Media complicit in violence

In its Jan. 20 "Our View" commentary, the Press-Gazette advocates readdressing the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment.

That you, the media, would use the First Amendment as your ideal illustration for addressing specific citizens' rights protections is a disgrace, and you should be sued for libel.

I submit that the media's abuse of its First Amendment protection is a primary factor in the selection of a gun to solve a real or perceived personal problem.

To garner increased revenues, the big screen, TV, video games, etc. - all hiding behind the First Amendment's freedom of the press and speech clauses - have resorted to a plethora of the most disgustingly violent and gruesomely detailed, gun-oriented programs they can sneak past programming censors.

Need a few illustrations? How about the video games "Kindergarten Killers," "Bulletstorm," "Grand Theft Auto," "Mortal Kombat" or "Splatterhouse."

Prefer a movie film? Watch "Natural Born Killers" or "American Psycho." Just want to sit back and relax with music? View one of the uncountable number of music videos that treat life as a joke and murder as a perfectly normal way of life.

No, Green Bay Press-Gazette: Don't lecture us law-abiding gun owners about restructuring the Second Amendment. Man up. Clean up your own house.
