How to Win the Gun Control Debate by Michael Moore


Filmmaker Michael Moore believes that if photos from December’s Newtown massacre are released, then the National Rifle Association will be finished.

While not explicitly calling for the photos to be published, Moore said on his blog Wednesday that the photos will likely be made public at one point or another. Once they do, Moore said, “it will be the day the debate on gun control will come to an end.”

“How on earth could anyone not spring into action the very next moment after seeing the bullet-riddled bodies of these little boys and girls?” Moore wrote.

The director of the pro-gun control documentary “Bowling for Columbine” compared the photo’s potential release to the Emmett Till photos in the lead-up to the civil rights movement and photographs of the My Lai massacre during the Vietnam war, both of which shifted the national conversation on controversial issues.


  1. What's that term? Oh, yes: blood-dancing. But this idea will be as successful as all of Moore's other notions.

  2. Mr. Moore, did the My Lai massacre and the intervention in Vietnam stop the US military from bombing, invading and occupying any other place on Earth whenever to hell it felt like it?
    Fortunately, the good people of Vietnam were armed and were able to kick the ass of the mightiest military on the planet and send them home with their tail between their legs, just like the armed citizens of Afghanistan are currently doing.

  3. Michael Moore's wish clearly demonstrates the Progressive mindset: anything goes as long as you have good (as the Progressives define good) intentions.

    Do the families of the victims want to maintain their right to privacy? The answer doesn't matter to Progressives ... they will trample anything, anyone, any right to achieve their objective.

    If someone releases those photos, I guarantee "journalists" will be shoving the photos in front of surviving family members and asking for their reactions while cameras roll. It is a sick idea.

    No thank you.
