Michael Moore on Gun Control and Tyranny

Over on TTAG they think there's a big inconsistency in what Michael Moore says. Do you?


  1. It's the flipside of conservatives who want to keep and protect their second amendment rights but had and have no problem with the Patriot Act and extrajudicial killings.

    Both mirror images are born of the same thing--a failure to see the value of all rights and a failure to protect all rights equally.

  2. He acknowledges that we're on the first steps down the road to tyranny. The fact that he can't see gun control as a part of this is irrelevant to the main point. Regardless of any specific element, taking government action as a whole, the direction is clear.

  3. Yesterday we read that it is legal for drones to assassinate American citizens sitting in their home watching TV or changing a diaper.
    The day before that we read that DHS is going to have more than 2,700 light-armored tanks roaming the streets and neighborhoods of American cities.
    Before that we heard of the purchase of 1.6 billion bullets by DHS.
    In the meantime, the firing ranges targets have gone from a bulls-eye to pictures of pregnant women, children, seniors, and every other average American citizen, in order to acclimate and condition the shooters to willingly and willfully shoot unarmed citizens.

    I'm sure that the recent push and rush to legislate gun control is merely a coincidence.

  4. MIchael Moore: "Gun control is not tyranny."

    Hmm . . . do you suppose his bodyguard would agree?

    Filmmaker Michael Moore's . . . bodyguard was arrested for carrying an unlicensed weapon in New York's JFK airport Wednesday night.

    Police took Patrick Burke, who says Moore employs him, into custody after he declared he was carrying a firearm at a ticket counter. Burke is licensed to carry a firearm in Florida and California, but not in New York. Burke was taken to Queens central booking and could potentially be charged with a felony for the incident.

    Moore's 2003 Oscar-winning film "Bowling for Columbine" criticizes what Moore calls America's "culture of fear" and its obsession with guns.

    I have two words for this: "Throwthe," and "bookathim."

    Actually, maybe they should look into the possibility of charging Moore himself with conspiracy, if he can be proved to have known his hired muscle was packing, and approved of the fact.

    1. I don't know why you guys are so hung up on the body guard thing. Unless Michael Moore says no one, not even police and licensed security people should be armed, there's no conflict here. It's just another example of you makiing shit up and repeating it as often as possible.

    2. I don't know why you guys are so hung up on the body guard thing.

      Well let me see if I can put it in terms so simple even you can understand. The vast majority of people cannot afford "licensed security people" to protect us (and we certainly cannot afford to pay them so well as to make the job worth the horrors that befall one caught running afoul of New York's draconian gun laws). We, therefore, are our own bodyguards. In his slobbering advocacy of laws that make that self-protection difficult or impossible, he is claiming that his wealth makes his life more valuable than the lives of the mere middle class.

      So your first example of me "making shit up and repeating it as often as possible" continues to elude you. You should be accustomed to that by now, and if you are not, should remedy that as quickly as possible.

    3. You think that by simply repeating what you've said many times before, EVEN I'll be able to understand it? Or did you just want to get that nasty remark in there?

      Celebrities and high-profile politicians, in some cases, actually need body guards. You don't, except in your imagination.
