Blood of American Children on Arnie's Hands?

At least U.S. Senator Diane Feinstein thinks so, claiming that Arnold Schwarzenegger's films promoted gun violence among American youth.

However, she forgot one important thing. Even if the whole "movies turn our innocent children into homicidal maniacs" rubbish has some limited connection to truth, Arnold Schwarzenegger hardly bears any responsibility for that. He is an actor. He never wrote scripts for those movies, he didn't direct them, he didn't produce them, and finally, he didn't sit in censorsh… ratings boards that gave PG-13 ratings to movies with gun violence.

Most of Holllywood screenwriters, directors, producers and censors are, as fair as common perception goes, Democrats. Schwarzenegger, being a Republican, is much easier target for Feinstein in her anti-Hollywood crusade.
