This was written in light of the Sandy Hook tragedy. I’m reblogging in light of the recent Oregon tragedy.
In response to the recent 14 December 2012 Sandy Hook tragedy, filmmakers have a right to make any movie they want. Moviegoers have a right to pay to see any movie they want. This discussion has to do with the issue of gun control as a solution to the phenomenon of assault-rifle mass killings, as well as the hypocrisy of filmmakers and actors in glorifying gun violence on the screen while issuing a Public Service Announcement (PSA) for stringent gun control aimed at American citizens. My view is that an assault rifle is a rifle to defend citizens against “assault.” This is guaranteed by the Second Amendment. Filmmakers and moviegoers have their rights. Citizens have a right to bear arms in defense against assault of their home or person. I have a followup to this post at [society, psychoses and weapons: what to do? pt. 2].
