    I still wouldn't push moore's videos. If he gets something decent every now and then you are still ultimately supporting a speaker that will encourage strict gun laws.

    I agree with others here who dont look to 'celebrity' opinions.

    Unfortunately, many people in this country today do look to them. They consider themselves 'with it' (or whatever the current terminology is) when they are only trying to follow the herd.

    Its sad, but true.

    We hear a lot about drugs and violent video games, movies, and TV shows. But...

    Hollywood, the video inductry, and the big drug companies contributed billions to the Democratic party and the Obama campaign.

    The NRA and gun owners contributed nothing.

    Guess who Obama wants to destroy.

    I too am cautious of Moore's (or anyone’s delivery) on a topic. I ran into a related on story on YouTube right after his video.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=UDlH9sV0lHU

    It is about psychotropic drugs’ effects and side-effects on the population. I watched the whole thing and it covered how we’re just test subjects ... bla bla bla. It's an hour and 43 minutes long. The part past the one hour mark (yes, one can fast forward), could be considered the condensed version.

    Psyche doctors want mandatory mental health screenings. My take is that the screenings will result in commitment and lifelong loss of firearms. They’ll start with what they consider "at risk groups" like veterans and seniors. The video also alluded to that as much as 50% of population may be “at risk” of mental illness. In the first hour, they discuss how they “create patients”; so 50% does not surprise me. So, that’s half of the U.S. that should be treated for mental illness and of course should not own firearms”? [Not that psychotropic medications cause suicidal or homicidal actions.]

    In this day in age when many want a new law passed to specifically address every tragedy, the root cause the event took place in the first place will continue or get worse.

    As we saw in his "Bowling for Columbine," Michael Moore is a ---deleted--- an anti-gun zealot.

    Whether or not he's right about drugs making kids whack out, I wouldn't throw my lot in with him in a trillion years.

    Colonel - not throwing our lot in with him, just using his own words to our advantage.

    Like internet judo. :D

    Because I do not think Michael Moore should have the clout to influence the views of our weak minded politicians or citizens, you pretend to know what will or will not affect my views?

    As my 12 year old niece would add, just sayin.

    B4 everyone dog piles on the schools.... just keep in mind that some of these kids receive absolutely p!$$ poor parenting and have never heard the word "no" in there lives. Then at age 5 the "parents" outsource the rearing of their kids to a public school environment where the means of effective discipline are verboten, either by philosophical bent, or by statute.

    Add to the mix that the school will receive Federal funds if they get the kids coded, and you have a perfect storm of dysfunction.

    One has to wonder if our nation has become accursed... and is now fully reaping what it has long sewn.

    Note that the video is NOT Michael Moore's video. He did not make it. He was interviewed for it, one of many people who were interviewed for the video. The people who DID make the video are not exactly what you might call down-to-earth, so I'd be careful about using this video by itself as evidence.

    Good point, Apuuli. Anyhow, enough non-legal chit-chat.
