Samuel L Jackson and David Letterman are apparently not part of the Left-Wing group think. Jackson makes his feelings clear
Samuel L. Jackson, one of the stars of the new Quentin Tarantino-directed, Harvey Weinstein-produced Django Unchained, is speaking out against those who would restrict access to firearms or scale back violence in films in reaction to the massacre in Sandy Hook. Said Jackson:
“I don’t think it’s about more gun control. I grew up in the South with guns everywhere and we never shot anyone. This [shooting] is about people who aren’t taught the value of life … I don’t think movies or video games have anything to do with it.”
Jackson added, “We need to stop deranged people from getting access to guns.”
Yet Letterman addressed the shooting with a candor and perspective that likely caught most viewers off guard.
“Do you think about the parents and their friends and getting that message from the school and finding out that their lives are irrevocably broken, ruined? You think about your own kid. I take him to school every now and then. Are we supposed to be worried about dropping our kids off at school now?” ….
“Believe me, I’m not dumb enough to think that this is a problem of guns,” Letterman said. “Before there were guns, people were killing one another. And you can’t just say that its mental health or emotional problems because people with all manner of problems don’t necessarily kill each other.”
He also shared a statistic that likely shocked his studio audience, one that muddies the debate about gun control even further.
“Since 1994, there have been 70 episodes of school shootings, [all] after the Brady Bill had passed [in 1993]. Good lord, does that surprise you?” he asked.
Imagine that, Liberals telling the truth about guns and gun control. I wonder if these two will feel the wrath of their Hollywood brethren for daring to question Liberal ideology?
