John de Lancie, whom we may know best as "Q" on "Star Trek: The Next Generation," has a weapon that is beyond anything we can conceive. He picks out violent types at gun shows and offers this to them at a bargain price. It's unregistered and sold out of the back of a truck. Unfortunately, for a young woman, her prisoner husband kills her on the day he has been let out. He has one of de Lancie's guns and as he fires it, it gets fused to his arm with cables and a kind of clear plastic skin. He cannot remove it from his hand. He, however, becomes more and more obsessive and full of blood lust as he chases his dead wife's sister and his little boy. There has been conflict between this woman and her father (Stacy Keach) and it centers around guns and violence. The gist of the story is the effort of these two heavyweight gun people to ultimately face off against each other. Of course, gun rights people may see this as heavy handed, but in the end it's not as big an indictment as you might think. It has a reality to it that may be satisfying. It also has a neat conclusion that works quite well. John de Lancie is really quite an imposing figure, "Q" or no "Q."
