Hollywood: Hey, this Obamacare thing is going to be pretty costly and complicated for us

Andrew M. Cuomo and hailed by Democratic leaders has a surprising critic: Hollywood. Officials in the movie and television industry say the new laws could prevent them from using the lifelike assault weapons and high-capacity magazines that they have employed in shows like Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and films like The Dark Knight Rises. Twenty-seven film and television projects, including programs like Blue Bloods and Person of Interest, are now in production in New York State using assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, according to the Motion Picture Association of America. Industry workers say that they need to use real weapons for verisimilitude, that it would be impractical to try to manufacture fake weapons that could fire blanks, and that the entertainment industry should not be penalized accidentally by a law intended as a response to mass shootings. Well, we certainly wouldnt want any law-abiding citizens with no intent to kill anyone penalized accidentally by a law intended as a response to mass shootings. So, in New York, you have the ludicrous display of the industry responsible for more gun porn than the entire NRA, whose big players happily smear the rest of the countrys law-abiding gun owners as murderers, asking for an exception to the rule many of them lobbied for so they can continue to make gun porn. I expect to see the same on Obamacare.
