Yeah I've wondered the same thing since I was a kid when I saw the orginal night of the living dead, and I mean the very first one about, uh 100 years ago! But never fear, my unloaded bb gun was at hand just in case them flesh eaters came through the black and white tv to get my little brother, cousin and I. I was ready!
Guns in horror movies are just a way to make you think its going to be ok, and that they are going to be able to protect themselvs.
2 min after the action begins the "macho" man that had the gun is out of ammo or dead.
Guns in horror movies= false hope.

Scary movies wouldn't last long if the bad guy got shot and died right away.
Although, for a special niche market (us and others like us on DC) I think a scarier movie would be dealing with the aftermath and some stupid DA trying to throw you in jail and take away your guns.

I've always believed in the Nuclear option myself or blast furnace set at 2,000 degrees, that would take care of Michael and Jason, now Freddy is another story.

Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.
If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.
I agree. There are many a movie/tv show (not just horror) where I've said to myself, "You know a bullet would have solved this problem a long time ago."
The last horror flick I watched was "the state of the union"...oops ...sorry,couldn't help myself...
