‘That’s completely different than the pervasiveness of assault weapons in homes.

From column by Kathleen Parker in today’s Washington Post:

“We put ourselves in Baldwin’s shoes and try to imagine what he felt upon realizing what had happened. Seeing him so distraught and plainly grieving in photos snapped after the shooting should move anyone to empathy and pause our nation’s default cynicism. But not in our spiritually hollowed-out world, where meanness is a virtue and hatred is the coin of the realm.”

Just as I said, innuendo and leaving yourself room to backtrack. "So lefty darling (and notorious bully) shoots and kills someone on a movie set."

Of course you didn't really mean he was to blame for shooting and killing someone, but you had to stick that in then act all innocent that you were really talking about the industry. Same old shtick 

As far as the industry goes, yes there is excessive violence because it sells. That was true before the shooting, too.

it's a horrible accident and it baffles the mind that this could happen on a movie set
i'm sure there are safety protocols to follow...

Note k's rhetorical tactic of attacking people for not jumping to conclusions or speculating rampantly tied to some innuendo implying Baldwin is to blame somehow because he is a lefty but leaving plenty of room to backtrack by not stating clearly what he thinks. 
But the State government is democratic, correct? So there's sure to be a coverup.

So when a child picks up a gun and plays with it and shoots someone it is immediately a big deal.

No big deal when a lefty actor plays with a gun and shoots someone, right ?

I would have expected to see some comments about banning guns in movies and TV shows.

Nope.  Crickets.

If guns were not allowed in movies and TV, we would not have had this shooting death.  And that could also spill over into real life when gun violence is no longer glorified in media productions.

Sad how an industry and media that exploits guns and violence for profit denounces it in real life and ignores it altogether when it happens in house ...

Won't you please come to Chicago ...



I like these posts that get lots of facts wrong, assume flawed correlations, insult everyone here, then move on to blanket pronouncements and nonsensical deductions. Only thing missing is a lamentation about being alone here and constantly under attack/threat of expulsion etc. 
 
What did I get wrong in my remarks ?

And yes, usually there are remarks jumping to conclusions posted before the latest bodies are even cold.  Not this time.

There are extenuating circumstances yet to be addressed but that does not change the fact that someone is dead.  Baldwin assumed the gun was cold and did what he was supposed to do, apparently.  Someone yet to be determined failed at their job.  But the point about how the entertainment biz which is basically a lefty operation that thrives on the glorification of violence is noticeably silent.

he was flung about like a rag doll and verbally assaulted with a string of horrifying racial slurs and pronouns (it's a wonder he's not in the hospital)

intentionally initiating harm against another sentient life form is never the answer, but i digress

Tell this to an extra-terrestrial being, it wouldn't believe you... and implicitly think, those humans are a perverted species, responsible for their own demise.



Perhaps no other issue demonstrates the entrenched, willful stupidity of American society so loudly.
