I know I was asking for it...(more Jodie Foster)
Before I say anything else, I know I shouldn't be surprised and I knew it was coming, but it still irritates the heck out of me.
I was watching the Daily Show last night with John Stewart, and Jodie Foster came on the show promoting her new movie "The Brave One". The movie is about her getting a gun and looking for trouble after getting jumped and her fiance killed in New York City.
Anyway they talk quickly about shooting guns, and then she says something along the lines of "yea, having a gun on you definitely does something to you. It's a very powerful feeling. I don't feel that people should be allowed to walk around with guns. It gives you the feeling that, hey-I don't have to wait in this line, and I might pull it out then".
Anyone who would say something like that DEFINITELY doesn't need to be carrying a gun. But of course this plays into everyone's fears that are watching this at home. More anti propaganda.
You could make the same statement about a butter knife, so let's start banning them. Having a tool doesn't make you evil, it's the person who has decided to use violence as a means to threaten others that is the danger. It's the mindset.
That's it, I just needed to rant about it. It never ceases to amaze me how rational thinking doesn't play a part in society.
