There a lof of celebrities out there that think they are God's gift to people.  There are certain ones that I won't even watch a movie if they are in it.

Yeah, I see a lot of people hanging on the celebrities coat tails or these influncers that I hear or read about.  It's ridiculous to me!

They might be younger and impressionable.

The infinity gun in TV and movies never runs out of ammo.

How do the bad guy always have infinite billets where the cops always run out?

Because the writers and such have never lived in "flyover country" or have any actual first-hand, hands-on experience with firearms like we "deplorables" whose world never intersects theirs.

So they have their own little echo chambers and figure the majority of their intended audience thinks just like they do, so no need to worry about pesky things like technical accuracy.

After all, if Bruce Willis can single-handedly stop an asteroid the size of the one that wiped out the dinosaurs, what's a few dozen too many rounds of ammo fired without reloading in a shoot-out script?

I wonder if there are any airspace restrictions or one could crank up the Cessna 172 and bring a few cameras with fully charged batteries and high capacity memory cards to get some pictures?

Not only that, but apparently every LE member failed their gun shooting accuracy tests.  Bad guy..5 shots, 4 good guys dead.  Good guys, 22 shots, no bad guys shot.

They only run out of ammo for plotlines.

I wonder how many Hollywood crime writers are anti gun except on screen.

Drones would probably be the cheaper way to go.

FWIW

I think they are younger & have no influency from their own homes, that is part of the problem I think.
