Okay now everyone take a deep breath and let it out slow.Good. Now go rent the movie again, try to watch it without holding your AK and instead go in unopinionated and then come back and tell me what you think.

And I'm guessing that the only way to go in "unopinionated" is to go in thinking exactly the way you do, correct? Most people are going to believe whatever fits their own personal agenda, yourself included, so I would suggest you hop on down off your high horse there.

Right, and we Irish never had/have an affinity for firearms - please.

Bowling for Columbine is an excellent film to base your opinions on. Why not? It's one film, written by one man who takes facts and adds his own opinions on them. It obviously portrays an entire country! That's right, one money making, sensationalised, opinion piece is obviously an excellent source to use to make a broad sweeping generality about an entire country and the people that reside within it.

Ridiculous.

Redneck, using the term High horse is kinda funny when your avatar is a man on a high horse but i digress

And yes by UN opinionated I mean share my opinion right? NO. Thats the exact opposite of what I just said. I like guns. I dont own any but I like em anyway. Does that mean I belive anyone should be able to own any type of gun then want, no. I belive there should be restrictions on the guns we get but thats my opinion and not what I asked all of you to do. Im simple asking for everyone to look at the movie rationally and objectively instead of going in with one stedfast opinion already set in place.

You certainly had a funny way of saying it, chief.

As far as the movie goes, if you want the facts, there are a lot of other places to get them without watching Moore troll around looking down his nose at the world, as well as get the facts free of his more lofty flights of imagination.

The AK thing was a joke, I figured people here were mature enough to tell the difference between a joke and me saying somthing for real.

Ok, get back in the general area of the subject.

Word to the wise, speaking down to people generally does not amuse them. Michael Moore also suffers from this delusion.

Better watch that over confident arrogant attitude there, hero. Instead of attempting to insult others, next time state your opinion as it is. Trying to denigrate others opinions and view points does nothing for your cause nor your agenda, and it only makes you and your argument look weak.

You may find it to be surprising, but not everyone gets their information spoon fed to them by propaganda films such as "Bowling For Columbine," or the various other films that make it to the theatre with nothing more than a profit in mind.
