America's darkest night -- in court yesterday while swat teams comb his apartment on one wall the feds found a poster Batman pain so.
We must ask the obvious question -- Hollywood carry at least some of the blame.
Only look at a couple of clips but parents be warned these clips contain some pretty violent -- the first clip comes directly from the movie playing during the massacre Batman the Dark Knight rises.
Pretty violent stuff Bob I mean these kids are watching it they're acting it out there almost immune to some of the violence to it now but in Hollywood -- a little bit you know -- The big big blockbuster -- -- that -- apparently seems to work and I have no hope that they gonna actually changed their view that these these are very violent.
They're full of a lot of bloodshed.
And kids -- -- -- and that goes along with video games that are up -- Bloodthirsty and somebody wants should take responsible for what they do it nobody does that make a profit and they gonna -- it.
That you pointed out earlier that you know you -- piece I read the same piece where Batman original that the TV series and it was almost a comedy was fine it.
It was just glad I was there are like in the united Batman and Robin costumes and everything of these -- I've never.
I never really been able to watch much violent stuff I just -- don't like it and comparison let me watch them scary movies and I was kids have been ninety and the packets are nervous.
Reflecting Greg looking at me right now very weird.
-- but I think that in some ways Hollywood is a little bit smarter than people on the gun lobby right -- like oh my gosh for so sorry it's terrible but.
Maybe there is to use the new the -- -- -- chicken and egg problem that you know that guns for a long time but does something like this make you wanna be like.
Those in Hollywood but I don't I don't watch it's I don't know.
-- think you need to be consistent right so if the First Amendment is going to be sacrosanct than the Second Amendment should be sacrifice says sacrosanct so freedom of speech.
Let them do their thing with these movies.
Let Americans have the right to bear arms and really if you don't know the real way to stop these movies -- any Batman movie what's that gonna do they can get it from die harder terminator any of the or the comic book of the TV show that's not gonna do anything if you really want to -- that.
As Dana's parents -- don't go see it don't buy the video games don't go to the movies it that you think that it's too violent.
Let let let's be clear I'm not suggesting or I don't think we're suggesting we banned any of this stuff may have just.
You don't -- revisit the rating system I mean a thirteen year old kid with a parent can give in to see -- it's pretty violent stuff.
Should we read that you change the way the access for kids.
Here's by my point and 1994 row Wanda there -- -- 8750000.
You needed a -- a tragedy every day for a 171.
Years to match that number.
There were no Quentin Tarantino movies there are no video games they're very little guns 500000 machetes did that the reporter to the Hutus because they were cheap.
The causes of this tragedy population density and -- it's a city.
It -- do you pop culture unites people.
You have people listen to hip hop who aren't black who are white.
Guns protect people from -- from humans darker elements in darker drives so I think that actually.
There's plenty of -- out -- that this stuff has been going on before and it's gonna go on forever Aaron it is well.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Call of duty work -- more warfare -- -- go.
Odds -- that's a tribute to American ingenuity when I look at that I see.
That is amazing to see that and I know it looks real but the fact it's I mean we know the difference.
So tell us -- crazy people don't it's a long way from -- better on a party that's my -- -- think we -- -- thank President Obama for building that.
-- right -- they yet but the reality is that the parents probably bought most of those those games right.
And maybe the -- the if -- here lives at home that they should not allow other accused of what that little brother was killed in that movie theater was not thirteen years old.
Now that means is somebody brought that child in there against the rules and nobody supported the rules -- nobody enforce the rules rather.
But if you -- your parents can you go.
No I don't I think it was.
And this was this maybe look at.
-- there was -- very quickly they're in these video games their shooters and the most popular ball by far which of -- -- -- call of duty.
First person shooter where you're actually the person in this year with the gun.
-- earn points for it but it -- you -- clips with extra you know exactly -- you know it's a game you know it's a game.
Here at -- I wanna go back to -- -- -- of the great shows of all time the Brady Bunch they identified this perfectly do you remember this the episode of Bobby Brady was its.
That sets over Jesse James.
It's -- parents came in and they brought a victim whose parent to parents had been killed by Jesse James to teach you.
The one thing you need to know you do not romanticize cool people you do not romanticize the anti hero that's the problem you sing it pop culture this but I wouldn't leak that the league that's.
That can -- -- heads up all those kids is results.
And he gonna want -- -- these that you can't self regulate prank parents as you pointed out -- you can do that as Greg said it's not real and anyone with a normal sanctioning brain.
Those are real -- -- that's mental illness there's no normal functioning we get a as a teenage body.
Got to leave it there coming -- got.
