Too Many Guns?
I love action movies. I doubt direct correlations between pop culture violence and real life (Otherwise every 80s kid raised on Stallone/Schwarzenegger flicks would have become Eric Harris or Dylan Klebold). But in light of the gun violence epidemic, maybe some new narratives should be offered through entertainment. Maybe instead of ordinary guys pushed too far and embarking on violent revenge, how about violent guys giving up on revenge and seeking a peaceful, ordinary life?
