although i found one guy saying this in his review on amazon.com:
In total, this film is entertaining and thought provoking. Though the general conclusion of Jacobs is that guns are lose-lose, the film doesn't suffer because of this fact. As a member of the NRA and firm gun rights advocate, I thought I was going to be annoyed at this film. I wasn't. The end has Coburn not fighting against guns, nor advocating confiscation, but merely moving on with his life and family.
"Gun's" cast of characters includes a Virginia gun shop owner and his college student granddaughter who is pressured to work at the family business; the single mother of a suburban high school assassin; a school principal at a violent inner-city high school; and an exemplary student concealing a handgun at school.

Using the serial number of the .357 Magnum that killed his daughter, Martin traces his grief to its point of origin. from a movie review on line.
If he finds the suspect (that evil gun), he'd better tell the cops. What if it kills him, too?

Runaway Jury :cuss:
When a widow brings a civil suit against the corporate gun consortium she blames for her husband's murder, 'the firm' employs hard-nosed jury consultant Rankin Fitch (Gene Hackman) to secure a favourable verdict. Dustin Hoffman is prosecuting attorney Wendell Rohr, resolutely idealistic despite the large-scale corruption which threatens to steal his case.
This movie is going to be distributed by IFC, which picked up Moore's 9/11 garbage. It shouldn't come as that much of a surprise, but this one will do RKBA more direct damage: people will go see this one just because of the cast.
