Hollywood pretends to understand Texas gun culture
Dumbest movie ever or THE dumbest movie ever?
Is That a Gun in Your Pocket is set to hit theaters in September takes aim at Texas and our love of guns.
The film’s official website provides the following synopsis:
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.
The trailer being an indicator, the women of Rockford band together and decide to withhold sex until their husbands agree to part ways with their true objects of affection — their firearms.
Beyond the obvious idiocy of the plot line is the simple little fact that no self-respecting Texan woman would ever do such a thing. Why? We fully understand the best way to avoid victimhood is to shoot back. We’ve also been raised with guns of all kinds for all purposes.
And that “obsessive gun culture,” well, it keeps us safer than states and cities who’s laws speak to irrational fear of inanimate objects. Take Plano, Texas for example. It’s one of the most heavily armed cities in the country and has an incredibly low murder rate. El Paso, situated along the contentious Texas/Mexico border, too is safe and you would know their gun laws are super lax too.
But it’s not like I expect those pushing an agenda to give a damn about facts.
The tired and patronizing “all southerners are morons incapable of understanding their own idiocy” meme is sure to pack theaters down south…
Dream on, Hollywood.
