Jennifer Carlson skated slowly, carving figure-eights in the ice. Every few seconds, she spun but kept her blades on track, trying to make that perfect arc. When finished, she began again. A quick turn, then circle, spin, circle, spin. Figure skating practice generally goes this way at Iceland, a rink in Paramount that looks like an old airplane hanger. Carlson, 15, spends five days each week working to perfect those figure-eights.

It's one thing to possess a stylistic deadpan touch and another to be just plain dull. "Lansdown," the feature writing and directing debut of Tom Zuber, is the latest in a string of comedy-tinged indie films noir dating back at least as far as the Coen brothers' 1984 "Blood Simple." And though there's a thin noir line between lust and hate, "Lansdown" delivers nothing to stir the passions of filmgoers one way or the other.
OPINION

Re "The NRA's hidden power," Opinion, Jan. 3 I commend Jennifer Carlson for her insight on the National Rifle Assn.'s grass-roots power and would add another comment on the philosophical side. This country was founded by individuals who were forced to take care of themselves. This self-reliance underpinned our nation's independence and westward expansion. Today we look to the government to supplement our living and protect us from lawless individuals. Those who choose to carry guns are expressing that historical philosophy of taking care of themselves in areas where the government is unable to fully meet the challenge.

Far from the halls of Congress, the press conferences and the TV talk shows, there is a different kind of gun politics happening in America. It isn't about which gun to ban or what the 2nd Amendment "really" means. Instead, it is about everyday fears and risks, both real and imagined, and the very personal decision to carry a gun for self-protection. According to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics, there are at least 8 million Americans licensed to carry a concealed gun today.
