Inside Amy Schumer’s Gun Shopping Channel Spoof. Funny or Die?

Amy Schumer is the second cousin once removed of Charles Schemer (well done auto-correct!) make that Schumer, the New York Senator who crusades against guns while celebrating the employment provided by Remington in Illion. In this sketch, the anti-gun rights comedienne does her shtick for universal background checks. Despite a caller’s concern about having “several violent felonies,” and another admitting he’s “a suspected terrorist on the no-fly list,” Ms. Schumer assures them  “You can absolutely get a gun… as long as you buy it on the internet or at a gun show.” Agitprop for sure, but funny? Maybe in Germany.

“In My Neighborhood All I Hear Is Gunshots” Well then…

“I wonder what the world can do,” the Youth Organizing to Save Our Streets’ rapper admits in the video above. “I have no idea. I have no clue.” And that, friends, is the problem. While gun control advocates sell the idea that civilian disarmament is the answer, no, it isn’t. So what is? Stop shooting, start living? That’s the dictionary definition of feel-good fatalism. Far be it for me, an OFWG, to tell urban youth how to stem the tide of gangland shootings (which account for the “gun violence” they decry). But gun control ain’t it. Someone ought to talk to these citizens about . . .

Excerpt from Armor of Light Anti-Gun Rights Documentary

I assume most of our readers will not deign to watch the Armor of Light documentary, which TTAG blogged four times. So here’s an excerpt courtesy of our friends at the Public Broadcasting Service. Did you know that Fox News and the NRA are not spiritual advisors? Well now you do. Bottom line: Reverend Schenck takes the Biblical command  “thou shalt not kill” literally and absolutely — despite evidence that the original text advised the faithful “thou shalt not murder.” In the gospel according to Schenck, thou shalt not use a firearm to defend innocent life. Instead, Reverend Schenck teaches church leaders and their flock to don the “armor of light.” Good luck with that.

Magnificent Seven Remake Trailer Drops

The Magnificent Seven trailer has hit the ‘net. Lead Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt have some mighty big boots to fill; the 1960’s original boasted actors Yul Brynner and and Steve McQueen at their coolest. For what it’s worth, Mr. Washington is a big pro-2A guy as is Mr. Pratt, who likes shooting coyotes because “they’re a**sholes and they’ll eat your dog.” So you’re good to go. You up for this?

Brady Campaign’s Answer to NRA’s Fairy Tales with Guns: Kiddie Snuff Film

Don McDougall writes [via AmmoLand.com]

Do kids watch Peter Pan get his head blown off and say, “Gee Daddy, I think we need to ban assault weapons and have stronger background checks”? No. This is kiddie porn with guns. It’s a snuff film. I have no idea what the people who made this film could be thinking. The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, the group that made it, says they did it to “one-up” the NRA. So let me get this straight . . .

States United To Prevent Gun Violence Produces Fake Action Movie to Sell Gun Control

States United to Prevent Gun Violence – a self-professed “grassroots network of 30 state affiliates working to make our communities and families safer” – was last seen setting up a fake gun store in New York City to sell their message of civilian disarmament. An illegal operation to which New York City authorities turned a blind eye. Their latest “caper” . . .

Batman’s Got A Gun!

My main squeeze and I saw Batman v Superman [not shown] last night. I wasn’t mortally offended by it. Suffice it to say, the Affleck-affected flick wasn’t quite as silly as the Batman comic lovingly deconstructed above. I wouldn’t recommend it. But I wouldn’t not recommend it either. SPOILER ALERT. The Caped Crusader uses plenty o’ guns, although only one of the Dark Knight’s guns is his own. Still, it’s a bit jarring to sit the Bat wielding a .45. In a good way. Yes?

UPDATE: Entertainment Industries Council Removes Anti-Gun “Depiction Suggestions” From Its Website

In a recent post — The Entertainment Industries Council: Hollywood’s Anti-Gun Star Chamber — the NRA revealed a low-profile Hollywood-based anti-gun rights org. “The EIC provides those in the entertainment industry with a list of ‘Depiction Suggestions’ for how firearms should be portrayed on television and in film. Of the more than 30 ‘suggestions,’ a handful target the criminal misuse of firearms. However, the vast majority seek to portray legitimate firearm ownership as destructive and dangerous.” You can read the “best” of those suggestions at the link above. Meanwhile, know this: the EIC has pulled the webpage. Somehow I don’t think that’s the end of it. You? [h/t DrVino] UPDATE: The EIC has re-posted the page!

Boosie Shows Off Platinum Money Gun [NSFW]

Underneath this YouTube video, benjibigbank informs us that “boosie been awy tooo long them sh*ts aint new.” I must admit that I was unfamiliar with Boosie or the money gun. But Google is my homie. “Torrance Hatch (born November 14, 1982), better known by his stage name Boosie Badazz, formerly Lil Boosie, is an American rapper from Baton Rouge, Louisiana,” Wikipedia reveals. “Hatch served time in the Louisiana State Penitentiary from 2009–14, having been sentenced to eight years after pleading guilty to drug charges.” So no gun charges! Oh wait . . .

The Entertainment Industries Council: Hollywood’s Anti-Gun Star Chamber

Mark Wahlberg (courtesy gunsandammo.com)

The NRA-ILA writes:

Does it ever seem like the entertainment industry needlessly interjects biased and politically-charged content into otherwise entertaining television programs or films? If so, rest assured you’re not unreasonably suspicious. Aside from the biases already attendant to the industry, the truth is that Hollywood is engaged in a concerted effort to propagandize unsuspecting Americans on certain political issues; and one of their chief causes is gun control . . .

DeSantis Gunhide Question of the Day: What’s Your Favorite FPS Gun Game?

I’m not sure I can watch an entire movie shot from the first-person perspective, no matter how cool the gun-related set-pieces. But I certainly understand why the filmmakers chose this option. You could even say it was inevitable, given the success of action movies like London Down, a video game masquerading as a movie. TTAG doesn’t cover FPS gun games, mainly because its editors are too busy working to play. But we know our audience is into them and may appreciate Hardcore Henry for what it is: someone else’s video game. So…what’s your favorite FPS shooter?
