Despite Newtown, we crave violent movies

“We have a free and open society that celebrates the First Amendment,” said Chriss Dodd a Motion Picture Association of America chairman. The violence in movies is not the issue when it comes down to copy cat crimes, director Quentin Tarantino said, “Obviously, the issue is gun control and mental health.” The author(Granderson) agrees with this statement while I do as well. Granderson doesn’t believe that the government should pressure Hollywood to make less violent movies, because the industry is just giving us what we want. Out of the top 10 movies grossing movies most of them were pg-13 and and violent. This is another reason why I do not believe that violence in movies is not harmful to youth.
