    Critics: 'The Purge' an attack on Tea Party, NRA | Fox News

    Seem we NRA nuts will run the world in 2022! JMHO if we keep going like we are, I think the purge will start soon!

    Just added a FN 5.7 to the armory! Just in case! Good deal on a used one! Please pass the ammo!

    What a crock. Hollywood at it's worst...making big money off of extreme violence and greed while accusing Americans of being extremely violent and greedy.

    The funny part is that if you are looking to be attacked, you will find attacks everywhere. I would have never concerned the movie as an attack on the NRA or Tea Party, might be able to consider it an attack on evil corporations. But if you want to play the victim, you can find something to be offended at in just about everything. If you really want to be offended about something, how about the poor story line and bad acting?

    Well, you can look at like this:
    Unemployment and crime in the movie is at an all time low. Owning guns is not forbidden. And the use of them for home defense and self defense is highly encouraged. In fact, in the movie the onus is on the person to defend themselves, not the government since all emergencey calls are not answered and LE does not come to your rescue.

    Now...isn't this exactly what we have all been preaching? Imagine Chicago if they had a purge and all GG's were armed and had to take care of themselve and have the Ultimate Castle Doctrine and Stand Your Ground laws in full force to give them immunity.

    It is gun owners heaven!

    JL...you got Hollywood all wrong!


    BTW: I am planning on seeing it when it comes in Netflix of Amazon.

    I am planning on seeing it when it shows up on one of the movie channels, if I don't have something better to do that day.

    You hit the nail on the head. Crime is low. Unemployment is low. Its about the individual having to defend themselves. It is everything we preach....I to look forward to seeing it. You can not blame the NRA and Tea party for rich white guys that are out of control. Not while the blooming idiot is still mayor of NYC.....
