Weinstein, an avid Obama supporter, cites lack of gun control as the real culprit behind the Colorado theater shooting and says it's time for Hollywood to examine its part in perpetuating real-life events.

Speaking to The Huffington Post, Weinstein called for a filmmaker summit in the wake of last week's theater shooting in Aurora, Colo., that left at least a dozen dead and 58 wounded.

"I think as filmmakers we should sit down -- the Marty Scorseses, the Quentin Tarantinos and hopefully all of us who deal in violence in movies -- and discuss our role in that," Weinstein said.

Oh Goodie.

Another millionaire Hollywood mogul at the top coming up with ways to screw little people like me trying to claw our way up.

Just another day in Obamaland. :(

How about a citizen’s lawsuit against Weinstein for producing and promoting violent materials?

Someone, somewhere, who has “status”, should do this despite arguments about the “First Amendment”. Just making a good legal indictment brief would be worth it to have printed and circulated around the country.

I’m waiting for Weinstein to give all his money to crime victims and to become a hermit, living in abject poverty as part of his repentence.

Hey Harvey: There is a big movie screen waiting for you in Hell, and all you will ever see, for eternity, is “Heidi”.
