Given that this is a John Milius film (a self-described fascist, I might add),
You forgot to include a comment about how gun ownership relates directly to a man's insecurity about his penis.
From this I must assume that environmentalist wackos are being held accountable for the loss of Europe
A high school massacre ensues. Not the traditional sort of US high school massacre with Americans shooting each other which we are so used to either. The director John Milius would presumably defend every American’s right to do that, after all.
The film opens with a political context, and we read that in West Germany, “Greens” have been elected with the sole mission of removing nuclear weapons from that country. From this I must assume that environmentalist wackos are being held accountable for the loss of Europe, if not the world, to Lenin and his cronies.
...this film is the greatest example of an NRA recruitment piece that I have ever seen. “See,” the filmmakers seem to be saying, “without individual gun ownership those kids never could have fought back and the nation would have been lost!” The film even states that when the Commies set up their bases, the first people they seek out for extermination are those with guns. One of the colonels says that since their names are recorded, they will be easy to find. Get it? We must eliminate background checks and gun registration or else the Commies will know who we are! From all accounts, the Second Amendment was written just for this very purpose;
the kids are easily and happily transformed from passive pussies into hardened killing machines within a few days. One of the kids even says, in response to a question about how it was to kill a man, “It was good.”
And finally, just for good measure, Europe is said to be “sitting this one out,” which is another way of saying that them Europeans is just a bunch a no-good, Commie-lovin’ atheistic *beep* Republicans then, Republicans now.
