In the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, Roger Simon and Lionel Chetwynd take a look at guns and violence in the movies. Does Hollywood have an unhealthy relationship with firearms and violence? Why do depictions of sex merit an "R" rating, while violent acts barely raise an eyebrow? Is it time for the Motion Picture Academy to reasses the ratings systems? These questions, and more, are discussed on this week's Poliwood.
