Entertainment Industry Conditioning The Public Against Gun Ownership
" This point was recently made by Daily Caller writer Dan Griffin, who brought much-needed attention to the Entertainment Industries Council (EIC). EIC's mission is "Encouraging the entertainment industry to more effectively address and accurately depict major health and social issues." To further this effort, EIC provides those in the entertainment industry with a list of "Depiction Suggestions" for how firearmns should be portrayed on television and film.
To cite one of the 30 examples: "Consider reflecting the reality that homeowners often freeze up or tremble so badly when trying to use a gun in self-defense that they are unable to deploy it. Or show them as being too frozen in fear to even get a gun."
EIC has pushed gun control for more than 15 years, with their "Firearm Depiction Tip-Sheet" launched in 2000. ... The guide stresses, "All genres of entertainment can and do impart information to their audiences, which in turn may influence real-life decisions and beliefs...All types of programming -- from televisdion comedies to country music -- can find an angle. "

" American immorality and contempt for liberty lie at the root of most of the political economic problems our nation faces. They explain the fiscal problems we face, such as growing national debt and budget deficits at the federal, state and local levels of government. Our immorality and contempt for liberty are reflected most in our widespread belief that government ought to forcibly use one American to serve the purposes of another American....Congress has completely succumbed to the pressure to use one American to serve the purposes of another. As a result, spending grows. Today’s federal budget is about $3.8 trillion. At least two-thirds of it can be described as Congress taking the earnings of one American to give to another.
I personally believe in helping one’s fellow man in need. Doing so by reaching into one’s own pockets is laudable and praiseworthy. Doing so by reaching into another’s pockets is evil and worthy of condemnation. "

“SIDE EFFECTS” of the Iran Nuke Deal — From the producer of the Movie ‘Airplane’
"State efforts, such as Oklahoma's, create a glimmer of hope that one day Americans and their elected representatives will realize that the federal government is the creation of the states. A bit of rebellion by officials in other states will speed that process along." --- Dr. Walter E. Williams, professor of Economics at George Mason University
"Let’s agree that neither side trusts “the other side.” Let’s agree that neither side thinks much of the goals and motives of their political opponents. Let’s agree that the bigger the government, the more money and power it takes from its citizens. So where does this leave us? It takes us back to a founding principle of this country: limited government. By reducing the size of government, we limit the amount of damage “the other side” can do when in charge.
