Never watched it when it came out, just did tonight, I'm neither pro or anti gun, as to me a gun is a tool, nothing more nothing less. I owned a few when younger as my father was an avid hunter/shooter and collector. He has no criminal record, nor is he racist or the average persons idea of a "gun nut". I believe the gun is not the issue but the moron in whose hand it ends up. I have fired thousands of rounds, not a one in anger. I no longer own one as I live in an apartment, and the perceived safety of having one is far outweighed by the potential to harm an innocent. My stupid and much hated cell phone will help me more than a pistol in my shaking hand. But my take-away from the film is that for some reason we in this country are terrified of our neighbors, it is astounding to me. Yes we have criminals but so does everywhere, but we are so shoot first ask questions later, how about talking to those different from you, how about not going around with your back up, people tend to react to you as you present yourself, if you are uptight and scared, those you meet are going to feel that vibe, and come at you the same way, we are living a self defeating prophesy. The daily violence shows this to be true. I have walked up to known criminals, extended a hand and simply said "what's up" talked a bit walked away, why, because I treated another, granted one who's lifestyle I do not accept, but still treated them as a human being. I have friends of every race, and enemies of every race, but not BECAUSE of race, due to actions. We have divided ourselves like a prison yard, for no real reason, we are all the same, want the same things, but the hate makes us animals. When animals are armed, you get our fucked up culture. I'm very sad about this, as America is the worlds melting pot, or it was, now it is an armed camp, and innocent people are paying the ultimate price.

Sorry to rant so, but this is a real thing, I don't know besides each of us taking ownership of our actions, that anything can improve?

What do you guys/gals think?
