gun control

This is always interesting:

Reminds me of all the Alex Jones rants about this sort of thing.  I watched a few of them, and there was definite confirmation bias so I lost interest.  On a related note, is Alex Jones still around and ranting? (nm I guess he is… he appears at 10min in this video).   Seems like he entirely vanished off the face of the internet since Trump got elected.  I imagine if Hillary got in, it would have been much better for his business haha

Man, I’m not saying David Hogg is a “Crisis Actor” but holy that kid isn’t very likable.

12:40 – *spits out my coffee all over the screen and my parent’s basement carpet* ALEX JONES MAKES $50M A YEAR?! 🤔 😭

14:20 – Damn, even Wolfgang is caked up.  Those have got to be 17ft+ ceilings in the crib.

14:49 – “Guns guns guns, it’s all about guns.  New legislation.  I think there has been so much misinformation given by the national news.  Now even the president of the United States calls them out as fake news.”  I’ll agree with him on that one.

17:01 – LOL David Hogg’s mother and her friends “went after” this man who threatened her online.  LOL at it being the most effective strategy.

19:20 – WHOA now that escalated quickly.  “No one came to this place you lying sack of shit government mf sellout bitch”.

21:15 – Holy they are gonna cap this guy.  He better chill.

Like Wolfgang said, it seems to me that the media again is to blame.  We are given SO MUCH information on all these massacres, even incredibly minute details.  Since we don’t have ALL the information (homeland security reasons, graphic violence reasons etc…) people are bound to pick it apart (given what they know) and poke holes in the story which they feel was fabricated.  I really don’t think a lot of these people could be convinced otherwise, unless they actually could walk through the scene, ID the victims themselves, and be next to the medical examiner who preforms the autopsy.

Ugh This:

Physically painful to watch.  I find it bizarre that places like “College Humor” are basically content factories that just produce shit like this every single day.  I lost braincells watching it, and almost went into a coma from stupidity in the comments. To think that more than one person would have been involved in any aspect of this video is also troubling.  Ah man blogging about stuff is hard work sometimes.

Ok ok this is pretty damn funny though, I’ll give them a pass for this one:

ahhahaha this is amazing:

They really hit all the talking points with this one.  I was going through the checklist in my head and I was like ☑ every time.

The spitting was so on point, I lost my mind every time he did it. hahah

Oh sure it’s likely supposed to be “anti-gun” propaganda, but whatever I have a self deprecating sense of humor… I still find this stuff funny.

Thoughts?  You mad about the definite double standard when it comes to “racism”?

I knew this was going to be a massacre, even before I hit the play button:

Wow this first girl is awkward… Steven is obviously used to speaking in public and speaking on camera but that’s just bad.  I knew he would absolutely destroy her (which he did), when she brought up the trusting government part and having an app on her phone to call the police… yet she doesn’t trust the police.

Second guy… pro gun but believes in “some control”.  haha this guy said that violent criminals should only be “restricted to a handgun” then he said something about the Las Vegas shooting being a reason why violent criminals should only be allowed handguns and not rifles.  This is also a massacre, but this guy is more confident than the last girl so it’s funnier.  Oh man this kid is now talking about biometric handguns and the NRA.  The whole discussion kind of dragged on and went off the rails towards the end with the “I’m brown, so people are going to think I’m a terrorist if I have a gun” type talk.

Problematic haha:

Not all celebrities of course… but we all know the most vocal shit heads who don’t practice what they preach.

A movie about gun control and politics:

Wow that looks boring and embarrassing.  It’s not doing TOO terrible on IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes, so I might watch it someday if any of you guys says it’s alright.  I watched 13 hours tonight (finally), and enjoyed that.

From the director:

“We didn’t offer the script to the Brady Campaign, we didn’t offer the script to any Second Amendment groups,” director John Madden said when I asked if he had consulted with the NRA or other gun rights groups when making the film. “We didn’t want the film being adopted by one side or the other of the argument, because it isn’t a polemic. … I don’t think — the film is not political in its intent. It’s political in its milieu and it’s political in its, you know, the background of the story. But it’s more about political process to me.”

Full article on the Washington Post.  In theaters now.

Thoughts?  Any of you guys see this yet?  Looks like another lame money grab because “guns are so hot right now”.  The old throw shit at the wall and see what sticks approach seems to work decent for making money in Hollywood if you have lots of money.
