Out of the Blue

Here's an unpleasant anniversary I ran across while doing a bit of poking around in the archive: Yesterday was the fourth anniversary of the school shootings in Columbine High School, which took place on April 20, 1999. :(

>do you know how many laws they broke to get those weapons and commit that terrible crime?

They obviously wern't being enforced that well if they could break 19 laws and not get caught. The fact of the matter is that if I wanted to lay my hands on a handgun I have absolutely no idea where I could. Its not a matter of breaking laws, its about availability. I`d only have to break one law to be in possession of a handgun. its what that law IS thats important, not how many i have to break..

>You're still more than 3 times as likely to be killed by lightning as you are by school violence.

what about gun crime in general?

>Heston did not say all those things that Moore made it appear that he said. Moore spliced his words together to create completely different statements in some cases.

so he did say them. he just didn`t necissarily say them in the context of which they were presented. he still said them. That was my point. The film still dealt with documented footage. Footage which was edited to present an argument, but real footage none the less. My point was that this is no different from what FOX and CNN have been doing for years now. "libaray" footage gets used a hell of a lot when you`re trying to proove a point.

>Nobody likes a liar.

two thirds of Americans don't, but he's still your president

Look, i`m not anti-american. I'm not pro michael moore. I appluad that he does do the things he does, not necissarily how he does them. but its better that there is a dissenting voice than none at all. Personally, I`m anti gun, anti war and anti bush. But i also live in a country where i have no ability to do anything about those things. I can't own a gun, have never held a gun or could get one if I wanted to. I protested against this war, not becuase I don't think Saddam is a bad man, because the politics of this war are wrong. But i didn`t vote for Bush, I couldn't vote against him becuase I`m not an American - yet he dictates my foriegn policy, since my Prime Minister is too tied up in big business to think for a fraction of a second about domestic issues. These are scary times, and for anyone to challenge these things is a Good Thing. Democracy only works if all voices are aired.

For going WAY off topic I appologise.
