The latest episode of Hawaii Five-0, “Ke Ku ‘Ana,” is full of embarrassing falsehoods and other anti-gun propaganda.
Kyle Kane is a deranged father who blames gun culture for the mass shooting perpetrated by his son, so he holds a room full of hostages at gunpoint to send a message. Left unstated: Kyle’s son obtained his firearm through a straw purchase, a process that is already illegal and carries a sentence of up to ten years in prison and a $250,000 fine for the purchase alone even if the illegally purchased firearm were never used in another crime.
|I have been a fan of this show since it first appeared; I've believed the producers did a great job keeping the original theme and basic "traditions" of the original Jack Lord version.
BTW, Jack Lord, the original McGarrett, was a adamant antigun person.
IMHO, this episode was an utter mess of conflicting ideologies and sympathies. The antigun personality, the distraught father, was hardly sympathetic, IMHO. You cannot attach rational thought, therefor a reasonable ideology, to such a person.
Danny's mischaracterization of the 2A was vile, as he was in no way distraught. He was a talking head for the antigun movement, in a state with very severe gun laws.
Shame on the producers!!!!!!
