    The Brady's dream realized, 'Gun violence in movies on the rise, Study. MyFoxDC Video

    Study: gun violence in movies on the rise Posted: Nov 11, 2013 7:51 AM CST Updated: Nov 11, 2013 11:32 AM CST

    WASHINGTON - A new study finds there are even more shootings in PG-13 movies than in R rated films. Researchers found that when the new ratings were introduced in 1984, gun violence in G films went down. In R rated movies it stayed the same. But gun violence went up dramatically in PG-13 films. Gun violence in PG-13 movies has more than tripled since 1985.

    Sorry, no citation was made to the "study."
    I am responsible for my writing, not your understanding of it.
