BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE
Michael Moore's 2002 BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE examined the reasons for America's phenomena of gun murders. Other countries have similar histories of violence, our gun movies are seen all over the world, and even a well-armed Canada has only a fraction of the murders that occur in its southern neighbor.
Last year Detroit had 298 murders.
Across the river Windsor, Ontario had none.
Michael Moore suggests the cause is not the culture, the murders on TV, the hideous gun movies, the mass killings on video games or even the access to guns.
"It's the fear."
America the Land of the Freaked.
Where even the shadows are scared of the shadow-givers.
ps Charlton Heston is dead, so we can rip the gun out of his dead hands.
