America starts thinking about Hollywood
The Europeans are quite puzzled as to why the discussion regarding stricter weapon laws in the US following the rampage in Colorado only emerges sporadically. While presidential candidate Mitt Romney doesn't see any need to change anything, president Obama at least thinks about assault rifles. In the meantime, debates regarding the influence of violent films are starting.
The New York Times isn't so vague about it but seems to have targeted Warner Brothers directly:
However, this article provokes hefty resistance, e.g. by blogger David Poland from Deadline, who commented critically on the article:
The MPAA (WB is a member here) has not yet commented on whether the rampage will have any effect on the ratings or not. They can't remain silent for long, though, since even many experts say for years that the violence in PG-13 movies has constantly risen while sex and nudity continue to stay tabooed. However, here, it's complicated to measure actual effects on people, too.
