X-Men and Gun Control

It is a well known fact that Hollywood have used movies to make political and societal commentaries. It is not always bad. However, it all too often leans toward the left. It has also become oxymoronic.

Consider Hollywood’s portrayal of the X-Men series, where mutants are the noble and decent creature through evolution have gained special powers that the normal people don’t. As a result the normal people fear and unjustly ostracize and use torturous means to change them back to normal human beings. This I believe is a commentary on the reflection of how Hollywood perceive our society is treating the LGBTQ community. The X-Men are portrayed as innocent and misunderstood victims and our society are intolerant and ignorant bigots.

Now let’s look at how Hollywood and the liberal Democrat left think about gun control. Whenever that are any gun crimes especially ones involving mass shootings, there is no end to the call for banning of all firearms. Some have even call for the confiscation of all firearms. And anyone who opposes their point of view is evil and ought to be hated. Never acknowledge that these violence are committed by bad people it is the guns themselves that are evil, as if once we banish the guns all violence will cease. Whereas the rational and logical view is that guns are harmless. Guns cannot kill people or injure people in any way by itself. It is an inanimate object like a rock or a chair. The only way that an inanimate object can cause any harm is when it is used by bad people.

I am not here to debate the merits of gun control or the condition of LGBTQ, these are topics that deserve its own post and a much more extensive treatment. I would like to point out the oxymoron liberal left has in treating these two issues. If guns are dangerous regardless of the person that is in possession of them and therefore all of them needs to be banned and confiscated. Then by logical it should follow that all powers of the X-Men need to be banned and removed from them. Because these X-Men possess weapons that are even more lethal than any assault rifles. They have the ability to cause tens and hundreds of times more killings than all the mass shootings combined. And yet I haven’t seen any liberal sentiments that thinks striping the mutants of their powers is a decent and righteous act.
