* ArtisticLicenceGunSafety: The museum has displays filled with working guns, ammo for the guns, a loaded cannon that is in no way kept from being used, and laughably useless security in the form of glass that isn't even bulletproof. Arguably invoked, as San Angeles is so pacifistic that the mere idea of stealing these guns is unthinkable to someone of that time. Only a psycho like Phoenix would actually go as far as to steal them.

Added DiffLines:

* MartialPacifist: John Spartan is clearly a DestructiveSavior. He had no qualms about destroying a mall to a save a girl. But he doesn't enjoy violence, and can distinguish between hardcore criminals like Simon Phoenix who need excessive force, and petty crooks like Edgar Friendly who only commit crime because they are forced to the margins of society.
--> '''John Spartan''': Hurting people's not a good thing! Sometimes it is, but not when it's a bunch of people looking for something to eat!
