Leftists are doing everything in their power to chip away at gun rights.
Hollywood, in particular, works hard to push anti-gun messages.
But one pro-gun movie took Hollywood by surprise, and just got some big news for the sequel.
It’s painfully obvious that Hollywood is run by leftists.
Films and television shows are rife with the talking points of the Democrat Party.
It’s no surprise when the movies and shows parrot this sentiment.
For example, in the show Designated Survivor, Kiefer Sutherland plays an “independent” low-level candidate member elevated to the office of the president after a far-right extremist blows up the Capitol during the State of the Union address.
In one episode, Sutherland’s character is pushing for a “common sense” gun ban, but the evil, mustache-twirling Republicans stand in his way.
Sadly, this is what passes for nuance in Hollywood.
However, the film A Quiet Place took a different approach and showed a family in a dystopic future overtaken by indestructible aliens fighting back with guns.
Left-wing critics even labeled the movie problematic because of its uncritical view of armed self-defense.
Despite the haters, the movie grossed over $340 million worldwide and catapulted actor and first-time director John Krasinski to A-list status.
The overwhelming success of the film led to the studio greenlighting a sequel.
Initially,Krasinksi only signed on to write the script, but he recently announced that he would come aboard as the director.
Coincidentally Krasinski starred in the Amazon series Jack Ryan—based on the Tom Clancy novels about a patriotic combat veteran who joins the CIA—and leftists hated that, too.
Krasinski also starred in the Michael Bay film 13 Hours, which chronicled the terror attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya that led to the death of ambassador Christopher Stevens.
Krasinski is quickly shedding his persona as the affable Jim Halpert on the sitcom The Office, and leftists seem uncomfortable with it.
The success of A Quiet Place and many other films that don’t demonize gun use—the John Wick films and the Halloween reboot to name a few—highlight Hollywood’s hypocrisy.
They make successful movies that highlight guns but turn around and decry their existence.
Famed actress Jamie Lee Curtis is one of the worst offenders.
Curtis has pushed for more gun control, but in the Halloween remake, she plays a gun-toting granny who saves the day with her armory of weapons.
Hollywood needs to acknowledge that there’s more than one perspective on guns.
There are over 300 million guns in the United States for a reason; Americans like guns for several reasons and the overwhelming majority of gun owners are responsible.
But the left tries to highlight a handful of firearm misuse to violate everyone’s Second Amendment rights.
Thankfully successful movies like A Quiet Place prove that Hollywood propaganda isn’t winning the argument on guns.
