1st Amendment attacked by supporters of 2nd Amendment

NRA head attacks Hollywood.
Which movies, songs and video games would Wayne LaPierre want to censor
in order to create his perfect world of entertainment?

NRA head appoints himself God
  • Wayne LaPierre wants his 2nd Amendment respected, but he is happy to attack the other Amendments of the Bill of Rights.
  • So-called "Conservatives" are no more consistent about supporting liberty than liberals. 

I find Conservative watching both entertaining and frightening.

Liberals are a lost cause, but Conservatives at least pay lip service to the Founding Fathers and the Constitution.

But in trying to defend the 2nd Amendment a number of "Conservatives" have started to lash out at other segments of society that are protected by the Bill of Rights.

National Rifle Association executive vice president Wayne LaPierre blamed Hollywood, video games music, the courts and more for creating a culture of violence in the United States.

“The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” he said at a Washington press event, adding, “With all the money in the federal budget can’t we afford to put a police officer in every single school?”
Would "The Patriot" be too violent
for a fool like Wayne LaPierre?

Violating the 10th Amendment:   “I call on Congress today to act immediately to appropriate whatever is necessary to put armed police officers in every single school in this nation,” LaPierre said.

Earth to LaPierre, Under the 10th Amendment the Congress does not have the power to militarize and Federalize our local public school system.

Violating the 10th Amendment:   LaPierre criticized Congress for not creating a national database of the mentally ill and called for increased federal prosecution of those who illegally possess guns.

Again, gun ownership is a local affair.  Under the Constitution Congress does not have the power to create lists of any kind of people not allowed to own a gun.

And he said “the next Adam Lanza” is “waiting in the wings” and argued that copycat killers are encouraged by “a national media machine that rewards them with wall-to-wall attention and a sense of identity that they crave.”

Violating the 1st Amendment:   He also criticized the video game industry and "violent" Hollywood films such as “American Psycho” and “Natural Born Killers.”

“There exists in this country, sadly, a callous, corrupt and corrupting shadow industry that sells and sows violence against its own people through vicious, violent video games with names like ‘Bullet Storm,’ ‘Grand Theft Auto,’ ‘Mortal Combat’ and ‘Splatterhouse,’ ” LaPierre said.

Somehow attacking our 1st Amendment freedoms in order to protect our 2nd Amendment freedoms is really fucking stupid.  Would LaPierre have some Federal Commission appointed by Comrade Obama screen our movies and games for content?

Stick to defending guns Wayne.  When you open your mouth on other subjects it makes you look like a fool.

Which movies would LaPierre ban as too violent?

The Searchers (trailer)
John Wayne violently kills many people in "The Searchers".

Would Wayne LaPierre approve of the violent "Saving Private Ryan"?

Dorothy brutally kills two women in this movie, shows no
remorse and then merrily sings and skips down the road.

Do the corpses in the "The Godfather" pile up too fast for you Mr LaPierre?
