In the section of the film set on the planet Takodana, Finn is given a blaster from Han Solo. Finn is seen carrying the weapon with him at all times leading up to the scene where Maz Kanata gives Luke Skywalker's lightsaber to Finn in order to deliver it to Rey. In this scene, the blaster can still be seen strapped to his back. However, in the next sequence, as the characters escape from the rubble of the cantina, Finn emerges with no blaster and only the lightsaber. He then turns to Maz and complains about needing a weapon, to which she implies the lightsaber is all he really needs. But what happened to the blaster? See more »
Lor San Tekka:
This will begin to make things right. I've traveled too far and seen too much to ignore the despair in the galaxy. Without the Jedi, there can be no balance in the Force.
Well, because of you, now we have a chance. The General's been after this for a long time.
Lor San Tekka:
Oh, the General? To me, she is royalty.
Well, she certainly is that.

We should have known this film will be a trick and swindle as soon as Disney handed it to the remake/reboot hack specialist JJ Abrams.
He has since garnered the nickname Jar Jar Abrams, but it should have been clear that in lieu of making a new (sequel) Star Wars film with imagination and creativity our Jar Jar here will work on a calculated script to make money money money Star Wars its universe and lore be damned.
The remake is The Force Awakens. It takes the Star Wars plot and lore and infantalizes it with the very chic and hip (sarcasm) girl power and Disney brass like the much hated Kathleen 'ho for the money' Kennedy watch the cash wad fly.
Bad (quite awful) 'actors', a story ripped off from the original, but without depth and the aforementioned commercial director make this film a signal to the movie going public to just move on.
