Hollywood Calls for Gun Control, Yet Features Gun Violence 212 Times in Four of Its Top Movies

“Hollywood’s hypocrisy about Harvey Weinstein is only outdone by its hypocrisy about gun control,” Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell declared Thursday in response to findings of a new MRC study on movie gun violence.

Hollywood is calling for more gun control – but, features copious gun violence, including 100 uses of automatic weapons, in four of its most profitable movies in theaters today, Bozell explained:

“You just knew the Hollywood celebrity crowd would jump all over that issue in the wake of the Las Vegas massacre. Yet in just four of the biggest movies showing around the country at this very moment – Kingsman: Golden Circle, American Assassin, It, and Mother! – there are no less than 212 incidents of gun violence.
