HOLLYWOOD GUN HYPOCRISY: SKYROCKETING VIOLENCE ON SCREEN, SECRET ARMORY HOUSES 16,000 FIREARMS…

The NRA and the entertainment industry interact publicly as mortal enemies. But as the number of weapons shown in movies and TV steadily increases — and stars like Matt Damon and Angelina Jolie make fortunes wielding guns onscreen a co-dependence that keeps both churning is revealed: “making the liberal bias a lot of money”
BURNISHED BY THE LOW LIGHT OF GLASS-WALLED DISPLAYS, THEY seem like ancient artifacts, but the objects here are beloved contemporary icons. One case houses the massive Smith & Wesson Colt .44 wielded by Clint Eastwood’s “Dirty Harry” Callahan in the 1973 film Magnum Force. In another rests the Beretta 92F used by Bruce Willis in Die Hard. All the great shoot-’em-up classics — The Bourne Identity, Pulp Fiction, The Wild Bunch — are here. This exhibit, celebrating cinema, isn’t in Hollywood; it’s thousands of miles away, a museum at the headquarters of the National Rifle Association in Fairfax, Va.
