    but think about what you said. We had Bowling For Columbine and what did it manage to achieve? The PR machine for the gun lobby will turn the conversation into the movie, not the subject. It will be "it's a shameless film, exploiting the deaths of children for politic ends".

    The emotional effort is going to have to be grassroots driven but not come from Hollywood.

    You can't assassinate the character of any of modern conservative. You'd have to find where it was buried, dig it up, resurrect it, then kill it. And killing a zombie isn't really assassination, is it?

      and do be graphic! I avoid those graphic "blow their brains out" movies, but people love it and it will get discussion going.

      I don't know what consciousness is or how it works, but I like it.
