Oh! Thank you liberals! You won’t be happy until we have a whole society that will flee in panic when some third world thug pulls out a pellet gun. ‘Run! It’s a weapon of mass destruction! No telling how many eyes he can put out with that thing!” And people wonder how massacres like the one in Norway can happen...
I'd suggest that since there are waaaaaay more firearms in the US now than there were in 1938 (and much finer and more accurate firearms they are, too!) that this is an example of libs believing that if they can't see something, it's not there, so they don't need be concerned that it will disturb their cocoon. (MMGW excluded!)
At the conclusion of the movie, ET, the agents no longer have handguns, but have walkie-talkies in the revised version of the film.
PC is rampant.
Wasn’t it Orwell who warned of ‘rewrites’ or has that been edited out, also?
Disney has no shame, and has been completely overrun with shameless, simpering faggots.
A town by where I live had their weekend annual celebration and some famous bankrobber had robbed a bank there so they do a re-enactment every year. All the kids that show up get a free toy.
The free toy is a toy gun.
Man, I love it here. It’s like I went back in time 50 years but still have internet access. :-D
What’s next...Elmer Fudd hunting wabbits with a camera?
Cartoons are produced and edited by corporate attornies nowadays. It comes down to Disney limiting their exposure to possible lawsuits put forth by every whack job out there looking for any lame excuse to sue for a paycheck. I would call it censorship by possible litigation, or PC CYA vanilla mode.
I grew up watching Coyote and Roadrunner cartoons, and I have as of yet used an anvil, TNT, or rocket powered rollerskates to off someone (although I have entertained the thought from time to time).
I remember Chuck Jones, producer of many of the classic Looney Tunes, coming to speak at my college campus years ago. The move towards PC editing of cartoons on television was already underway. Jones led off his appearance with an impassioned plea.
“Tell these heavy-handed idiots to stop raping my cartoons!”
Years ago my daughter had a VHS tape of several Dr. Seuss cartoons. One of them was Horton The Elephant which contained a scene where a fish, seeing Horton up on the top of his tree/sitting on his nest while crossing the ocean on a ship, pulls out a large frame revolver and blows his own head off (in a “well, now I’ve seen everything” sort of way).
I was really surprised by by own adverse reaction to it, moreso that the scene was still in the cartoon.
My oldest just attended an Eddie Eagle program this summer.
It works. Good, common sense handling of the topic at an age-appropriate level. Note that nowhere in what they teach says "Be terrified at the mere sight of a gun." Which, IMHO, is exactly what needs to happen. :-)
The same program used that advice on things like lighters and matches. Again, it works.
Too late. I caught some on one of the cartoon networks, and barely recognized them.
Fortunately, the originals are on DVD and are uncut. I've grabbed a couple of sets, with my favorites.
I’m glad I got to see them all when I was a kid. Even back then, they were pretty old(this was in the mid 80s). I looked forward to watching them during ‘Saturday morning cartoons’ every week. Back then, the only time you’d see cartoons on TV would be on Saturday mornings.
Early this year, the commie idiot mayor of London banned tickets for kids to next year’s Olympics for the biathlon because he deemed guns to be “violent”.
The UK who incidentally, have a team participating in the competition argued they do have programs showing the safety factor of the sport. Later, the mayor OK’d.
>>BTW I have a copy of the unedited version.<<
We bought a group of DVDs with all the the unedited versions, the “Censored 11” and Song of the South.
I did not know that...then again, I’ve always hated ET and haven’t watched it for the past 15 years.
Speaking of Snow Job, in the current 2011 comic version he’s far from a lib and uses guns more than he does his skis.
My cousin in high school watched the just-finished GI JOE cartoon series on Hub and it’s far from your typical lib slant. In it, Snow Job is depressed because he lost his buddy in war but managed to help one of the on-the-run Joe’s escape Cobra by being a soldier once again and remembering his training in the Army. Last time I checked it won’t be renewed this season and probably got caught by the lib censors in Hollywood..
Growing up in the New York City area the local tv stations used to edit the housekeeper out of the old Tom and Jerry cartoons. When we finally got cable tv, we were able to see the entire unedited cartoons on TBS.
