#1 Three Things ‘A Christmas Story’ Reminds Us 35 Years Later

Post by Commander » Thu, 27 Dec 18, 03:59 am

As you gather round to open Christmas gifts, cook Christmas dinner, and spend time with loved ones today, there’s a good chance “A Christmas Story” is on TV in the background.

The classic Christmas movie, which TBS and TNT play as a 24-hour marathon beginning on Christmas Eve, was released 35 years ago, when gun grabbers were less aggressive, and a child could wish for and receive – gasp! – a gun for Christmas, and not be considered dangerous.
I think any suburban boy asking for a gun nowadays would be subject to a psychology exam (without informing the parents of course) at school, an FBI background check, registration of the air gun, and some sort of ammo restrictor modification to the BB gun (maximum three BB capacity).
To see some positive attributes to gun ownership shown in the movie, read the rest of the article. :arrow: link

We had not seen the movie in a few years, and watched it late Christmas Eve. Very fun to watch it again. I’m surprised the station wasn’t surrounded by protesters for airing a movie with such horrid ideas.

I am a firm believer that the only reason It's a Wonderful Life hasn't been attacked is because in it the greedy rich banker actually wins, if that is your definition of winning.

In the case of A Christmas Story, I have to believe that somewhere in the USA there is a place where a little boy can run around on Christmas morning putting his eyeout ;)
