David Stern's taking a hard line with Gilbert Arenas for bringing unloaded firearms to the arena seems like a great step to curtail the misbehavior of NBA players. Stern must also dispense similarly harsh punishment for the routine occurrences of driving under the influence, reckless driving and domestic violence, which are arguably far more dangerous than Arenas's transgression.

While I'm hearing about Arenas's poor judgment during sports shows, I'm also seeing ads for TV programs, movies and video games that celebrate gun violence. His behavior is the result of a larger issue, but it is not being addressed that way.
