violence

Awwwwww yeah our guy has his first episode up:

For some reason I was initially surprised it had the same format as his regular YouTube videos.  The sound, and video clarity of course was noticeably tier 1 (which we’ve come to expect from the NRA).  Good stuff, so next up I was bracing for what I would see/hear…

Violence in the inner city!  Hot button topic for sure.  He definitely delivered a fact smackdown as expected.  LOL at the “sweet little Andre turned into Lil’ Pookie”  haha well played on keeping that in NRA, that’s sure to piss people off.

1:56 – OH Shit… he called out the president!  *music change* Oh what a fact-slaughter… this is going to piss people off too, nice work.

MrColionNoir-Ignorance-And-PoliticsI’m looking forward to seeing more from MrColionNoir and the NRA for sure.  My biggest worry is that they would have presented a watered down version of him, which really didn’t seem like the case at all.

Oh yea and Collins, the denim button up shirt… Balmain?  Either way, you’re looking sharp!

Thoughts?  Was this video what you expected?

Under the guise of preventing gun violence:

Neighborhood Gun Dealers:

OMG FFLs being ran out of houses!  People will surely die.

Concealed carry, u so crazy:

Dude is angry.

Mothers of gun victims:

A handgun killed the white lady’s son!  I sure hope that handgun is dead or in jail… we need to keep killer handguns off the streets.

Gun Violence Is Out Of Control:

Handguns kill more kids than car crashes in CA?  Data please.  Also, there they go again blaming handguns.

Too, too many guns:

Yea let’s demonize handguns some more.

School Shooting:

That’s the kind of message that actually makes sense.  Well 1 in 6 isn’t too bad I suppose.

So basically without handguns the world would be a violence free utopia, that’s the message I’m getting. *eye roll*

I’m a strong believe in not passing the blame onto inanimate objects such as guns.  The core of the problem is stupid people.

I don’t know when the above commercials were made, but they look pretty damn old.  Even the clothes they are wearing look dated.

You can catch up on some of their propaganda at PreventViolence.org.

To be fair, Prevent Violence also campaigns against child abuse, domestic violence, rape etc… I’ve got to wonder though, are they not blaming people in that too?  Like maybe if someone was hitting their child with a extension cord do you blame the cord?   Ban extension cords!

Thoughts?

Apparently these “fans” that went to her concert there haven’t been following her that closely:

Madonna’s second act at her show Thursday night at the Pepsi Center in Denver featured the 54-year-old singer using a fake gun to shoot a masked gunman and images of blood splattering on a large screen behind the stage. She used the set for her performances in other cities for the song “Gang Bang,” which includes the lyrics “shot my lover in the head.”

Full story over at the NYPost.

You can check out this video to see what they were so upset about.  The particular clip I linked is from a Las Vegas show, but it’s the same song.

The article is full of derp, including one paragraph that quotes Denver sports radio personality Peter Burns saying “It sort of hits closer to home for me” when asked to describe how he felt about the imagery at the concert considering he lost a friend in the Aurora theater shooting.   Really?  Seeing Madonna do her dumb shit on stage made you finally put things in perspective?  *smh*  whatever.

You might remember a couple other times I posted about her guns on stage, one being in the controversy it created in Israel, and the other being a boring rant about how she uses guns as a metaphor which she posted on her blog.

She’s 54.  You’d think by now she would be done with pissing people off, and leave it to the younger ones in the business.

I like Brad Pitt more and more every time new info comes out about him.

DailyMail interviewed him and asked some hard hitting questions about his thoughts on guns, gun laws, violence etc.. and here are some of his answers:

When asked about violence in film, specifically Killing Them Softly (one he produced):  

“It’s a violent world we live in, I don’t agree with trying to hide that or cover it up.”

Interestingly enough the article states that was before the Aurora CO James Holmes killings, and Pitt stood by what he said when they asked him the question again after.

He doesn’t believe US gun laws should be changed:

America is a country founded on guns. It’s in our DNA. It’s very strange but I feel better having a gun. I really do. I don’t feel safe, I don’t feel the house is completely safe, if I don’t have one hidden somewhere. That’s my thinking, right or wrong.

I got my first BB gun (a type of air gun) when I was in nursery school. I got my first shotgun by first grade (aged six), I had shot a handgun by third grade (aged eight) and I grew up in a pretty sane environment.

I was in the UK when the shootings happened and I did hear the discussion about gun control start again, and as far as I know it petered out as it always does.  It’s just something with us. To turn around and ask us to give up our guns… I don’t know, we’re too afraid that we’re going to give up ours and the bad guys are still going to get theirs. It’s just in our thinking. I’m telling you, we don’t know America without guns.

If you have time you should read the entire article over at DailyMail.  Also noteworthy is the fact that Pitt apparently spent £250,000 (~$400,000) on a shooting range and armory at their Southern France house (hahah yea definitely enough room for one here), as a wedding present for his fiance Angelina Jolie.

What’s not to like about this guy?

In an old episode of their show called Bullshit!:

Unless you’re real uptight, all the Penn & Teller Bullshit! episodes are pretty awesome.

Nothing too surprising in this episode (or a lot of the other ones), but they are mainly funny because they make some people look like idiots, debunk myths with facts and non scientific demonstrations… basically just a lot of fun.

(8:41) – Kind of rude the Marine let Harrison shoot that AR-15 improperly (pictured below)… no wonder the little guy didn’t want to shoot more than one round he basically got rocked in the shoulder and cheek then cried about it.

Hat tip: David B.

Samuel L Jackson is awesome, but I haven’t been able to take him seriously since Chappelle parodied him.  One of my favorite Chappelle skits of all time.

Can you stop yelling at me please?
No I can’t stop yelling because that’s the way I talk!

The PSA seems to have a anti-gun feel, but at the same time anti gun violence.  That line is often blurred when the message isn’t clearly spelled out.

What’s your take?
