Obama Protects Hollywood

Propose this to Hollywood. That all movies include as part of their ratings, a carnage count. How many killed onscreen. And by what. That way you know if a film is rated R because a woman is butchered in a shower or whether it gets an R just for language. Likely they will invoke the First Amendment. Which is bizarre, if you think about it. Banning the one thing that would protect kids (guns) while preserving what will not (words). As if yelling "S(hucks)!!!" ever saved anybody no matter how often we've tried it.

President Obama and Vice President Biden gathered their children for a photo-op as Obama showily signed executive orders to prevent future mass shootings. It quickly became obvious that regulating the entertainment media wasn't part of his solution. Politics once more trumped policy.

Hollywood not only went unregulated, it went unmentioned. Biden announced that he had met with "229 groups from law enforcement agencies to public health officials to gun officials to gun advocacy groups to sportsmen and hunters and religious leaders."

He also met with Hollywood lobbyists and video game manufacturers, but was there anyone really expecting those meetings to amount...
