Hollywood, Guns, and Politics

Article on the interaction between Hollywood entertainment, its use of firearms, and the professionals in the industry who want to restrict second amendment rights.

“It never ceases to amaze me that hollywood hates guns yet glorifies them in movies when there’s money involved,” tweeted @DeeboCouch. “How about libs in #Hollywood agree to never make another film glorifying guns and the people that use them THEN calling for #Guncontrol,” wrote @courtface59.

This is the wrong way to proceed because both sides give up something too vital to them.

So where fictional gunplay is concerned, can Hollywood win?

Yes, and so can the American people.

The collaborative, win-win, version is that Hollywood continues to make movies and television programs that involve guns, and Hollywood stops trying to restrict run rights. Americans are free to use guns for their purposes. No one’s rights are restricted.

For people in organizations like Everytown, well, unfortunately, they are on the restriction side. If, on the other hand, they want to work with gun groups to promote safe gun handling, that’ll work.
