I just watched the second part of Michael Moore’s trilogy, ‘Bowling for Columbine’. This one actually made me laugh out loud once or twice, so I must be developing my satirical edge. Kudos to Mike.
Anyway, as usual, Michael did loads of stunts (propping the photo of the 6 year old girl who got killed by her classmate in Flint against one of Chuck Heston’s pillars was my favourite). And he actually got KayMart to stop selling 9mm bullets (though it seems you can still pick up a gun from your local bank).
But Mike failed to address the main question, although he raised it often enough. Why not kick out the second amendment that gives him and his countrymen and countrywomen the right to possess guns? After all, as Chuck pointed out to Mike, it was stupid white men (okay, Chuck used the word ‘wise’, but we know what Mike thinks of these guys) who made the decision, so it must be a stoopid idea. And Mike himself tells us that during only 2% of break-ins do guns actually shoot the bad guy. The rest of the time, the shooter shoots his/her loved ones (or themselves).
So, a plea to Mike. Join with me in making the world a safer place by kicking out the second amendment.
