Re: You know what disturbs me? Movies and guns

I find the ubiquitous stupid movie posters that have the actors smiling with guns or toting guns totally disturbing. A gun can kill people. It is not funny or cool. This kind of exposure is desensitising and it is on bus stops and other places that people are just going about their lives.

Just idiotic.

Can we get past guns?

And guns are the weakest plot device available. What to do with a problem? Let's shoot someone dead or rob a bank or both. How can the hero triumph? Shoot the enemy. Right, so realistic and such useful advice.

Agree. I like it that there is a homoerotic subtext to a lot of this nonsense that can undermine the macho posing if it is pointed out - muscly men without shirts or in leather gear brandishing their weapons for all to see...oh my!
