Controversial filmmaker Michael Moore is passionate about gun control. He made the documentary Bowling For Columbine” shortly after the tragic massacre at Columbine High School in Colorado. Now, a week after another tragic shooting, the filmmaker is pleading with President Obama to do something about the gun issue in the United States.
“If people would just rise up and say ‘Damn it, this is not the America I’m going to live in. This is too great of a country to let this happen again. I am not going to let this happen again… And I am not going to come on another one of these damn TV shows either, after the next one of these shootings, Piers… I’m sick of this. I refuse it. I refuse to live in a country like this, as I said before, and, I’m not leaving. So therefore, what am I going to do? It’s got to change.”
Moore also criticized the President for not doing more about gun control in the United States after another tragic shooting. Moore pointed to the President’s speech last week when he said that his daughters go to the movies and it could have been them in the theater.
“What if it were them? Would you stand at the microphone the next day and say I feel your pain and, you know, the existing gun laws, that’s what he said, the existing laws are enough. Is that really what you’d say, Mr. President? I don’t think so.”
