I find the MPAA a bit disturbing although I'm not sure it is hypocritical, but the two items that are the basis of movie ratings are so widely off, it's disturbing.
Nudity and Sex vs. Violence. Movies are allowed quite a bit of violence yet almost any portrayal of nudity or sex gets you an R rating faster than one can blink. I find it mostly disturbing because the result is sex and love are vilified while violence is glorified. I'm not talking porn, but just you typical mainstream movie. It's ironic because violence is one of the biggest problems in our country as shown in the earlier gun control and 2nd amendment debates.
Interestingly, in regards to that debate, I'm not sure how I feel. I honestly believe the forefathers anticipated that amendments would evolve over time rather than become fixed into stone like they've become. I also believe that for the US to become a safer place that people are going have to be willing to give up some of their rights in terms of either the 1st or 2nd amendment. I'm not sure both can coexist. As far as the purpose of the 2nd amendment goes arguing that assault weapons keeps you even with the military neglects the fact that today's military would still beat you with its tanks, planes, and bombs. An assault rifle isn't going to get you much further than a non-assault rifle in a revolution. As it is, civil unrest in this country is more likely to be successful on a cyber or economic front than a military or battle front.
All that being said... Gun control won't solve anything. Criminals will get their weapons one way or another. People think too narrowly; their are issues such as mental health, public perception of violence, etc. that need to be overhauled along with or instead of gun control.
