Hollywood Working With Anti-Gun Orgs, Biden Administration to Push for New Gun Control Laws

36

Last week, the Biden administration promised gun control groups that it will soon roll out a massive push for limits on firearm purchases and other measures. President Biden reiterated that promise on Sunday. And the television networks aren’t waiting to lay the groundwork for this effort.

CBS is in a full-court press for gun control on its evening entertainment television shows. The bad guys are always white supremacists who use machine guns — supposedly AR-15s — to commit mass public shootings. Criminals in Mexico supposedly get machine guns from the United States. A father’s desire to protect his family only leads to tragedy when his daughter gets into the gun safe and uses the weapon in a mass public shooting. And guns in the home pose a danger for children. Gun registration is necessary for solving crime.

NBC isn’t to be left out, showing a woman who tried but failed to use a gun to protect herself. Instead, her gun was taken from her and used to kill a police officer. The lesson is that owning a gun will only bring you grief.

And that’s just in the first six weeks of the year. Every show gives an inaccurate impression about firearms, thereby helping in this push for gun restrictions. It’s as though these shows were written by Michael Bloomberg’s gun control organizations.

Indeed, the networks are working with these groups. A member of Moms Demand Action recently wrote a Washington Post op-ed headlined: “Guns are white supremacy’s deadliest weapon. We must disarm hate.” So it isn’t too surprising that show after show portrays neo-Nazis using machine guns to commit mass public shootings. CBS’s “SWAT,” “FBI: Most Wanted,” “FBI,” and” Bull” all push this theme. They often refer explicitly to these guns as AR-15s. Others, such as “Magnum PI” and “NCIS LA,” constantly show criminals using machine guns.

  1. “They don’t call it programming for nothing!”
    Good news is nobody watches TV save for the “Trump is mean” Boomers.
    Women are too busy tweeting and everyone else is playing games.

  2. Say what you want about Biden but ar least he declared Texas a disaster and sent aid to bail us out. I’m changing my mind about him. We’ve been suffering because our power grid has been down and Biden came through for us.

    • Your power was out solely because your solar collecters and windmills stopped because they don’t work in the cold, just like your governor told you.

        • Colder places use models designed specifically for such environments. They also have work crews who are prepared to work in cold weather conditions and plans made to deal with the problem.

    • And then he’ll require you invest more in solar and windmills and get hosed even more the next time global warming decides to take a holliday. May your chains rest lightly upon you.

    • “….We’ve been suffering…”

      Not to be a 2zzhat jerk but, you bear some responsibility for your own well being. Never count on someone else(Gov) to get to you and pull you out of a situation. I know you pay taxes and all but reality is what it is. Be prepared for worst case scenarios. One mantra from the prepared community is Three is two, two is one, and one is none. Have three sources of food and water, three sources of heat (That includes a plan to get to where the heat/food/water is)
      Heck, throw up a tent in your biggest room and live out of that. Heated with portable sources such as candles, small propane, ect Yes, it sucks but better than freezing while you wait for the Gov to do anything.

      Ok, if I’m wrong or out of line, let me know. Sorry if anyone is offended.

      • That’s great advice, I couldn’t sgree more.

        Also, don’t apologize when no apology is needed, especially preemptively. If its worth apologizing for, why say it?

        Apologies should be reserved for when you mean it. Otherwise, your word won’t mean jack.

        • Interestingly enough my post was waiting on moderation. I had to get oil changed in my vehicle so left before it cleared. It’s interesting because it was my first time being moderated after…I think..three years of posting.

          My intent was to not sound harsh or judgmental in replying to someone who might be in the middle of the Texas situation, but at some point you have to decide to do something about a issue and not wait on someone to come.

          No one is coming.

    • “Say what you want about Biden but ar least he declared Texas a disaster and sent aid to bail us out. I’m changing my mind about him.

      Say what I want? Here goes! Round Table, You need your head examined.

    • ERCOT had a plan to meet energy demands by temporarily redlining gas power production. The DoE under Biden ordered them to stop on the grounds that it would exceed their acceptable emissions levels. The Biden administration is DIRECTLY responsible for the power grid shortfall this past week.

      They care more about three days of emission overages than they do about the entirety of Texas. This administration is NOT your friend.

    • What exactly did Biden do for y’all?
      Nothing
      Same thing y’all did for yourselves.
      Now start preparing. It’s a basic responsibility

  3. The leftists false mentally challenged narrative, the truth is more blacks kill with guns than whites than any other weapon used.. a majority of crime is committed by black males and there are less black.males than whites.. it’s not a gun problem, it’s a social problem.. fatherless homes, shitty parenting, being raised to be disrespectful punks and mooching of welfare. all fact.

    • Man… I am shocked. Shocked, I say, that there are white supremacists airing their garbage on TTAG while the mods do nothing about it. We are the company we keep, and there is a reason this site is considered the urinal of all gun sites.

      • Fatherlessness and broken families breed crime. Always have, always will, regardless of race.

        The truth isn’t racist. It just is. Now maybe you don’t like the truth, but that doesn’t change reality.

  4. When television is good, nothing — not the theater, not the magazines or newspapers — nothing is better. But when television is bad, nothing is worse. I invite each of you to sit down in front of your television set when your station goes on the air and stay there for a day without a book, without a magazine, without a newspaper, without a profit and loss sheet or a rating book to distract you. Keep your eyes glued to that set until the station signs off. I can assure you that what you will observe is a vast wasteland. ~ Newton N. Minow 05-09-61

    Television and its tumors the internet and social media have all evolved into nothing more than entertainment for sock puppets. Unfortunately for America, sock puppets are allowed to vote.

    • I have such a backlog of DVDs and downloads, I could ignore Free-To-Air and Cable TV for a decade. In fact, my FTA viewing is single-digit hours per YEAR!

  5. The Hollyweird.cabal would be smart if they realized where their bread was buttered. I went to exactly one movie last year. Wonder Gal on Christmas Day. Our local Cineplex is closed presumably forever. It seems the only crap they make that anyone watched is violent. F##k’em!

    • Recently read an article ranking all the movies released last year. They were all ranked Worst as a group. Hollyweird Is Dead. Nothing new or even interesting has come out of there in the last 5 years. Just remakes of old movies with either females or ethnic characters inserted in roles to appease the SJW and PC Nazi’s.

  6. A little late to the game IMHO. How many Hollywood movies center around a someone taking the law into their own hands and using a firearm to defeat the bad guys and saving the day? Now how many Hollywood movies center around someone bunkering down, calling 911 and waiting for police to arrive?

    • You might see more “Socialist-Realism” about the triumph of the common man who truly believes in the party and is completely selfless in their actions. We will see “The New Soviet Man 2.0”.

  7. So Hollyweird will disavow firearms as props in their storylines from here forward? That’s the only way to show true commitment.

    • Agreed. I believe in free speech, and Hollywood is free to say what they like. But I also think that the industry that gave us the lobby scene in The Matrix shouldn’t be telling us what we should be using for fun and self-defense.

      I’m not saying that everything we see in the movies should be legal (especially horror movies). Slashing slutty teenagers while wearing a hockey mask is not protected by the Second Amendment.
