This is ridiculous… the Advertising Standards Authority in the UK has decided that an ad for the DVD version of an Angelina Jolie movie shows too much gun action.
The film follows the initiation of an office drudge Wesley Gibson (played by James McAvoy ) into a mythical group of super-powered assassins. The ad for the DVD release shows McAvoy and co-star Jolie wielding pistols, a shotgun, and generally spraying scene after scene with bullets.
The authority said the ad — which juxtaposes images of gun violence with Jolie showing off her bare back — “could be seen to condone violence by glorifying or glamorizing the use of guns.”
I am starting to think that every man in the UK who is not terrified of guns must be a member of the SAS. You Brits have some tough soldiers, but your populace….
The ruling underlined Britain’s sensitivity to gun crime.
Have you limey’s figured out that the worst thing that you can do is disarm the law abiding citizens, making them easy prey for the criminals (who, being criminals, will ignore your stupid gun laws) ??? What a bunch of short-sighted pansies.
