Thread Name: BS: Michael Moore's Bowling for Columbine
Subject: RE: BS: Michael Moore's Bowling for Columbine
The bottom line of all this is so simple...Americans love guns, they have too many of them, they murder each other at alarming rates, they think it is all constitutional. How odd this thinking is. But how very American. I think there is some great flaw in any culture that calls upon one of the great humanitarian documents (The US Constitution) to justify murder, mayhem and collective fear of one"s neighbour. Perhaps the problem lies in the lack of political sophistication that hnours "constitutional rights" but really doesn't understand what they means.
