Samuel L. Jackson:
Guns, Movies, Video Games
Have Nothing to Do with
Sandy Hook

Breitbart Big Hollywood, by Ben Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/18/2012 4:30:23 PM

Samuel L. Jackson, one of the stars of the new Quentin Tarantino-directed, Harvey Weinstein-produced Django Unchained, is speaking out against those who would restrict access to firearms or scale back violence in films in reaction to the massacre in Sandy Hook. Said Jackson: "I don´t think it´s about more gun control. I grew up in the South with guns everywhere and we never shot anyone. This [shooting] is about people who aren´t taught the value of life … I don’t think movies or video games have anything to do with it.” Jackson added, “We need to stop deranged people

The right to defend yourself via gun ownership and the 2nd Amendment crosses all barriers of race, class, sex, orientation, age, political ideology.. you name it. THIS is the wall Obama and his gun grabbing ideologues will run into if they come after the People´s guns. Most people in their heart of hearts have a healthy distrust of government. Good!!

Madison Avenue just shut down. Networks are closing because now everyone realizes advertising is a waste of money. In fact Samuel Jackson has sworn off any more political ads because none of those work either.

If you don´t think entertainment, educates, you are very confused. Thousands of hours of entertainment/education is the reason every dope in America thinks they are some kind of expert about firearms. They don´t have to actually use them or be taught at a range, they´ve seen everyone from the Lone Ranger to Samuel L. Jackson shooting everything from a single action revolver to full auto, two in each fist Glocks. None of that fires up the Travis Bickels of the world and interactive shooting would not make it even worse for that population. No really, it doesn´t feed a hunger in them any more than food commercials make you hungry.

Some twisted citizens like Mr. Jackson perhaps, should never, ever, touch a firearm or a car. Classifying everyone as that kind of person and disarming them only makes more prey for criminals who will always be armed with something. Focus on them, and clean up the ´entertainment´ while you are at it.

People aren´t taught to value life? Now what would cause that? Maybe kids growing up knowing that they could have been one of the million plus babies aborted every year for the convenience of the "mothers"? Those aborted kids may be missing from the classrooms and playgrounds but their absence has an impact on everyone.

Every American under the age of forty should be given a tee shirt that says, "I survived Roe v Wade".

he is factually correct although his point on valuing life is about as true as you can get.

people who are not 100% "normal"; people need psychiatric help, are more likely to be affected by violent games and other violent entertainment. the thought of going into a classroom and shooting a roomful of children is not a thought that comes naturally.

It has a LOT to do with the lack of respect for and value of life. Yes, mental illness has a lot to do with it too. While we certainly do not want to make it easy for an unstable person to get hold of a weapon, restricting guns more is not the answer. And while most violence in the mass media is not going to send people on rampages, there is a level of hardcore gore, depraved perversity, and sick kinds of violent depictions that goes beyond acceptable that easily can send a twisted mind to act upon his urges. Our society has no standards anymore. We no longer show good triumphing over evil in movies. Instead, we glorify the killers, the thugs, the evil-doers... Good is portrayed as bad or as corny. Bad is portrayed as desirable and cool. Yes, there is social responsibility needed in media & entertainment industries that is sorely lacking. Jackson is right this time on many points. But a lot of entertainment is so bad now that it makes Tarentino and Rodriguez movies look G-rated.

The parasite is partially correct. Can´t you see what he´s doing. He´s trying to save his industry from accountability by dropping guns in the mix.

It won´t be long until Hanks, Weinstein, Clooney and the other deviant morons get their talking points and come out defending their sick industry.

The truth is that a steady diet of unspeakable violence for weak minded people like the dude in CT does result in bad outcomes. Those that insist on empirical data are only kidding themselves for ignoring the effects of extreme violence and how it contributes to violence perpetrated for real. This is not the singular cause for these events. There is family breakdown, no spiritual guide, no friends, no nothing. Sounds familiar.

While I agree with him on this matter, based on the comments that he made in the last election, I´m pretty sure that he is one of the ´´deranged´´ people that we need to protect society from (at least stop him from ever voting again since he is obviously too insane and racially motivated to be trusted with that great responsibility!!!)

Jackson astutely separates guns from murders, citing the times when guns have been even less restricted and more commonly owned, while murders were far lower.

We´ve never had this much graphic violence in entertainment (at least since Roman Colloseum times). Which gives us no examples to cite where the accused factor was present without the negative consequences, for those factors.

Quentin Tarantino´s recent, rude, accusatory refusals to even talk about the issue cemented his place on my growing never-watch-again list.

NATO announced Wednesday that it is enhancing its military footprint on its eastern flank, and the alliance’s top military commander in Europe hinted that in light of Russia’s recent aggression, it is “important that we take a pause and determine what is appropriate for [the size of] U.S. forces in Europe.” The number of U.S. troops in Europe has dropped dramatically since the Soviet Union collapsed. More recently, the Obama administration has touted its “pivot” to Asia. Supreme Allied Commander Europe Gen.

With total student loans exceeding $1 trillion, one must ask “is the tassel worth the financial hassle” when it comes to spending for prestigious colleges. Here’s my rough rule of thumb for taking on student loan debt: “Think long and hard about taking on more in total student loans than you expect to earn, on average, in your first 10 years after graduating.” That’s a mouthful so let me put some numbers on it. If you expect your average annual income over the first 10 years you are out of school to be $50,000, be really, really careful about taking

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
