Elmer Fudd, the iconic cartoon character in the Warner Bros Entertainment Reboot of Looney Tunes, will no longer carry a rifle in the new series. The cartoon character's primary weapon will be a scythe and will use booby traps and drop heavy objects such as anvils and bank safes in attacking the Bugs Bunny. The directors said they are not interested in featuring guns in iconic cartoon character series running on HBO Max.
"We're not doing guns," said the executive producer, Peter Browngardt, during an interview with the New York Times. "But we can do cartoony violence - TNT, the Acme stuff. All that was kind of grandfathered in."
The new series is made for the "new audience" who abhors bullying. However, guns are never used in bullying, especially by school-going children.
“We’re going through this wave of anti-bullying, ‘everyone needs to be friends’, ‘everyone needs to get along’,” he said.
The only reason for the change is to perpetuate the gun control agenda of the mainstream media. However, the removal of the rifle is just a virtue-signaling attempt by the hypocritical media because the series still features the characteristic violence of the character except without the use of a firearm.
The media house also continues to air many other films featuring guns. But disarming a cartoon character will somehow stop criminals on the streets from shooting people.
The media has rallied for the end of firearm display in films. Many celebrities support gun control despite accepting lucrative roles in films involving the use of large firearms. For example, Matt Damon and Will Smith strongly oppose the Second Amendment rights despite making millions from starring in violent movies.
None of them has ever turned down a role because it involved the use of a firearm. Many of their films also involve the depiction of criminals as the main characters. These criminals use firearms irresponsibly and gain a reputation from it.
"We root for the antihero the bad buy to kill somebody with much more explicit violence much more real than ever before," Tim Winter, president of the Parents Television Council, once said.
Maybe if the mainstream media showed responsible use of guns by law enforcement in saving lives, people protecting property, people hunting for food, or keeping their livestock safe, the impact of a firearm in movies would change. But the leftist media is obsessed with criminals, thus undermining the depiction of firearms in films.
However, censoring firearms would have no impact because criminals do not need encouragement to abuse a very important tool. Additionally, crime is a result of many dysfunctional behaviors encouraged by the hard left.
"Movies that glorify violence and guns would be far less influential if we had far more boys growing up knowing their dads," Thomas Krannawitter, a former professor once said.
Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is pushing universal background checks in our state, and if left unchecked, it will not be long until we see bills like this getting traction in Austin. Texas is embarrassingly ranked 29th for gun rights, and with the help of the political elites in Austin, we will surely rank among New York, California, and Illinois if left to their own devices. Please join our fight today, and help us restore Texas' place as the standard for the U.S.
