On Sunday, the sixth season of AMC’s “Mad Men,” one of television’s most acclaimed and buzzed about TV series, debuts. And in the media blitz to promote the new season, the April 11th issue of Rolling Stone (yup, amazingly it’s still around, though less relevant than ever) features “Mad Men” star, Jon Hamm, on the cover, with a feature story inside. In the article, “Mad Men” creator and executive producer, Matthew Weiner (who also wrote for “The Sopranos”), whines that we don’t have more gun control, and tells us that this is somehow part of his show, since the show depicted the John F. Kennedy assassination in a previous season.
“We keep making the same mistakes,” he says. “For instance, you can’t pick a year between 1960 and 1980 and not see it filled with gun violence. And yet no one’s ever done sh*t about it. You’d think gun violence would be affected by the president being shot in the head. You’d think a Marine getting a rifle and shooting 45 people would have done something. But it didn’t.”
Absurd. “Gun violence” is the lingua franca of the gun control crowd. The rest of us know that there is only violence, and then there are guns, which most of us own and use legally and for which more laws won’t stop criminals and violence in which a gun happened to be involved. Was the Kennedy assassination really about gun control? Would gun control have stopped the assassination . . . or would better Secret Service protection?
I already told you about the appearance of Hamm (who needs to practice genital control and wear underwear) and his “Mad Men” co-star John Slattery in New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s pro-gun control “Demand a Plan” video, after the massacre as Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Now, Weiner is adds his two cents.
I don’t need Don Draper/Dick Whitman or the guy that created him to tell me what I should be allowed to own and use to defend myself.
They want to take your guns, while they live in upscale, ritzy areas away from danger and work in heavily guarded (with guns) Hollywood studios.
Well, at least there’s truth in advertising, since they really are “Mad Men.” Not to mention, hypocrites.
