Joe Hill and Ron Marz continue their rants against 2nd Amendment
@joe_hill I think unfortunately the money of the gun lobby has decided that, not America.

Yet not a word from them about the anti-Zimmerman protestors who assaulted Hispanic pedestrians in the streets, the threatening text messages sent to a Florida woman that were intended for Zimmerman, or even an anti-Zimmerman protestor who called for shooting "racist pigs". Nor do they seem to care that the protests themselves drew very small crowds.
And while we're speaking about Hill, he also wrote the following about Rolling Stone's cover featuring Dzhokhar Tsarnaev that's outraged many Americans, especially Bostonians:
The controversy over Rolling Stone's cover is dumb. No one would've blinked if TIME stuck the exact same photo on their cover.

I think some people would blink if they suspected Time was coming within even miles of sensationalizing the subject, and besides, Tsarnaev did not deserve cover treatment as though he were a rock star. Instead of writing about the victims and police who tracked down that repugnant filth, they just had to give major focus to a savage. Too many mainstream news rags have been giving far more coverage to criminals than to the victims of crimes, and are causing serious harm and bias that way. Hill doesn't seem to have anything to say about the Rolling Stone editor who made a nasty tweet and had to apologize for it, nor does he seem to have noticed that quite a few celebs panned the cover as well, including Chris Evans, who played Captain America at the movies. If Rolling Stone collapses because of this atrocity, they'll deserve it.
