(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A trip to the movies may not be as innocent as it once was.

A new Journal of Pediatrics study finds gun violence in PG-13 movies has more than doubled since 1985.

The PG-13 rating stands for "parents strongly cautioned--some material may be inappropriate for children under 13."

But researchers are finding movies targeting young people now have more gun violence than R-rated films!

Experts urge parents to talk with their kids about the violence they may see on the screen.
