Court Refuses Ky. School Shooting Case

The Supreme Court refused Tuesday to revive a lawsuit that blamed Hollywood for a school shooting in Kentucky.

The case questioned the responsibility of moviemakers and other entertainment companies for video games and other products that feature violence.

The court did not comment in rejecting an appeal filed by the families of three girls killed in 1997 at a high school near Paducah, Ky. They argued that entertainment companies were wrongly using the First Amendment free speech protection to shield themselves from lawsuits.

So why can't they apply this reasoning to the 2nd?
