Can someone tell me why his films often have antigun propaganda
in them? Like _Jurassic Park_, where he actually changed significant
details of the book to make a "guns are useless" subplot?
Dan Gifford, the producer _Waco: The Rules of Engagement_, told
me at the American Society of Criminology conference last year
that he had spoken with some of the people involved in the screenplay
for _Schindler's List_. They removed a significant and interesting
subplot of the book, in which Schindler obtained small arms for
"his" Jews to use as self-defense, both because they knew of
Spielberg's feelings about gun control, and because of concern
that it might injure gun control groups at the following election.
Remember, many gun controllers (like Sylvester Stallone) own
guns -- they just don't want the serfs to own them.
