    Pro gun movies and TV shows

    I know that Hollywood has an acceptable formula for firearms.

    They can be used by:
    Police & military
    Criminals
    Homeowners only when they accidentally shoot a family member or the guns get taken away by bad guys.

    So I was shocked when I watched a pro gun movie.... Jaws....

    Roy Schneider actually stated that what he needed were men with Guns and Boats.

    The Police recruited the public to be armed to shoot the shark...

    Can anyone else reccomend any pro firearm movies or TV shows???

    I'm not so sure a movie like Jaws where the townfolk take up arms in a panic to hunt and kill a crazed shark represents a pro 2A or pro gun movie or stance. The John Belushi movie 1941 has citizens taking up arms, including the oversight of an AA gun to fight the Japs, isn't really pro gun either. Just what people have to do to fight off the immediate evil threat. Now Red Dawn, that's some Oscar worthy pro gun shit to fight the pinko commie bastards. Just replace the commie invaders with your favorite libtard elected official and you have the makings of a pro citizen, pro gun movement movie.

    Now it feels like Jaws was the same movie as Red Dawn

    People in a panic pick up guns in a frenzy to protect themselves from a foreign threat. (I amuse myself easily)

    It's sad that the world watches so much TV/ Movie entertainment and people legally using a gun to protect themself is just not common or does not make for good ratings.

    Can anyone else think of any movies or shows where guns are used responsibly by the public???

    I can't believe nobody has added this yet:

    Boondock Saints

    Everything else is simply second, at best!

    Not exactly a movie or tv show, but I always like this one

    +1 for Sledge Hammer. Even named one of my dogs after him. He also had the hot partner, just like Fred Dryer in Hunter.

    Take a look at "Death Hunt" with Lee Marvin, Angie Dickenson and Charles Bronson. Maybe not exactly "pro gun", but there are a lot of guns and shooting in it.

    From wiki:
    "The 1992 made-for-television movie An American Story (produced by the Hallmark Hall of Fame) was based upon the McMinn County War but set in a Texas town in 1945."

    so the one to watch out for, is "An American Story".

    It doesn't exactly relate to civilians using firearms but Running Man is all about the resistance against a corrupt government.
    Just when you think you've got it figured, you're wrong.
