Anti-gun propaganda is marketed as a sex comedy. Does that seem a bit off to you? I mean it also sounds like a total disaster that only got the green light from the studio because Hollywood is unapologetically left wing. Producer Harvey Weinstein vowed to make an anti-gun film targeting the National Rifle Association with Meryl Streep in 2014, but nothing has come of that project. So, I guess “Is That A Gun In Your Pocket” will have to do.
Starring David Denman (Roy from The Office), John Heard (Home Alone), Cloris Leachman, and Horatio Sanz (formerly of SNL), and some other people, the film is described as such by the Internet Movie Database:
If there's one thing that the men of Rockford Texas love as much as their women, it's their guns. But when a gun incident at a neighborhood school spurs one stay at home mom, Jenna (Andrea Anders), to rethink Rockford's obsessive gun culture, life in this idyllic town is turned upside-down. Much to the chagrin of her husband, (Matt Passmore), Jenna ignites a movement by recruiting the women to withhold sex from the men until every gun in Rockford is vanquished. A wild and hilarious showdown ensues between the sexes. As tensions and libidos rise, the men and women of Rockford must decide what's really important: keeping the peace or getting a piece.
Okay—so I take it that everyone involved in the making of this film forgot that women were responsible for the massive spike in concealed carry permits (they’re obtaining them twice the rate of men), or how they’re the fastest growing demographic of new gun owners. Second Amendment rights aren’t just for white men; they’re for every American. You can certainly choose not to participate, just like how very few Americans exercise their right to a lawful assembly—though that low participation doesn’t mean that's cause for curtailment or outright repeal.
This film has a trifecta of idiocy a) only men like and own guns; b) men only think about sex (
Regardless, I’ll probably watch this movie once it’s available on Netflix just to see if it’s just as bad as the trailer. It comes out in September, and it’s going to be terrible.
