Browser plugin to erase names of mass shooters

browser-wars

From the ‘This is Possibly the Stupidest Thing I’ve Ever Heard’ Department comes a new plugin browser from the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. The Chrome plugin called Zero Minutes of Fame is designed to scrub the names and images of mass killers from any website that you look at online. This is their attempt to prevent copycat crimes except I see just one flaw in their master plan, they’re preaching to the choir. If you’re already a follower of the Brady Campaign you’re probably not someone who is getting ready to commit a shooting spree so what purpose would this really serve?

As I’ve said before we should know the killers’ names because to do so would garner them even more infamy in my opinion. Not to mention that the people who give them infamy are a tiny minority of society and they’re obviously not going to install this plugin.

Also, does the Brady Campaign consider Firefox users a lost cause?
