Say Goodbye To My Little Friend


David Arquette supports gun control and ammunition limits in film:

Hollywood actor David Arquette said he would support President Barack Obama and Congress regulating the depiction of ammunition in Hollywood films.

ďHey, listen, if you want to restrict the amount of bullets that fit in a magazine and then restrict that also from being able to show that amount of bullets in a clip on a movie screen, Iím totally down with it. Go for it,Ē Arquette told TheDC on Inauguration Day.

If these Hollywood leftists had their way, we will never have another great film like The Godfather, Scarface, Apocalypse Now, Platoon, Unforgiven, etc.

1 What a complete idiot. Defies belief....Im really...rarely, but certainly now, lost for words.

2 While I don't agree with him, at least he's a man of conviction and is willing to also apply the ban to his art as well. The majority of leftists and actor's/actress's want a complete ban without the censorship of their work.

3 that wouldn't be limiting the first amendment though..... I hate them all so very much

4 What they really oughta do, is restrict the number of rounds fired to the number that's actually in each magazine.

5 How about we raise revenue by placing a cap you can earn from the "performing arts"?

Let's say... $250,000, since that's the magical "rich" number.

6 #2 Moche - No he isn't. He mentions the ban, but he doesn't have the conviction to stand by it. He's a rich hollywood actor, but pretends he has no choices:

ďIím an actor, so you know, Iím sort of ó Iím a worker for hire. Iíve
done things in movies and shot guns and all this. I donít shoot guns in
my real life, but you know, Iím also providing a service. Ö I wish I was
in a position to be able to say, you know what, I donít want to do
that, because thereís a gun involved, and I donít believe in guns, but
Iím an actor, and I need to work.Ē

7 There hasn't been a good movie depicting our real enemies (i.e. muslims and communists) since the days of Golan-Globus. Now the standard formula is to start a movie with us suspecting the muslim/commie, but end the movie with the "real" enemy being exposed-- a rich older white guy.

8 I was unaware that Unforgiven -- a western set in the late 1880s? -- had anything more than 6 shooters, basic rifles and a shotgun or 2. Still, I am totally with you. Those other flics would suck without reality. Maybe I can be like Hillary Clinton and suspend reality?

Nobody gives a damn what this second rate, has been, washed up moron has to say!

10 If restrictions are placed on gun owners and mirrored on the big screen, shouldn't gun and magazine restrictions also apply to law enforcement.

11 Nor would they ever be able to portray movies such as Saving Private Ryan.

@10 Charles: Yeah, I agree, it should apply across the board, especially for those NYC cops who shoot maybe a few hundred rounds every year at the range.

12 OK, so they limit and ban fantasy (movie) guns. Big deal. Still have to deal with reality which has to ask 'where is the ban on criminals, terrorists and mentals with guns and endless clips'?

13 @ D'Martyr: yeah I see your right. So he needs the work and does what he does just to get by. My bad, he is a piece of shit.

14 I reckon the compromise solution is to allow Hollywankers to shoot as many rounds as they like at each other on set...on condition they only use live ammo.
I gotta say by far and away the thing Americans are best at is making movies. Even the crap ones exhibit a fantastic degree of skill and craftsmanship. I mean the plots and stories might stink but if you are a photographer and amateur movie-maker you can appreciate the incredible maturity of the craftsmanship, the techniques and art of story-telling developed by American movie makers over the last century.
So its really dissonant and gives me a lot of discomfort to also have to be made aware every time they speak in public that most of the actors and direcors involved in the industry are fecking arseholes.

15 I watched Arquette on Lopaz tonight once he is a floggin' goober could not even string a sentence together coherently and acted like some white version of Uncle Tom.
He needs a bath also.
P/S Bye Bye arquette you are after all a loser.

16 I want to know what Charlie Weaver would have to say about this.

Posted by: EROWMER at January 23, 2013 08:05 PM

17 #8 JB - you are correct. Unforgiven is a western. My intent was to list a few of the best (imo) shoot-em-up movies with multiple gun fights, and not necessarily modern, assault rifle movies. But given the article, I can see I was unclear.

They should paint the pointy end of the evil gun pink, so we all will know that they don't really mean it when they shoot someone 100 times with a 10 round magazine.

20 #18 TimothyJ - Lol, and maybe do away with the sound effects. Just have the actors saying, "Pow! Pow pow pow!"

21 @20 Like the British Army in training, they cant afford practice rounds in the blanki nfra-red training system in full auto so they shout "banana, banana" at each other.
Well that was certainly a fact 20 years ago whether it still is. I suspect they are down to using wooden guns by now.

22 "17........ah but! Wasnt it Unforgiven in which Clint demonstrated quick cylinder changesin a blackpowder pistol? If it wasnt Unforgiven I dont recall which one it was. I think it was, he just walks up towards Gene Hackman switching cylinders and firing as he goes.

23 re #17 no worries bro
