Lib Wants Looney Toons Banned Because of "Gun Violence"

As if banning these old cartoons will do anything to stop anyone from acting on their anger against others.

Erasing guns or anything that resembles guns or other weapons from history will not make them cease to exist. They’re trying to brainwash kids to be terrified of guns, to believe that they’re evil. And editing guns out of old cartoons is just one more step toward indoctrinating the next generation that guns are only to exist in the hands of government agents and no one else. Writing for Slate, Mark Joseph Stern opined:

When California tried to ban the sale of violent video games to minors, the Supreme Court mocked its efforts, noting that old Looney Tunes cartoons provoked the same tendency toward violence in children as a Grand Theft Auto–style bloodbath. But just how violent were Looney Tunes? A video compiled by Sam Henderson reminds us that the antics of Bugs Bunny and co. were a lot more brutal than you remember.

And then he links to this video compilation of “gun suicides” in cartoons:
 

Stern continues:

As Retro Junk notes points out, many of these so-called “suicide gags” have long been edited out of TV reruns, though some are still included on DVD editions. To modern sensibilities, of course, the gun violence is especially startling—particularly the blasé approach to gun suicide, a rampant problem across the United States. The cartoons’ depictions of firearms as fun toys to be deployed for petty revenge also comes across uncomfortably now, during our years-long epidemic of school shootings… But no kids’ show today would ever treat firearms or gun deaths so lightly, with such zany exuberance, as Looney Tunes once did. That jaunty disregard of the consequences of violence is part of what made the show so bizarrely delightful. In a post-Newtown world, however, what was once strangely funny now registers as appallingly macabre.

Liberals support the U.S. government sending massive amounts of heavy weaponry and money to terrorists in the Middle East while decrying “gun violence” in old cartoons. They are a parody of themselves.

My exact thought.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

The only Looney Tunes I've seen in the past 6 years are in the District of Corruption. :woohoo:

I was under the assumption that they already banned them. At least here in the Northwest,  I don't see any cartoons on TV except for, using my own 12 year olds words "crap cartoons".   Cartoons with flat cheaply drawn one-dimensional animation, like  Phineas and Ferb, South Park, SpongeBob, Family Guy, Adventure Time, Doraemon, Amazing World of Gumball, Uncle Grandpa,  and a bunch of other stupid cartoons for stupid minds.

My 12-year old, bless his heart, "hates" them and says so every time he see one advertised.   Thankfully I have many of the old Warner Brothers cartoons on DVD packaged sets that he enjoys watching, so much so that he can quote them just as you and I can who grew up with them. "Would you like to shoot me now or wait till  you get home".  He also enjoys the 4-seasons of Flintstones I have, and Scooby Doo.

Too bad he will never know the pleasure of Saturday morning cartoons when we never slept in at the risk of missing the Bugs Bunny Road Runner Hour, Scooby Doo, the Jetsons, Fantastic Four, and on and on and on........

Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

In all fairness South Park and Family Guy is for adults.. But you are right most of today's cartoons are crap.
GOP House members came to Paul Ryan to be Speaker. He didn't come to them. And he was everybody's conservative darling back in 2012. So unless 1 of the remaining 240 wants to step up & do a better job in budgeting & negotiations & herding the party cats, then everybody please STFU. You go to battle with the army you have, not the one you want but don't have.
