I’m not even going to get in to the fact that an innocent child was gunned down (and yes that story is FUCKED UP and it was WRONG what happened), the 2nd Amendment, black vs white or any of that stuff. This was a fuckin’ great and powerful video…. UNTIL the “put down the guns” tagline at the end. Sorry but to me it looks like someone is “blaming” something. You had me till the screen cut to that. Personal responsibility! I’ve been bitching and moaning about personal responsibility on this damn site for YEARS. Fuckin’ A!! You tell em Sam! But it’s an awesome statement ruined by an anti-gun agenda/statement at the end. Many people over the internets have been saying that “you’re missing the point this isn’t an anti-gun video”. Yeah, well again you had me up until that tagline. If it’s not about putting down the gun why not end it with a tagline “Break the cycle”, “blame anyone but yourself”, “blame yourself” “be responsible” “don’t drink and drive” or some other catchy bullshit. Sorry but I’m just not buying there is “no anti-gun agenda to this video and I’m a moron for thinking there is an undertone to this”.
As stated on the Jesse Ventura Facebook page (which is where I checked the video out for the first time) old Jesse says: “I cannot believe I have to explain this but the video of Sam Jackson is not about stripping the second amendment it’s about taking responsibility for your actions and stopping violence. Sometimes words are not meant to be taken literally. Pay attention in English class kids.”. Well smartass I did pay attention in English class, but also paid attention in reading class as well and what I read at the end of that video said “PUT DOWN THE GUNS”. NOT “STOP THE VIOLENCE” or as I said “break the cycle” (which I think would have been a bad ass tagline to end that video and cause a shit ton less controversy but than again it wouldn’t have so many hits now would it?). So blow me you juiced up hack.
And please coming from someone who makes his money waving big guys around and cleaning up after Marvin gets shot in the face I find to be a little hypocritical.
