Without getting political, what a waste of time. The sad part is that one of my buddies watched it and recommended it to me, the movie convinced him that those views are correct. IMHO it was completely one-sided and rediculous, I hope that someone else has the balls to produce a film showing the opposing point of views without stooping to Michael Moore's level. :|

Well, since it's P.C. to not figure people need to be responsible, it's gotta be the firearms that are evil.


I'm getting where the only movies I'll watch have NRA members in them.

I still haven't watched it, but when I feel the need to get real pissed off at the left, I will.

I thought it started out as a decent movie, clever and entertaining, but real quick he turned it into his soapbox. It then became hard to watch whether you agree with him or not. What was weird is that he really didnt even have a point he kept contradicting himself.

I've read some conservative reviews who were close to the project and they spoke about all the footage left out or twisted. There was one article (I think I read it on Worldnetdaily.com) about how his "Roger and Me" film where he did get an interview with the Ford executive but he never included it in the footage and made it seem like he was never granted an interview.

I do not mind left minded ideals but I dislike dishonesty (that goes for both sides).

My guns will never kill anybody !

You can bust into my house and take my stuff, I still won't shoot.
Average police dept reaction time in my town is 3.5 minutes, I can wait that long.

3.5 minutes? There could be a lot of bad hooey goin' on in that amount of time.

If you bust into my place, don't plan on getting back out.
