Mark, please explain how Hollywood, that obviously profits from violence, is not part of this problem. I would love to hear your excuse.
Ok. I never said Hollywood was or was not oblivious of anything. Im sure no one denies Hollywood is in the profit business. So it should be no surprise that they are doing what it takes to make their monies. So from a rational (republican mindset) One would be fine with market forces driving an industry. But being liberal Im not concerned at how much money is made. I just dont want animals getting hurt. Also one would think a rational (republican mindset) would want government out of my family business? So why is it up to gov and industry and not the parents and or teachers to teach kids about violence?
All Im saying is: The entertainment industry isn't to blame for "kids today" being hypnotized and numb to violence. To say that is to turn a blind eye to parental responsibility. ha, blind eye. Q. " Are you implying Jews are money grubbing shrews?: A. No. But I did say "Don't bash me for saying Jews".
No, you denied Hollywood is mostly liberals making big time money and said if there was big money, it was Republican Jews. The whole thing sounds like it came from deep denial of facts and some secret underground hate site.
The entertainment industry isn't to blame for "kids today" being hypnotized and numb to violence. To say that is to turn a blind eye to parental responsibility. ha, blind eye.
So, like a drug dealer, Hollywood has no responsibility for what influences a kid's life. The product is going to be sold no matter what so money can be made. But........ It's always the parents fault if things go bad. Got ya!
the Markster --- 2 hours ago - quote - hide comments Hollywood IS liberal and it is they who are making big money
News flash. The actors may or may not be liberal. But the money....all republican Jews...Dont bash me for saying jews...geez
You know, Mark, I've thought you were a lot of things over the years, but this I didn't expect. This was straight out of the Neo Nazi handbook- between your prejudice and your distain for women, you're not a liberal. You're just a POS who has his hand out. Shame on you.

You're just a POS who has his hand out. Shame on you. ================================== The Tired Old Dragon shouted from her soap box. That was just out of view. =========================== You know, Mark, I've thought you were a lot of things over the years, ============================== The memories you've made, are what is bringing in the jeers. ============================ chorus: You're just a POS who has his hand out.

Mark, you have a fantasy of being a musician- you sing at open mike nights, and at the hospital- your excuse for not having a job. You say politics is your "thing", yet all you know is what you read Occupy Democrats. I used to defend you because I felt pity for you, but I see now you're the type of person Hitler could recruit as a Brown Shirt. Look it up- maybe you'll see the resemblance. (Lucky for KU, they don't have to hear you sing that song to me-)
lol at pointing to Australia. They bought back 500k guns. We have 10,000,000 ar 15.. where will the buy back money coke from? You can't compare a country like Australia that doesn't have our gun culture. Look at Brazil and Venezuela that has our culture and strict gun laws. How's that working out ?
Consider this. There are barely 100,000 public K-12 schools in the entire US. There are literally 10's of millions of retired military and law enforcement in the US. Aside from those too old there would still be millions and millions of qualified, firearms trained individuals who could function in a security capacity.
Don't want or can't pay them? Offer a tax deduction or some other federal incentive. Many would jump at the opportunity to volunteer for security work with a little incentivization.
Obviously they would require screening and training, but the numbers speak for themselves.
All of these schools are "gun free" zones which translate into a target rich environment for nut cases. Put trained men/women in defense positions and they'll move to softer targets.
Many of the big churches are doing this already. They've got a literal army of screened and trained volunteer security with concealed weapons.
You'll never get all the guns off the streets; better to be prepared when someone with nefarious intentions shows up.
