Pop quiz — what do the biggest news story of the day, and the biggest shows have in common?
Answer: Violence! Lots and lots of violence.
We live in a world where the actor famous for his role as Jason Bourne waxes eloquently about his fond wish that the US government would just confiscate all the guns. So long as they leave the Hollywood Prop guns.
Those are important. You can’t make a movie without them.
Hollywood actor Matt Damon used a press conference in Australia over the Fourth of July weekend to discuss his desire for a massive confiscation of U.S. guns.
“You guys did it here in one fell swoop [in 1996] and I wish that could happen in my country, but it’s such a personal issue for people that we cannot talk about it sensibly,” Mr. Damon said during a promotional engagement in Sydney for the movie “Jason Bourne.”
The action star went on to say people get too “emotional” when it comes to “not selling AK47s to people on terror watchlists.”
And he said that, without even a hint of irony noted.
What was the biggest show on cable? The Walking Dead. (We know — some of you are just dying to see what happens next.)
Not only is the gore-o-meter completely off the chart in TWD, the storylines are about as powerful an argument for the Second-Amendment as you will find anywhere on TV.
The show has Guns. Lots of them.
And if anyone doesn’t have them, they’re sitting ducks for some other bigger, more powerful group that swaggers up and starts barking orders.
Guns are a big deal, whether the actors like them or not.
What about the Blockbuster movie of the year?
Lupita Nyong’o, who plays the hero’s love interest, advocated for gun control in the wake of the Orlando shooting, notes Newsbusters. She posted a long Instagram message which read, “most importantly, we simply need to put down the guns!”
You first, Hollywood. Perhaps if you didn’t inspire disaffected, mentally unstable teens to wage mass murder in your video games and films, then school shootings would stop.
Black Panther is “off-the-charts violent,” reports Newsbusters: “373 instances of violence within the 2-hour runtime. 163 of those were instances of gun violence. This included the standard rifle and pistol attacks, and the use of high-tech Wakandian weapons, as well.” Wakandia is the fictional setting of the film.
Another 210 violent acts involved punches, kicks, choke holds, and attacks with swords. Characters were stabbed and/or sliced by spears and knives, and (Spoiler alert) much of the climax of the movie involved a no-holds-barred fistfight between the Black Panther and his rival, Killmonger.
The climax also included a sprawling battle scene where numerous people were shot, stabbed, blown up, and also stampeded by armor-wearing rhinos. Dead bodies were shown littering the battlefield in several instances, and while it’s implied there were heavy casualties throughout the movie, the audience was shown around 20 of them.
The next time a self-righteous actor like Marvel’s The Hulk star Mark Ruffalo lectures Americans about gun violence, just remember that Hollywood needs to “put down the hypocrisy,” to paraphrase Lupita Nyong’o and leave the Second Amendment alone.

We’ve all wondered for a long time, but it looks like medical science has finally determined the problem.
It’s spreading like a plague. For some reason, Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds.
Trump Derangement — and Romney Derangement before that — and Bush Derangement before that are only the tip of the iceberg.
What is driving them so berzerk?
Looks like we’ve found an answer:
A liberal walks into the hospital and asks for an X-ray of its skull. Doctors confirmed what we already feared. Here’s the sad diagnosis…
That’s the ladies’ version. You can get it here.
Don’t worry. There’s one for the guys, too.
You can get the guy’s version here.
