    Anti-Gun Film Festival Honors Pro-Gun Filmmaker -- Sort Of


    Apparently unaware that its producer/writer/director is an outspoken pro-gun advocate, the Moondance International Film Festival, whose stated goal is to "encourage and inspire non-violent conflict resolution," has selected J. Neil Schulman's Lady Magdalene's as a semifinalist in this year's competition. Upon learning of the selection, Schulman congratulated the festival's director "on her openness in placing art before politics, in an age when virtually all film festivals filter out any film not promoting their own narrow prejudices." Informed that Schulman is the webmaster of the World Wide Web Gun Defense Clock, which promotes armed self-defense; is the writer of Stopping Power: Why 70 Million Americans Own Guns; and that his movie reflects his pro-gun views, English said in a statement that the film was selected "based on the film's story of a kind of feminine self-empowerment, but I do not, and Moondance certainly does not, advocate the kind of violence depicted in this film ... which is the reason the film will not be screened at the film festival." The festival is scheduled to take place in Universal City on September 7-9.
    Ah, savor the irony....
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    "Moondance" .......well, HALF the name is right.


    feminine self-empowerment is ok by these folks as "non-violent conflict resolution", I wonder is she's a tough chick that doesn't need a man to defend her? That wouldn't necessarily be non-violent. As long as it's not a white, male, Christian it's ok to be self-empowered. Otherwise you're a racist, opressor.

    There are some fine folks out there among the gun grabbers that manage to surrvive. Stephen Hunter the movie critic for the Washington Post. The Post if fairly liberal read anti gun. Stephen Hunter has authored several books on a shooter that could be the fictional personage of Carlos Hathcock the famous sniper of Vietnam.
    If you read fiction read some of Hunters books and note his knowledge of guns.
