Women having sexual lives, in any context other than heterosexual marriage, threatens their sense of fairness: only men should be able to have sex, without the "responsibility" of getting 'knocked up'. Which is why they're against contraceptives, and abhor the idea, much less the reality, of abortion.
It has nothing to do with 'life'. It's all about control. Plus, they envy us because we have the ability to say "NO", and they....well, they live for that little tube between their legs, and can't imagine us being able to live without it.
Sad, really.

N.R.A. Proposes Sweeping Ban on Movies
Saying it was “high time to take action against the number one cause of violence in America,” the National Rifle Association issued a statement today urging a sweeping ban on movies.
Tracy Klugian, an official spokesperson for the gun-lobbying organization, said that the N.R.A. had taken this extraordinary step because it “could not stand idly by and watch movies tear apart the fabric of our civil society.”
To that end, Mr. Klugian said, the N.R.A. would use money from its PAC, the N.R.A. Political Victory Fund, to support politicians who favored a ban on filmed entertainment.
In the hours after the N.R.A.’s announcement, politicians on both sides of the aisle were quick to applaud the group for identifying what it called “a long overdue need for movie control.”
“It is time for us to stop the madness,” said Speaker of the House John Boehner.“As a first step, I am proposing legislation that would impose a two-year waiting period and background check before one is allowed to see a Hollywood release.”
Minutes later, the White House said that the Speaker’s proposal was “a good first step, but does not go far enough,” arguing that Congress had to “take a hard look at whether superhero costumes and masks should continue to be legal.”
All in all, the N.R.A.’s Klugian said he was “cautiously optimistic” that the organization’s call for new legislation would be heeded “because our message finally seems to be getting through: Guns don’t kill people. Movies kill people.”

not a true story. just one to make certain people look the fools they are.
(I'm posting this again because I'm not sure it posted the first time and I have to go to work.)

It's not the guns. It's movies that glorify killing. It's movies that stylize killing for "artistic" purposes. It's sick and disturbing movies that depict gruesome killings as entertainment.

Cowboy movies and war movies depict history and reality. That's not what we're talking about.

The kind of movies young people see today, we couldn't have even imagined. The Dark Knight character was elevated to hero status. "Saw" was considered a cool movie. Neither movie was focused around guns.

Even if most children can process these movies without being outwardly affected by them, they are still becoming less sensitized by them. But for some, it intensifies the dark clouds already forming in their minds and they reenact the unemotional killings they see on the big screen.

It's the culture of bullying, child suicides and children killing children without even needing a gun.

Even if guns were banned, the shooters in the last three tragedies would have gotten their hands on a weapon somehow.

It's not about how they did it. But why they did it.

The Secret History of Guns

In the 1920s and ’30s, the NRA was at the forefront of legislative efforts to enact gun control. The organization’s president at the time was Karl T. Frederick, a Princeton- and Harvard-educated lawyer known as “the best shot in America”—a title he earned by winning three gold medals in pistol-shooting at the 1920 Summer Olympic Games. As a special consultant to the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws, Frederick helped draft the Uniform Firearms Act, a model of state-level gun-control legislation.(Since the turn of the century, lawyers and public officials had increasingly sought to standardize the patchwork of state laws. The new measure imposed more order—and, in most cases, far more restrictions.)

Frederick’s model law had three basic elements. The first required that no one carry a concealed handgun in public without a permit from the local police. A permit would be granted only to a “suitable” person with a “proper reason for carrying” a firearm. Second, the law required gun dealers to report to law enforcement every sale of a handgun, in essence creating a registry of small arms. Finally, the law imposed a two-day waiting period on handgun sales.

The NRA today condemns every one of these provisions as a burdensome and ineffective infringement on the right to bear arms. Frederick, however, said in 1934 that he did “not believe in the general promiscuous toting of guns. I think it should be sharply restricted and only under licenses.” The NRA’s executive vice president at the time, Milton A. Reckord, told a congressional committee that his organization was “absolutely favorable to reasonable legislation.” According to Frederick, the NRA “sponsored” the Uniform Firearms Act and promoted it nationwide. Highlighting the political strength of the NRA even back then, a 1932 Virginia Law Review article reported that laws requiring a license to carry a concealed weapon were already “in effect in practically every jurisdiction.”

When Congress was considering the first significant federal gun law of the 20th century—the National Firearms Act of 1934, which imposed a steep tax and registration requirements on “gangster guns” like machine guns and sawed-off shotguns—the NRA endorsed the law. Karl Frederick and the NRA did not blindly support gun control; indeed, they successfully pushed to have similar prohibitive taxes on handguns stripped from the final bill, arguing that people needed such weapons to protect their homes. Yet the organization stood firmly behind what Frederick called “reasonable, sensible, and fair legislation.”

One thing conspicuously missing from Frederick’s comments about gun control was the Second Amendment. When asked during his testimony on the National Firearms Act whether the proposed law violated “any constitutional provision,” he responded,“I have not given it any study from that point of view.” In other words, the president of the NRA hadn’t even considered whether the most far-reaching federal gun-control legislation in history conflicted with the Second Amendment. Preserving the ability of law-abiding people to have guns, Frederick would write elsewhere,“lies in an enlightened public sentiment and in intelligent legislative action. It is not to be found in the Constitution.”

More people were murdered by deadly guns in Newtown Conn. in 5 minutes than were murdered by deadly guns in an entire year in England. America needs to ban firearms so the 20 innocent children in Sandy Hook will not have died in vain.
Will Hollywierd stop producing how to movies that feature violence? Will politicans stop championing the rights of the insane to wander our streets and re-open institutions? Because right now it is extremely difficult to enact an involuntary committment until AFTER a crime? What about violent video games that train the crazies? And the media frenzy that gives future mass murderers the incentive to become "famous?"

"For hours on end, alone in his windowless basement den, Adam Lanza studied photos of guns and obliterated virtual victims in violent video games — until the virtual became a reality.

The unhinged Sandy Hook Elementary School gunman was enthralled by blood-splattering, shoot-’em-up electronic games, which he played in the basement of his mother’s spacious $1.6 million home in Newtown, Conn., according to a person familiar with the layout.

Lanza, 20, especially liked “Call of Duty”— a wartime role-playing game where participants use high-powered assault rifles, machine guns and other weapons to slaughter scores of people, according to a published report."

they love movie guns....

Actor, NRA Board member and avid gun collector Tom Selleck has donated seven rifles and revolvers used in his films to the NRA National Firearms Museum.

Several of Mr. Selleck's guns have been displayed in the museum, most notably one of the Shiloh Sharps rifles used in the blockbuster movie Quigley Down Under. The gun was featured in "Real Guns of Reel Heroes," one of the museum's most popular exhibits ever.

You are 100% correct. Ironically, liberal Hollywierd promotes and enriches itself on violence while preaching against gun ownership. Usually while personally armed and/or with high priced armed security guards protecting themselves, their families and their homes 24/7.

Can't they think that far ahead? I really don't understand their scope of vision.
