Great point!! and I might add, so do most "Hollyweird" hypocrites!! Michael Moores bodyguard was arrested with an unlicensed firearm at an airport, you just couldn't make it up!!! I would have a tad respect for these hypocrites if they would look to their own industry as playing a part in the issue!!!
Canda gets exactly the same media as the US it has a homicide by firearm rater per 100, 00 pop" of 0.51 (56th highest), the US has a rate of 2.97 (28th highest). The difference, the US has 88.8 guns per 100 people, Canada has 30.8 per 100 people.
Canada has exactly the same media, but significantly less murders. Media is not the primary factor, infact given the amount of media crossover between the US and Canada I'd be tempted to suggest it's not even a factor.
