Mr. Weinstein,Give back every red cent you made on every violent movie you
have made and I might believe you had a genuine change of heart. Oh and fire
every one of your armed security too. I believe you are just trying to
capitalize on a current controversy in order to make money on it. I predict the
movie will not change a thing and will flop overall. I for one do not let
Hollywood dictate my views and morals. Especially from the likes of you. There
are ways to positively effect our society but movies is not one of them.
There are some fairly judgemental comments being sent on this article. Less
entertainment violence is an improvement, and I hope his rethinking leads to
real repentence for him and for those in the industry. Meanwhile,
attacking the NRA is just a knee-jerk reflex for Liberals, and being liberal
isn't something you have to repent of. I hope we can cut him some slack.
I hope the guy is sincere about his change of heart. As for making a movie
challenging the NRA- as a person who owns a fair share of firearms, hunts and
target shoots often, I will be interested to see what he comes up with.
Hopefully he will expose the NRA for what they are- a money grubbing, fear
mongering organization who have held us hostage by ensuring that ammunition
prices have gone out of control and fighting against common sense laws that
could help keep guns out of the hands of unstable people-believe me, there were
several questionable folks in my concealed weapon course. I wish someone would
come up with an organization that is about keeping our second amendment rights
while helping foster sensible laws that will save some lives and educate people
about firearm safety. We will never stop all of the mayhem in our country
caused by people wielding firearms and other weapons, but we can take steps to
help save some lives. I know many other weapons enthusiasts that feel this way,
but we are certainly in the minority here.
Wow! So "part of the problem" decides that the solution is to
"become a bigger part of the problem".Nice.Remember the Alamo! How soon everyone forgets.
It is ironic that Weistein is now going to make an anti-right to own guns
movie.In his 'Kill Bill' movie it was depicted how a pot
bellied couch potato can easily defend himself and his home with a shotgun
against a sword-wielding murderous house invader.
Has he ever thought of doing an uplifting film? Nah.....Not in his character.
The NRA, while imperfect, doesn't promote violence.Hollywood does,
has, and will continue to.Like it or not, as a constitutional right,
guns are here to stay. You'll never amend and ratify the constitution.
You'll never convince millions of gun owners to give up what they feel is
their best protection in a increasingly problematic world. So... what is he
doing? Jumping into politics the only way someone from Hollywood knows how- with
an acute political propaganda film targeting a group for promoting something it
doesn't actually promote.Until this man makes a film examining
Hollywood's role in promoting violence (as he as openly admitted to being
part of the problem), then I'm not entirely convinced his motives are
good."Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them." Pretty
simple, but effective.
I don't think it should be legal to take away the rights granted by the
constitution. Oh wait it's not. ... So why make a movie about it? Anti
This guy and his Hollyweird pals have done more destruction and mayhem to the
wel being of our country than all the depraved killers.He is part of
the problem, not part of the solution, glorifying violence while profiting from
it, setting up role models and a fantasy world which adversely influence
impressionable kids, especially those growing up in unstable homes.Hypocrite does not begin to cover the hutzpah of this guy who now claims to be
