Look, we’re not suggesting that violent films and video games are to blame for the mass shooting that took place in Newtown, Conn. — we know who pulled the trigger there, and it wasn’t director Quentin Tarantino or the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre.
If we are going to have a national conversation on guns, though, can we at least ask why those in Hollywood who are so appalled by them can’t seem to find a movie prop they love more? We’d hate for a hasty response to a tragedy to result in punishing those in no way responsible by taking away one of their Constitutional rights.
Mia Farrow already got tickets to Tarantino’s “Django Unchained,” so now we don’t know what to get her for the holidays.
Sounds good. What does anyone else want?
Self-righteous lecturing? You mean like this?
