5.0 out of 5 stars I paid for my friends to see this film March 7 2003
Format:DVD
I have seen this film three times in theatres and will be buying the widescreen DVD.
This film is not pro or anti guns. Instead this film looks at the reasons why America uses guns to kill each other with a frequency unmatched anywhere else in the world.
This film is not anti-NRA, Moore actually supports the NRA's mission of teaching gun safety and responsible gun ownership. This film does leave the viewer horrified at the NRA's repeated decision to roll NRA President Heston out to any community grieving after a senseless gun tradgedy to intone his famous line, "From my cold dead hands" as he holds a long weapon aloft.
Moore asks the viewer to consider possible root causes for the extraordinary degree of gun violence, and suggests that America has developed a culture of fear (and violence) that lends itself to the overly quick reaching for a gun.
I grew up hunting deer and pigs, owned several rifles, and support the second ammendment and the less malignant actions of the NRA.
That said, I think the second ammendment was written over 200 years ago and perhaps should itself be ammended. Further, I can not condone the reprehensibly insensitive and agressively pain inducing actions of the NRA and Heston.
I most strongly recommend this movie to everyone; I bought tickets for my friends so they could see this amazing film in the theatres.

By A Customer
Format:DVD
This is one of the most thoughtful movies I have ever seen. For all those that blither on about gun control - you have missed the whole point of the movie.
Moore tries to understand what is at the root of our Country's level of violence. He concludes Gun Ownership, itself, is NOT!
First off, go to the World Health Organization and look up "homicide rates United States" and the second article shows -

"Homicide rates for Japan, the United States and Brazil are respectively 0.6, 7 and 25 per 100 000 population. Firearm death rates in Asia are almost 100 times lower than in the Americas. 'We need to learn from these cross-cultural differences. Such insight could help in prevention and response,' added Dr Krug"
Moore unravels a fascinating thread which reveals America's morbid fascination with fear. He presents his theory of where this fear originated. How it is fueled by mistrust, the media, intolerance, ignorance, greed, and public policy.
Some of his statistics are presented without much detailed explaination (ie Per Captia) making them more sensational than useful but overall he will stun you with his observations of what is causing us to fear each other and so willing to react with violence whereas very similar people with roughly the same set of conditions (our Canadian neighbors) do not.
Yes, the NRA, and Charleton Heston are made to look bad. But if your daughter or son, friend, relative, had been killed by soemone using firearms and you saw Heston touting the NRA in the neighborhood (Columbine, Flint MI) a few days later wouldn't you be outraged too? Moore, who is a member of the NRA and an avid gun owner, sure was.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant social commentary... Feb. 13 2003
Format:DVD
I believe the reviewer from NZ missed the message behind this film. The main message is not about guns at all, Moore is trying to show that the cause behind a lot of what's wrong with the US is the 'culture of fear'. He just uses the events at Columbine and Oklahoma City as a stage to illustrate his argument. This message is best conveyed during the interesting clip with Marylin Manson.
The film is thoroughly amusing, and dismally frightening at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars See this movie Feb. 27 2003
By Pk1305
Format:DVD
This is an incredible and powerful movie - one that many reviewers missed the point of entirely. For example the idiot who blames violence on ethnic minorities, which Michael Moore addressed in regards to Canada, something our hateful friend forgot to mention, which has a significant minority population and still significantly lower crime rates. It examines the origins and nature of our violent society, and was much more anti-violence than anti-gun. I never even got the impression he wanted guns banned, he showed that guns in places like Canada don't cause the same level of violence, he just wants people to THINK about how our society ended up being so full of fear, hate and violence. This is a must-see movie if you ever truly thought about issues like gun control and more importantly if you haven't. I have never liked guns and always advocated for stricter control, but after seeing this movie, and thinking about the issues he pointed out it is easy to see that our culture, not our guns, are what really puts us in danger from each other. I still think guns should be at least as controlled as a car, but I no longer think that it would solve half as many problems. See the movie, listen to the message and think about it!

5.0 out of 5 stars loved it Feb. 26 2003
Format:DVD
I am from Germany! My teacher took us to this documentary and we first thought : oh no! We have no time for it!
Everybody loved it! `Cause:
Michael Moore shows exactly what we think about Americans!
This film shows the stupidity of NRA members (represented by Heston) and how far from reality they are!
Not to mention the part where Heston says that the American history was more violent than the German!
And those who say that the facts given in the movie are [bad]!
Think about it again...Most of the facts Moore mentions are right and informative!...
