(ANI): The posters of latest James Bond flick Quantum of
Solace depicting a metre long machine gun, have been
criticised for glorifying armed violence. After British Advertising
Standards Authority banned 'Wanted' posters in UK for glamorising
the use of guns and violence, the Anti Gun campaigners want James
Bond posters banned on the same grounds.
With the growing rate gun crime amongst the kids in the UK, the
campaigners emphasize on the ban. "Kids are killing each other they
are shooting and stabbing each other and everyone has to take
responsibility for stopping this." The Daily Star quoted Lyn
Costello from 'Mothers Against Murder and Aggression', as
"We have not
received any complaints yet, but if we do then there is a process
that has to be followed," an Advertising Standards Authority
spokesman said. However the James Bond flick company Sony Pictures
did not comment on the whole issue.
