Michael Moore on Guns

I am a member of the NRA. I am not a gun nut. I only have one gun – a Taurus .38, and I only go to the range a few times a year. But I support the NRA because I think people who use guns responsibly should be allowed to have guns. I also think I should be allowed to have one in case some psychopath breaks into my house, and I have to shoot him.

Well, today in the mail I got a card to let me vote for the NRA president. My choices are Charleton Heston, or Michael Moore. I knew it was tongue-in-cheek, but I was still surprised. Apparently Moore thinks he represents America's views on guns better than Charleton Heston. He is actually quoted as saying "After Columbine, I decided that I would run agains Charlton Heston for the presidency of the NRA."

Now, I don't despise Michael Moore as much as Rachel Lucas, but I am beginning to think that is only because I know so little about him. Statements like this show he is a true idiot. Blaming guns for Columbine is like blaming airplanes for 9-11. These same liberals who will let Saddam have WMD because we need to instead deal with the "root causes" of anti-Americanism think that law abiding citizens shouldn't have guns because there are no "root causes" for gun violence other than the existence of guns.
