Vague arguments about gun violence -- i.e., whether a gun is a tool for good or for evil, whether it depends on who's holding it, or whether it's evil in and of itself. Should a gun's maker be held responsible for the deaths of those killed with it? But these ideas aren't discussed in depth, and no answer is offered. On the other hand, the movie's biggest conflict seems to revolve around whether to accept the supernatural/unexplained as a part of life.
