While addressing the issue of school shootings last year, NRA VP Wayne LaPierre decried on Hollywood’s “blood-soaked films” for promoting a culture of violence. Now Hollywood is getting ready to fight back, and to put the blame back on the NRA’s shoulders.
Producer Harvey Weinstein revealed that he and Meryl Streep are gearing up to make The Senator’s Wife, described as a Mr. Smith Goes to Washington-esque drama targeting the gun lobby.
