Interesting comparison Moore made in Bowling For Columbine between gun ownership in the USA and Canada, and the respective murder rates for each country....

The comparison makes a salient point. Canadians own lots of guns, yet even with the adjustment made for the population disparity the murder rate for the entire country is miniscule compared to the murder rate in the States. Makes one wonder why.

Marilyn Manson's contribution to the documentary was key, my opinion. He is a very astute (and music industry savvy) individual - still can't hang with his music long, though. His guitar player, John 5, has a new album out of eclectic music that - get this - includes some bluegrass and country "chicken" picking. It is a strange world in which we live.
