The truth behind gun violence

The truth behind gun violence

Remember the movie “A Few Good Men” with Jack Nicholson saying to Tom Cruise: “The truth, you want the truth? You can’t handle the truth!” That is what I say to President Obama, he can’t handle the truth.

Aren’t we all just a little bit tired of listening to the rhetoric, and the smoke and mirrors he promotes concerning gun violence in America? He should leave law abiding gun owners alone, and tackle the real reasons we have gun violence every day in our moral decaying American society.

Every Law abiding citizen feels horrible about the recent tragedy that took the lives of so many innocents, but for the president to take to the soap box and be disingenuous about Band-Aid attempts to solve violence in America, is insulting, to say the least. For someone so pre-disposed to issue executive privileges like a doctor handing out scripts, why doesn’t he issue them where the root of the problems are, and stop insulting our intelligence?

Anyone with half a brain knows that the roots of our moral decay promoting gun violence lie in the violent media that produce over the top violent movies, video games, gangsta rap music, and on and on. Turn on your TV, channel surf regular programming and try to find one decent program that doesn’t promote illicit sex and violence.

The president should stop pandering to the Hollywood crowd and TV producers that saturate our society with this filth. How about an executive order to bring back censorship guidelines like we had in the ’50s and ’60s, or is he afraid to take on the left wing ACLU and others of their ilk?
