The conservative Republican commentator in D.C. opines: "To the president's credit, in his remarks introducing his gun control initiative, he acknowledges that there may be cultural reasons that contribute to this sick, violent behavior. But he defines the cultural parameters of what he chooses to look at in such narrow terms that you have to question his seriousness or sincerity. The president said, 'Congress should fund research into the effects that violent video games have on young minds.' But why limit this discussion to video games? Has the president walked by a local movie theater complex recently to see what is playing? How about the local fare on television? Or what about the content of rap music? Can it possibly be that the disproportionate support that the Democratic Party gets from the entertainment industry — major sources of gratuitous violent media — gets them a pass from today's discussion?"
She ain't done just yet: "What about other major themes in American culture today that contribute to a sense of meaningless and lack of respect for the sacredness of life? Of course, I am talking about our indifference to the lives of unborn children, who are murdered in our country with impunity. Somehow those who want to intrude on gun ownership can live with the violence perpetrated on the unborn and have little interest in seeing its implications on violence in other areas of our society."
