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?

    “by taking away one of their Constitutional rights.”

    Twitchy is laboring under a common mental misconception.
    “We” can’t take away the right to keep and bear, or the right to free speech. “We” didn’t grant the right… *and neither right is a Constitutional right*.

    They are both God-given rights which the Constitution merely *protects*.
    Change the Constitution, and we still have the rights. It’s just a helluva lot more difficult to exercise them.

    Wonder where the term “peace officer” originated, and if he had tools at his disposal to insure continued success in his endeavor?

    @gopfirecracker tweeted my thoughts exactly. Did Farrow even bother to respond to her critics like @gopfirecracker or just ignore them as usual? I wont bother going on her feed and giving her any of my time to find out.

    Mia don’t you have a daughter to adopt so she can marry your husband or ex-husband. You and Woody are the last people who need to lecture on anything.

      I think I rented that movie — “It’s Okay, She’s My Ex-Girlfriend’s Step-Daughter”.

    “World Peace”. Would that be just before or just after a cure for (fill in disease)?

    So disingenuous. She KNEW it was a violent film before going (if she went at all).
    I could NEVER in a million years force myself to sit through a movie that I found so “REALLY hard to watch”. In fact I change the channel every single time the ASPCA animal abuse commercial starts. If I’m not near the remote I run out of the room till it’s over. Go back to Sudan, Mia, where they’re so peaceful and free. They probably have *bonus* gun control.

    I haven’t checked but I’m totally sure she’s not pro choice and would NEVER agree with the violent act of abortion. I’m also sure she’s sat through plenty of abortion videos to make that informed decision. Just like the rest of Hollywood.

    Great film. It shows how badly republicans treated slaves and were actually responsible for over 98% of the slave-trade by volume. Democrats only owned 2% of the slaves. Evil GOP.
