Thread Name: Anti-Moore 'Revoke the Oscar' website
Subject: RE: Anti-Moore 'Revoke the Oscar' website
Gee, (1) I read everything on that site saying Moore is a liar, and I fail to see where the meaning of anything Heston said was distorted. It was compressed to make it seem punchier. I don't like the idea, but after all, Heston did say all those things and he was quoted as saying and I see no injustice in cutting out the boring stuff he said in between. The meaning was not changed.
(2) How does anyone know whether it is "illegal" guns that make problems? It seems that at gun shows, anybody legally can sell guns to anybody else off the trunk of a car, no license and no questions asked. People mail me catalogs where I can buy an armalite or its equivalent with a kit to make it full automatic. Who knows where they get my name. Who needs an "illegal" gun?
(3) On the other hand, that part about Lockheed at the beginning did bother me. Aside from whether they were really making weapons, it's a long stretch to associate Lockheed with the shootings.
