@48, speaking of delusional morons, Wayne LaPierre shows a horrendously awful lack of imagination or creativity if he thinks the only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. I can think of many. A few are:
1 - crowbars
2 - tripwire
3 - metal garbage cans
4 - sharp glass
5 - cyanide gas
6 - NOT BEING ALLOWED TO HAVE A GUN
7 - NOT HAVING AMMUNITION TO FIRE FROM THE GUN
8 - knives
9 - garbage bags
10 - a good WOMAN with a gun
.... the list goes on.
A great many, MANY things can stop a bad guy with a gun. No matter whether held by a bad guy or gal or a good guy or gal, I don't want a gun in my daughter's school. Only a delusional moron thinks more guns is a good solution.

Hold your hand up in front of your face. Now focus on something far away -- the wall, a tree, a picture, whatever. What does your hand look like? If it's anything but a fuzzy, out-of-focus hand then you have some seriously freaky & f'ed up eyes.
I won't argue you other points, although I disagree wholeheartedly, but I will point out that if your longest paragraph in a three-paragraph-argument is spent arguing that stuff in front of your eyes should never be out of focus then the rest of your argument becomes extremely suspect.
My thought is, you didn't like the movie going into it because of the marketing campaign. I couldn't agree with you more: the campaign told us we'd see something utterly mind-blowing and for it to be anything else is a failure. Perhaps you might have been more inclined to give it a chance if it had been marketed as: "Hey, remember Jim Cameron... the guy who gave us Aliens, T2, the Abyss and Titanic? Well, here's a new one from him."
