Hollywood, TV to blame for gun violence


No matter what President Obama and Congress do about guns, the level of violence in our society will not decrease unless “we the people” stop spending our money on movies, TV shows and computer games that glorify violence and cheapen life. We have to stop saying “someone should do something,” and let Hollywood and the TV advertisers know we are not going to spend our money on violent programming.
