There’s no doubt in my mind that the producers of Lifetime’s Dance Moms encouraged or at the very least enabled a dance number featuring a leotard of pre-pubescent prancers leaping around with golden guns. Last night’s “Children with Guns” piece was unnecessary, inflammatory and vulgar. Which created exactly the kind of “must see” (i.e. train wreck) TV that makes the reality genre so incredibly profitable. The fact that there hasn’t been a chorus of WTFs coming from the usual gun control advocates (yet) tells you how far we’ve come on the gun rights issue in recent years. Or does it? The complete lack of muzzle control or trigger discipline set the cause back by a good ten years. Either that or reality TV osmosis has made me a drama queen. Again.
