    Food for thought

    The movie and gaming industry worldwide makes billions off of guns and gun violence. Yet it is mainly full of actors and such that are obsessed with gun control. Hypocrites?

    Do we fuel their agenda by watching these movies and buying video games?

    I will call them ignorant not stupid people, (general public that pay to see these TV shows movies etc) because they just don't know due to poor subject knowledge and probably never being around firearms used sensibly.
    They see guns in movies and think pretty much that's what they are about. Killing.
    Not a tool, just pieces of metal wielding violence.
    Every firearm is full auto and no one should own them.

    I love a good movie and westerns and war movies are my favorites especially when effort is made regarding authenticity.

    Next time you watch a movie you enjoy Google a few actors, directors and producers and their stance on gun control. You may be surprised.

    Do they deserve your hard earned money?

    Good points made @R93. Same sort of thing comes to mind for the politicians of western society who are big on gun-control and restricting civilian gun ownership - Yet are happy to have armed private security for their own precious protection. Often their security is protecting them with the very same firearms they want to ban - Hypocrites!

    There are some well know people in the entertainment industry that are pro firearms but they are few and far between.
    If they speak out too much the libtard snowflakes can ruin their careers.

    Unless you're Chris Pratt

    Sure didn't seem to hurt his career over the last 110 years

    Attitudes to guns and wars come and go. Don't get too hung up the current climate and what is PC or trendy at the moment.

    Or on the other hand:

    Practical shooting is the fastest growing shooting sport in Norway. This is mainly to do with the ability to use close to the actual firearms that the people have "used" in video games.

    I understand that for a great many people, their opinion of Firearms comes from seeing every shot kill a bad guy and every burst of FA resulting in a oily explosion.

    Mark Wahlberg is a Felon and cant legally own a gun, yet he uses them all the time in his movies.


    Apparently you can be a criminal and use guns in movies but cant touch them off a movie set.

    Just making sure Iím reading that right...you have a problem with an actor using toys in movies for entertainment because he was a naughty boy when he was young?

    He beat up a Vietnamese man for race reasons and did a lot of car thieving. Hardly petty crime

    In the mid 80s, lieterally over 30 years ago. Be fair to say he’s turned his life around to the positive since then, and still not sure why there’s a problem with him using fake guns in movies?
