Close the Handcuffed Cop Loophole

How come we never see movies where characters (or their straw purchasers) go through a proper NICS background check before obtaining a firearm? To be fair, the gun shop owner in Terminator did tell the cyborg that there was a 15-day waiting period for the handguns.

    Just like the women at the local nightclub, only friendlier. Randy

    I love me some misandry in the morning.

      +1

      This B.S. is ridiculous. So much misandry in Hollywood.

        True, but in defense of this movie, it appears that it’s revenge for being raped.

        1. avatar Anon in CT says:

          Maybe the first killing. But then it appears to be revenge against anyone who ever hurt their feelings.

        Violently anti-male propaganda?

        1. avatar 16V says:

          There’s violently anti-male propaganda everywhere.

          At least in this we get hot girls, guns, and duct tape! (as well as power tools) to go with it.

    I have to say, I’m looking forward to seeing this. Certainly seems to put an interesting spin on victimization and gun control.

    “Phased Plasma Rifle in 40 Watt Range.”
    “Just what you see pal”… Terminator (1)

      lol I loved the way he said “the Uzi 9mm”. When that movie came out I was in junior high and you could be walking in the hall or in the lunch room and you’d here someone shoot off a line from that flick everyday for a good few months after i came out.

      That 15 day California state waiting period was thanks to Reagan btw. We can’t trust any politician it seems.

        Strangely, the new ad-hoc group “gun appreciation day” has a quote from Ronald Reagan on their masthead. Not exactly a shining example of RKBA…

    2. avatar NWGlocker says:

      He wouldn’t shoot any plasma rifle that’s less than a 40

    Gun looks like a S&W 5906 with target sights.

    I have a problem.

  7. avatar Lance says:

    Hay felt sorry for the poor gun shop owner in “The Terminator”!

    1. avatar In Memphis says:

      And I felt sorry for all thoes innocent contractors building the second Deathstar but Im not crying lol

    I’m with Paul and Lance… that scene is from the first film, not the magnificent T2.

    Did I see a drill in there somewhere? That was one of Jeffrey Dahmer’s favorite tricks to pull on some of his victims.

      I think it was a reciprocating saw.

    I would guess that Uncle Joe will recommend to POTUS that this movie not be shown, you know, as part of a broader plan to combat gun violence….not

  11. avatar Anmut says:

    Uzi 9mm?

    Anyway – this movie looks retarded. I can’t wait until two goth high school girls cut up their boyfriends in some backwoods down in PA because they saw this movie about hating men. Of course, the guns will be blamed. If there are any left by then.

    It’s like someone did a gritty reboot on the Lifetime Channel.

  13. avatar Greg Camp says:

    Interesting to see Danielle Panabaker in that role. She played such a goodie in Shark.

  14. avatar Mark says:

    Perpetuating the myth that proximity to a firearm turns anyone into a homicidal maniac. Very helpful, Hollywierd.

    Happy to be married and not in the dating scene these days….

    I watched that bounty hunting film with Katherine Heigl (forgot the name of it already), and interestingly it has her getting her first gun in NJ, and everyone pretty much giving her a pass on having and carrying a handgun around without having gotten a permit.
    (I’m in favor of “constitutional” carry, as a gun person I thought the way it was handled in the film was interesting).

    1. avatar 16V says:

      Depending on the State, many allow bounty hunters to CCW without additional permitting.

    Part of the reason can be attributed to PsyOps carried out by the likes of our beloved gun running, drug cartel supporting US Attorney General, Eric Holder.

    In a 1995 Press Conference for a public campaign to “really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way”, Eric Holder elaborated saying,

    “What we need to do is change the way in which people think about guns, especially young people, and make it something that’s not cool, that it’s not acceptable, it’s not hip to carry a gun anymore, in the way in which we changed our attitudes about cigarettes.”

      But I do agree that Congress needs to act and do something about the Handcuffed Cop Loophole.

      Think of the children…THE CHILDREN!!!

    Bertrand Russell also wrote:

    “With the support of the media, educational system, & the right propaganda tools, you can make people believe snow is black.”
