    If you do, throw it on sometime and pay attention to two specific scenes that have transit buses with "No NRA!" signs posted on them (likely the same bus used in both scenes) ... just in case you need help finding the scenes ... the first scene, happens in Chicago where Miguel Bain is trying to shoot Robert Rath through the passenger side window in the taxi cab and loses his rifle when Rath slams the cab against the bus ... the second happens in Seattle after Rath tells Electra to flee her home after Bain shows up to kill her. Electra gets in her Mustang and passes by the city bus only turn around after noticing her neighbor on her way back to the building. Anyway, just some useless movie facts. I happen to like this movie so I threw it on yesterday and noticed this for the first time. I looked this up on the Net and it turns out that there is more subliminal propaganda and goofs in the movie. Interesting.

    It's directed by Richard Donner, the director of the "Lethal Weapon" movies. He's very, very liberal, and likes inserting anti-NRA rhetoric in his movies. Basically an idiot and a hypocrite, as he makes money off of showing cops and robbers shooting it out.

    In my younger days, I used to enjoy the original Lethal Weapon. A couple of years ago, my wife bought me the director's cut. It had an entirely new (deleted) scene involving a playground shooting. Of course, it shows of the typical sniper - middle-aged, white male, flannel shirt, AR-15, "spraying" the playground and screaming obcenities. Not hard to figure why it was deleted from the first release. Not to mention the poor acting by the main actor.

    Look in the Lethal Weapon movies, while Murtagh and Riggs are sitting around the cop shop, you can usually spot an anti-NRA poster in the background.

    Richard Donner is a shmuck.

    Not a Donner fan. Peckinpah makes him look like a fool. Now Sam could make a shoot-em-up.
