Bowling for Columbine – Going in

There’s much controversy about this movie. Is it a documentary or Micheal Moore’s political soap box? Does Mr. Moore lie? Are his arguments persuasive?

I’m from a small town and therefore, I’m pro-gun by default. Individuals are responsible for themselves and we should trust them and allow them to protect themselves with firearms. Also, having grown up with guns, gun safety was integral to my upbringing. Arguments involving how scary guns are, won’t convince me.

Now, living in a suburb and having lived in a city, I can see the point of anti-gun arguments. How can you trust so many people to handle gun’s with care? How will Micheal get me around the ‘guns don’t kill people, people kill people’ argument?

Mostly, I’m persuaded by arguments that correlate gun ownership with the violence of the society. Is there a high correlation? Is it correlation or causation?
