When I read the title I was thinking maybe thats why Movie Theatres may be posted...they don't want a buncha bullet holes in the screen everytime some CCW flips out at a horror flick and takes on the BG
"Outside of the killings, Washington has one of the lowest crime rates in the country,"
--Mayor Marion Barry, Washington , DC .
Hollywood has such a beef against firearms that they even take a jab at it in "The Hunted".
"The Hunted" starred Tommy Lee Jones (TLJ) and he had to track down this BG. TLJ & the BG had been in the military together where TLJ taught the BG how to engage in HTH combat with a knife. I don't remember all of the details but Nutnfancy does a review on this if you want more info on it.
The conflict comes about where TLJ is put in a position to where he is now going to have to track down the BG and bring him to justice. At some point in the film, TLJ makes some statement about how he doesn't like guns. I guess TLJ thinks its more humane to slash someone to death in a knife fight; somehow that's more civil than simply shooting someone.
To each his own I suppose.
