You damn dirty gun grabber!
The latest Planet of the Apes movie has an anti-gun message? Well, that makes me less likely to seek out the movie and watch it, now.
Super intelligent monkeys at war with us Humans? I'd think that would be a better argument for universal rifle ownership AND mandatory training.
I've never liked monkeys. I never understood why Human's urge to kill off Neanderthals didn't extend to monkeys. At least the bigger kinds, chimps, orangutuans, gorillas. See what happens? They get super intelligent and go to war with us. If spiders could grow to the size of housecats there would be a concerted effort to extinctify them, too. Anyway, a species that represents an existential threat? You don't want that on the same planet.
Now, the important question: What caliber for smart-monkey warfare? These are animals that might be able to take more punishment than a man. 5.56 and 9mm might not be enough. More 'ammunition' for fans of 7.62x51mm and .45ACP, again. Great. But if 9mm wasn't enough to stop a drug crazed Moro looking to end Yankee imperialism in the Phillipine, it sure isn't gonna work against a Mountain Gorilla outside Woodley Park.
