Who's Responsible for the Culture of Violence?

So Obama is ordering Biden to head up a gun control task force.

Here's what strikes me...
White House officials say the eventual package of proposals will most likely include new restrictions on guns, particularly assault weapons, and high-capacity magazines. But they say it will also probably involve measures that touch on mental health initiatives and, as Obama noted Wednesday, a close look “at a culture that, all too often, glorifies guns and violence.”
So they're going to go after your minds and the First Amendment.

Won't they ever, for just a second, consider the possibility that the Presidency, Pentagon, and State Department have contributed mightily to a "culture that, all too often, glorifies guns and violence" -- and that they, far more than Hollywood depictions of violence, show reckless disregard for innocent life?
