Reader: When It Comes to Guns, Leave Keanu Reeves Alone

There are 3 comments on the Denver Westword story from Mar 4, 2018, titled Reader: When It Comes to Guns, Leave Keanu Reeves Alone. In it, Denver Westword reports that:

Keanu Reeves might be known in Hollywood as a decent person, but to some in the gun debate, his films are the reason mass shooters carry out heinous crimes. Two days after the shooting in Parkland, Florida, that killed seventeen students and teachers at a high school, a Florida Republican argued that the violence in Reeves's John Wick films had glorified guns and desensitized viewers to their potential dangers.

Here's an idea. Have a note at the beginning and end of the film that guns are fake in the movie and it is part of the entertainment and that guns in the movie should not be an influence in real life. Just a reminder to the audience of the dangers of guns in real life...,Sz

It's an r rated movie so no one under 18 should be able to see it maybe the movie theaters should card kids to make sure they're 18. Maybe parents should pay attention to what their kids are watching on tv. I grew up in the 80's when the movie Scarface came out I didn't need my parents to tell me not to grow up and be a drug dealer and I saw that movie when I was 10. I think if a movie influences you to do stuff like shoot your school up then you have major mental problems and posting a sign at the beginning of a movie that clearly isn't reality ain't going to stop a nut job.
