writer---I also am thinking pre 80's when discussing older movies. It's the age gap I guess----Think Roy Rogers, Lone Ranger,even Cartrights. The late 70's,80's started the blow them up, blood and guts movies.

Jim,This is 2013, This is not the worl of the 50's. It seems to me that there is alot of talk about big brother taking all our guns,Quite a stretch .However what you believe seems prevelant on this Bd and actually in warren Co. It also showshow divided the country is right now, Ill bet you could start a good size militia in the area.actually I dont think it would be to hard to find the one that exists Regionally.

First I'd like to state that I'm on the side of staying armed.

However I'm not sure your argument holds up. What percentage of movies pre-1970 showed violence of that nature? Also CGI has made killing people much more realistic than it's ever been. So I think that's why people use that argument.

But I will say if you go back to the early 1900s and read obituaries you'd be amazed at the graphic detail they used to print.

I laugh when people claim that when they grew up movies were good and clean, then I see an old movie and there is tons of violence. Just watch "Night of the Living Dead" a fairly old movie with lots of head shots.
