why are these LIEberals concerned about our safety over guns all of sudden? That’s right, it’s about THEIR SAFETY. They LIVE and you get to DIE!

  35. Javiersteva says

    When Hollywierd (the demoacratic socialist party) does anything balanced it means tilted to one extreme, theirs!

  36. catman says

    If it came out of “Hollywierd”, it is anything but balanced. Even a complete and total ban on firearms will only ensure the criminal element will have them. Actually, it is quite simple, with the proper equipment, to manufacture a fully functional firearm. Maybe not as sophisticated as what we now have, but fully functional
    none the less.
    I think the real answer to gun violence is very strict enforcement of existing gun laws. Badass caught with a gun doing a crime, Mr. Badass get’s an automatic 5 years on top of what the instant offence get’s him.
    Mr. Badass uses said gun to wound a victim during said instant offence and he get’s 10-20 years depending upon the severity of the wound. Mr. Badass kills a victim during the commission of the instant offence and he get’s the death penalty. Said death penalty to be carried out with only one appeal to the state supreme court.
    All prison sentences would be done in addition to what the instant offence demands. NO time off for good behavior or other such nonsense and that includes parole. Look at how many parolees commit crimes after release because the parole board felt they were good candidates for release. Yeah right !!!!
    COMMIT THE CRIME……….DO THE TIME !!!!
    Having worked in the prison industry for many years, I have witnessed the “revolving” door. Some came back so damned fast I doubt if they even made it to their front door. One in particular was released in the morning, attempted a strong arm robbery in a small neighboring town from the prison and was returned that afternoon by the county sheriff. But then again, nobody has ever accused the criminal element of being rocket scientists or belonging to a brain trust.

  37. Larry Cowden says

    Compromise never equals freedom from gun control idiots desire to apply more and more restrictions. Liberal never means freedom of thought or actions! It means total uncompromising control over the people, what they say, what they do. Compromise to them is you will do it their way without any question, under threat and without freedom of choice. To be liberal is to reinforce the ideas of the slavers years ago where slaves, white and black, were kept under total control by any means! Now applied to this day and age, it seeks to achieve the same over US citizens until a total police state under socialist control is achieved. Disarm first, deny freedom of speech next, intimidate with police and federal power, and then overturn the existing form of government by martial law.

  38. bill says

    in Mo. there is no waiting period or background checks required to purchase a gun. this is how it should be
    in the entire United States. some people keep trying to ban guns claiming that the guns kill people. why aren’t they trying to ban automobiles also. the autos kill more than guns do by far. no one has a problem with an 18 year old purchasing a 700 horsepower mustang or Camaro. they don’t try to ban the autos because they look scary or that NO ONE ever needs a 700 horse power auto to drive on the public streets. they don’t sell “assault weapons” either. the last time an assault weapon was available to the general public was in the mid 1920s. prior to that ANYONE could buy a full auto weapon ….

  39. bill says

    people keep talking compromise , compromise , compromise. here’s a compromise for you who want compromise. keep Obama care and compromise by adding a codicil to the law that REQUIRES EVERY government employee from city , county , state and federal payrolls to ONLY obtain medical insurance from Obama care , have automatic payroll deduction AND abide by the subsidies that are now in place. how’s that for a compromise.
    just a little more rant. !!! get the USA out of the UN and get the UN out of the USA!!!

        Shooting everyone in site. Having a hard time today. I quite.

  43. Arizona Don says

    Without the second amendment the whole of the constitution would undoubtably not exist today. It would have been destroyed by another democrat Woodrow Wilson, or perhaps FDR who actually did try to increase the size of the supreme court to get it lopsided in favor of democrats so he could enact his own ideas upon the nation.

    Now we have obama who sees the whole constitution restricting him as unnecessary and useless. He also knows in order to get rid of the constitution he must first negate in some way the second amendment. Such a movement will, beyond a shadow of a doubt, start an armed conflict here in the US. Most conservatives will not stand for such acts, at least peacefully.

    Murders take place with a number of weapons not just guns, yet this government and even some outside government (Hollywood for instance) who are not wise enough to see what the problem really is are adding to the problem. Anyone who goes against both facts and history does not show such traits as wisdom, intelligence and/or experience so they cannot even be a factor to be considered. If it were only guns that were used to murder people attacking the gun would make sense, it is not! Take all the guns away and killings would not stop. There are dozens of ways other then guns to kill. To go after the root cause of murder it must first be determined who, not what, it is that kills. Furthermore, more lives are saved with guns each year then are taken but the gun is not at fault. It is the people. Punish the real perpetrator the person using the gun not the tool. Make any crime committed with a gun a minimum of life in prison with no chance of parol. And also bring back the death penalty and use it. Make the punishment severe enough and crime with a gun will subside.

    Those who support more gun control cannot explain how more will fix a problem the laws on the books now have not fixed. There are now somewhere between five and ten thousand gun control laws on the books (in all fifty states) all have been passed since 1927, by just such people as those who made this documentary and obviously they do no good as far as the gun control advocates are concerned. So explain how more will work to curtail violence. If the second amendment were interpreted correctly all would be unconstitutional. Shall not be infringed. What does that mean?

    There are laws against bank robbery and murder and yet it still happens everyday. Nothing is wrong with seeking a utopia but it must be realized we are already very close to one relative to many other nations. Furthermore, a utopia is not possible without freedoms so taking away a freedom cannot ever create a utopia. So why destroy what we have seeking better when it will never actually be realized.

    It must further be realized eliminating guns may make everything worse not better. Who among the gun control advocates considers such a possibly, anyone? The guns were taken away in many nations during the twentieth century and somewhere between 170 and 250 million people were (mass) murdered by their own government. Who thinks that was good? Who also thinks that could not happen here? This government has already slaughtered people (native Americans) because other people looked the other way. Are we going to repeat such a mistake?

  44. akoby says

    Well, we just lost another round today. Break the law, come into the country illegally, but because some elitist feels guilty about illegals making their beds for them and mowing their lawns for them, now we give them amnesty. What a slap in the face to any law-abiding citizen. Amnesty for 5 million illegals is the same thinking libs used with the banks who sold bad mortgage backed securities. Both knew what they were doing was wrong, but we heard “too big to fail” over and over. How do we deport millions of people is just another “too big to fail” argument.

  45. amigo says

    One thing that no liberal understands is that a firearm is neither legal or illegal it is an inanimate object. The user who takes the firearm and robs a store is acting in illegal manner while using a firearm. Have you ever heard of an illegal car even though it was involved in a hit and run.

  46. farrightwing says

    No more compromise! Now that we are in control, you must compromise with us which means no compromise when it comes to the second amendment!

    I am soooooo sick of this anti-gun crowd demanding compromise, common sense gun laws, restrictions, limitations, registrations, comprehensive this or that. We all know NONE of this will deter a criminal from doing as they will to get what they want. I’ve got 15 firearms and lots of ammo, a liberal would pass out if they saw my gun safe. None of what I have is dangerous to anyone unless they try to rob me or threaten me or my community. They simply don’t like guns. I don’t like Progressives or Liberals or Tyranny so lets compromise, you leave me and my guns alone and I won’t puke on you for making me sooooo sick.
