    It's not a documentary, it's a one sided show of a man's political agenda. It's full of misleading half-truths, lies and deceptions.

    Some references:

    There are some parts where he chops up Heston's speeches to make him say things he simply didn't say. And he makes it look like the NRA came in right after the school shootings and had a celebration when infact they came months and months afterward and were scheduled over a year in advance. And I CAN'T BELIEVE he tried to blame a shooting of a young girl by a shooter who lived in a CRACK HOUSE on DICK CLARK. He's a liar and an idiot, plain and simple.

    It is certainly one sided, as are Moore's books BUT that doesn't alter the fact that he does make some extremely good points.

    I haven't seen Bowling for Columbine, but I'll probably rent a copy sooner or later. Having seen part of one of Michael Moore's earlier works concerning automotive labor (Roger and Me)...Bowling for Columbine is supposed to be more interesting than that documentary. It is common knowledge that Moore is sympathetic with left-of-center causes; if you go into the theater expecting balanced coverage when watching a Moore film...don't.

    Anyway, if the thesis of Bowling for Columbine is that America's gun culture, perpetuated by the National Rifle Association, is the main cultural influence enabling adolescents to murder, I would have to disagree. I don't really care for the NRA or the belief that guns are some sacred tradition and protector of liberty, but putting the blame on the NRA would be too little. Human culture has glorified violence under certain circumstances for eons; our prehuman ancestors must have had interclan skirmishes like many other species. Today, video games and movies continue to perpetuate this ancient biological tendency.

    I wouldn't want to see the government censoring the media for violent content, but someone needs to maintain responsibility over children. We all know laws won't do a darned thing if the parents and community aren't involved. Public schools shouldn't glorify violence (they should treat art and literature glorifying violence as a different value set), and parents should glorify pacifism.
