Appearing on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show, liberal filmmaker Michael Moore expressed his bewilderment as to why the United States is such a “violent” country and wondered aloud why anyone would want to own a gun. According to Moore, people only own guns because they’re racist and “afraid” of “people of color.”

The more of us solid citizens that own guns, the more careful the gov't is about taking away our liberties. Gun rights is our protection from the government, as well as protection from 'the bad guys' who come in all sorts of shapes and colors.

Anyway Michael Moore should seriously consider carrying a gun for himself given the edxtreme dislike of the man. I am left of centre and find his comment stupid.

also guns are often seen as cool in american films(this is true in other nations films and tv aswell, just not to such an extent.) and killing is often glamourised.
