New study: Hollywood to blame for increased gun sales, gun violence in PG-13 films which worse than R-rated movies

“…with a body count that reaches almost 500 by the film’s end, this isn’t exactly one for the kiddies.” – THE EXPENDABLES 3

“Using guns, grenades, tanks, swords and even their bare hands, the Expendables murder literally wave after wave of enemies in the last thirty minutes of the movie’s run time. Some may argue that the more extreme, close-up violence tends to happen off camera, but would the MPAA have been so forgiving in their rating if extreme sex had been depicted off-screen instead?”

Their list touches on horror films, the sexual references of Austin Powers, the disturbing nature of Heath Ledger’s Joker in Dark Knight before reminding us that Taken was PG-13.

“As Bryan Mills, Neeson goes on the hunt for human traffickers who kidnapped his daughter, intending to use her for sexual slavery. Sexual slavery. Try explaining that one to the kiddies at home….As you would expect, people also die left, right and center and at one point, Neeson even straps electrodes to a man’s testicles. Ouch. The message here? Don’t leave America EVER, or your kid will get taken… again… and again… and again.”

Neeson speaks out for more gun control regularly so add him to the hyopcrite list.

  2. ExNuke says:

    Why would anyone expect anything different from Repressive hypocrits? They claim to hate guns but they love making enough money to have someone else carry guns for them so they don’t have to touuch the “nasty things” or have any responsibility if THEY should need protection.

  3. Mike Sanders says:

    The “new” study cited in the article is three years old.

    Pure nonsense. People do not buy firearms because they saw a piece of fiction. LOL

    • Brandon Jones says:

      Stats prove you wrong, so sorry if the facts make you feel something otherwise

    • Brandon Jones says:

      “Hollywood will always play a part in the sale of firearms, whether the publicity is positive or not. As the old saying goes, ‘any publicity is good publicity.’ Gun manufacturers are well aware of this.” – Brian Graves, owner of Colorado-based BMK Arms Inc.

      When asked about the “Die Hard” films: “After that, everyone wanted a Glock handgun. That movie literally made Glock in America; they weren’t popular before that. Hollywood can influence sales, and in this case the ‘Glock 7’ used in the film was fictional. It doesn’t even exist.” — Wesley Morris, owner of the California-based gun store Ten Percent Firearms
