Making Stricter Gun Control Laws is NOT The Answer

Making stricter gun control laws is not going to curb random acts of violence in a country where the average 16 year-old has seen over 200,000 televised murders, half of which  are enacted in the same manner as how people died in the holocaust.

The real assault weapons are the emotions of violence that are broadcasted on television day after day. Watching television is a form of meditation. If you really want to see less tragic acts of violence in America, see what happens when people start boycotting network stations that televised random acts of violence as part of their programming and watch how quickly things will change.

I can’t understand how people can ask “why?” while a major part of the population enjoys watching people getting murdered on television as a form of entertainment. The only people who want to see change are those who refuse to view the destruction of human life as a form of entertainment. This whole thing about making tougher gun laws is just a distraction to the real issue at hand. It really has nothing to with a solution, though it may be a tool used in the crime; it is not the crime itself. The IRA is a willing scapegoat. Debates over such will always be used by the media to disarm people. Times are changing, really? Discussion about tougher gun laws should have been taken care of when JFK was assassinated, later John Lennon.  If you have a political agenda that you need to accomplish, you start getting the American people emotional over some tragedy and you will see that things will change but not towards the development of peace and the evolution of man.

I feel sorry for all the people who buy into the media’s shortcut solution and never get to the root of the problem.  You mean to tell me you can entertain Americans with PG and R rated “fictional snuff” films and no one can see that the desire to kill people is created with what we entertain our minds with not the tools that do the job. I feel sorry for you.

  1. TV, movies and computer games are basically similar to ours in the UK, and much more violent in countries like Germany, Netherlands, Japan and France, yet they all have far fewer gun deaths. It’s because they have fewer guns per person, and the ones they have are harder to qualify to own and use.

    • I lived in Norway briefly and some of the surrounding countires, TV here is much mosre violent than in the UK. i would also suggest you check the statistics you are posting, as they seem to differ from BBC News who did a report on such during the 1980’s, showing American Television was more violent. here is a link to the article:

      http://www.nytimes.com/1987/08/15/arts/bbc-study-finds-us-tv-more-violent.html

      American television is the most violent in the world. While other countries may manufacture some very brutal films and etc, these are rarities in these countries, some are not even known by the general public. I live in America and have lived in other countries, our television is the most violent because two-thirds of the programming has violence in it. Here is a report by Science Daily illustrating such:

      • I agree that American-produced content is the most violent, however, despite the Beeb’s opinion, they show films uncut there, gore, sex and bad language intact, and we censor them in the US on all public and some cable channels. The Brits get 1/3rd of their content from the US. My comparison was experiential also (from living in the countries listed) and not statistical, so perhaps it’s too anecdotal to be relevant.

        Thanks for the links. They were interesting!
