When it comes to guns and violence, the nation’s top 5 most popular films right now are giving two thumbs WAY up. The Media Research Center breaks it down in a new video: 5 films, 65 violent scenes and 185 victims.
There was another theater massacre last weekend. Casualties ran to nearly 200. Victims were incinerated, bludgeoned, beaten, stabbed, pulled apart by cars (really) and, oh yes, gunned down by the dozen.
It all happened on the screen, to fictional characters. But when Hollywood stars begin demanding gun control for the rest of us, as many have in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting, it’s worth taking a hard look at the violence they portray and often glamorize.
But yeah, guns kill people, or something…
