Good movie, but he shouldn't have made the Oscar acceptance speech that he made! Also, he shouldn't have pestered Charlton Heston like that! I don't agree with the "cold dead fingers" thing either, but the man deserved some privacy!

Don't bother wasting your time...
Very inaccurate, unreferenced. Those here who think: "guns easily available" need rewatch the free gun for new account part--it is Not instant or that easy Nor can "just anyone" qualify. Federal/State/Local laws still apply. He/She should Try It. Go to a dealer--see? Private sales are banned in most states, even Arizona has some catches, and almost banned them, too.
The ending where he tries to "blame" gun violence n the NRA and its peaceful president, Chuck Heston, is ludicrous, unfounded, indolent, and illogical.
Moore is counter-productive here, he does not link the Columbine bullying tragedy with any common sense. There are 20,000 gun laws out there; 20,001 will not stop the determined.
Murder has been illegal 5,000 years. So, do more laws against it stop anyone?
MM needs be held more responsible and show statistics--he can't of course, they would only prove him wrong. He should be banned from producing what is supposed to be: "non-fiction" when it is only disjointed, non-sequiturs of opinion with a nebulous conclusion.
Even if I were a : "gun-hater", common sense would tell me the same about this piece which only served to damage the leftist liberals' anti-gun platform with idiocy. Makes as much sense as Obama denying radicalized Muslims behind San Berdoo violence and crying about : "preponderance of weapons", when he Needed cry about the Victims. See how O and his ex-Black Panther senators, who were imprisoned For gun misconduct, ruined Illinois and made self defense a Crime; and how he attempted to ruin the entire country.

Michael Moore's movie is fraught with inaccuracy, ouright lies, & arguments void of logic.

You get an interesting look into violence in America, and how guns are so easily accessible.

Two weeks ago, at the Washington premiere, Moore sat a few rows behind Daschle. Afterward, says Moore, "he gave me a hug and said he felt bad and that we were all gonna fight from now on. I thanked him for being a good sport." (Time Magazine, 7/04) - DASCHLE DENIES HUGGING MOORE (Headline, Rapid City Journal, 7/04)

My pollster friend told me that he believes if Kerry wins, "Fahrenheit 9/11" will be one of the top three reasons for his election. (A few days before the 2004 election) @ Mike's Letter on 9/6/04 @
