    Yes, nothing can be learned from films it is the guns fault that someone uses it for evil. Tarantino proves to be a total jackass.

    NEWTOWN, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) — Director Quentin Tarantino calls it “disrespectful” to the victims of the Newtown school shooting to link that tragedy to movie violence.

    In an interview with National Public Radio, the “Django Unchained” director, who got annoyed answering the question, said the true issue is about gun control and mental health rather than violence in movies.

    “I think it’s disrespectful to … the memory of the people who died to talk about movies,” Tarantino said. “I think it’s totally disrespectful to their memory.”

    I think it's hilarious how quick you guys are to attack the First Amendment in defense of the Second.

    Who in the f... said his speech should be restricted? WTF is wrong with you people? He can say whatever he wants that makes him sound like an asshole that is his right but I don't have to like it.

    Graphic in nature:

    Blaming violent movies for shootings is as much of an attack on the First Amendment as blaming guns for shootings is an attack on the Second.

    Well he DID get it half right.
    Do you know what it means when the national discussion starts turning from Gun Control to Mental Health and then Medications?

    It means we're turning the tide!

    It means we're gonna' win! :D

    Tarantino is still an asshole if he thinks violence in movies doesn't make an impression on young people.

    Are you saying that the shooter in Newtown didn't receive Mental Health treatment? Can you give me the cause and the reason of why he did what he did? We know he was addicted to violent video games but apparently that would be OK if he were merely drugged.

    BS. Movies are action they are how we teach children in schools. Hardly different then cyber school A gun is an inanimate object. Just like your car. It would be foolish to blame car ownership on your wreck when you were driving drunk.

    Oh, and BTW. Remember not long ago the lie that Obama was telling about a little seen video causing riot in Benghazi? Sure seem to me that a little seen video was used as an excuse for a person's behavior. But now all of a sudden movies have no effect. BS.
