I had a discussion with a friend some time ago, he said that in “Bowling for columbine” Moore* wanted to show that easy access to weapons and their large distribution in the US are responsible for people being killed, i said that i think he meant that the culture and the media are responsible for an atmosphere which boosts violence.

What do you think?


*I am not a fan anymore since i read that he faked many things in his documentarys.

I think both are factors.  Were guns not available, crackpots would use knives, but they wouldn’t be able to kill wholesale.

Hey, I look at Moore as our version of Rush Limbaugh, neither has much respect for the truth, but they make one think.  LOL
