I figured that made it clear that I was stating an opinion. And the proof for my opinion is because I said so.

My reasoning is that the political motivation behind Moore's work is so blatant (the guy has links to left wing petitions from his movie's website, www.bowlingforcolumbine.com ), that it removes any veil of legitimacy from his film as far as it being a documentary. I am not a cinematographic expert of any sort and am unsure of what may or may not be considered a "documentary" by the film world, but in my OPINION for something to be considered in that class of films, it must be as free as possible from a political slant and responsibly made (something that does not include trying to make a fool of an old man with Alzheimer's (Charlton Heston), among many other things).

Nice try though, 1217.

This site has some solid sources backing some of their claims, and some of it is simply opinion. It is worth a read if you're interested in the movie, if nothing else.

Sometimes when dealing with a moore type film...you have to take them with a grain of salt. My dad calls his films "mockumentorys" instead of documentorys. This the same man who made a film about exposing the car industry.

I'm a strong believer that kids should not own guns, you hear too many horror stories on the news about "accidental shootings" no offence to anyone this is my opinion only, but kids are just not mature enough to handle guns, guns should not even be stored in the home anywhere near children, if they are part of a shooting club or under adult supervision thats fine but i don't think they have any business owning one.
