You can’t beat a good Bugs Bunny cartoon.
For Mark Joseph Stern, it is apparently not enough to enact strict gun control legislation in an effort to curb violence by making sure criminals are the only armed Americans. In a recent Slate article, the writer lamented the ostensibly improper existence of exaggerated gun use in children’s entertainment of bygone eras.
He segued into his stated rant by criticizing the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision that banning violent video games would be akin to banning classic Looney Tunes cartoons.
Stern went on to lay out his case for removing Bugs Bunny and company from our society. He cited their “blasé approach to gun suicide” and “depictions of firearms as fun toys,” suggesting these themes have no place in today’s America.
