Schlockumentary filmmaker Michael Moore isn't pleased with the level of outrage or support for stronger gun control following December's massacre in Newtown, Connecticut.
To gin this up further, he wants someone to release the pictures of the slaughtered children:
I believe someone in Newtown, Connecticut a grieving parent, an upset law enforcement officer, a citizen who has seen enough of this carnage in our country somebody, someday soon, is going to leak the crime scene photos of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. And when the American people see what bullets from an assault rifle fired at close range do to a little child's body, that's the day the jig will be up for the NRA. It will be the day the debate on gun control will come to an end. There will be nothing left to argue over. It will just be over. And every sane American will demand action. Moore discussed what such pictures might look like:
The six-year and seven-year-old children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School were each hit up to eleven times by a Bushmaster AR-15 semi-automatic rifle. The muzzle velocity of a rifle like the AR-15 is about three times that of a handgun. And because the kinetic energy of a bullet equals one-half of the bullet's mass multiplied by its velocity squared, the potential destructive power of a bullet fired from a rifle is about nine times more than that of a similar bullet fired from a handgun. Nine times more. I spoke to Dr. Victor Weedn, chairman of the Department of Forensic Sciences at George Washington University, who told me that chest x-rays of a person shot with a rifle will often look like a "snowstorm" because their bones will have been shattered into fragments.

The “jig”, as Moore puts it, would be up for the Democrats if the media accurately reported on who’s doing the killing in America, how many murders aren’t solved, plea deals and flat out not even being charged.
And then they want to take OUR firearms away?
I agree and would like to see a forensic report on what type of bullets were recovered ?? The first responders said they found an AR-15 in the trunk of the guys car and that he used two 9MM pistols but then the media reports the people were shot with an AR-15 assault rifle!! Who do you believe, the first responders or the media?
They should post pictures of Moore’s liver.
Moore-on, 3000 aborted every day. Let’s see the pictures, FAT ASS!
MA Senate candidate (for Kerry’s seat) Ed Markey (D) has his first ad (for primary) running and it immediately shows him as a gun grabber. Starts off with former NRA head Charlton Heston holding up a rifle and doing the “from my cold dead, hands bit”. The general idea is vote for Markey and we’ll take away the guns from those Neanderthals who worship guns and ammo.
>>The 30-second spot opened with footage of the late Charlton Heston, who once served as the group’s spokesman and president.
The ad featured the conclusion of Heston’s 2000 NRA convention speech, in which he belted-out the famous quote: “From my cold, dead hands.” (The clause is a shortened version of the slogan popularized by the NRA: “I’ll give you my gun when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.”)
In the ad, the narrator says the NRA has “been called the most powerful lobby in America, but that didn’t stop Ed Markey.”
The narrator adds that “long before tragedy swept our nation”highlighting a newspaper article about the Newton elementary school shootingMarkey worked to fight against assault weapons coming from China.
“Now Ed Markey is joining President Obama, fighting for tougher gun laws to make our community safe,” the narrator continued.
I’d rather see all of 0bama’s university transcripts/records.
There continues to be a lot of misinformation about Newtown. The AR-15 was used by the murderer in the school, per the Medical Examiner’s comments. Lanza committed suicide with one of the 2 handguns he was carrying. The “rifle” recovered from the trunk of the car was the Saiga 12 shotgun. The Saiga has a very similar appearance to the AR-15, which spawned a lot of confusion. Check an image, on-line, to confirm.
I do believe that you’ve caught the proper spirit of the campaign ... now we just await the - cringe - photos. As Colonel Kurtz said at the end of Apocalypse Now, “The horror ... the horror ...”
All I heard about was one or two funerals for the murdered children and one or two adults.
Why weren’t more publicized? Were there actually any more than that?
I would love to see someone knock him off!!
Or pics of his favorite middle eastern cult slicing normal peoples’ heads off?
release the videos of adam lanza attempting to buy guns. release video of adam lanza arguing w teachers day before. release videos of adam lanza entering school. release adam lanzas driver license picture. why does his death certificate show 12/13 as date of death.
My great hope is Michael Moore will someday have the massive stroke he so richly deserves.
I would be very much more interested in the Death Certificates.....along with Osama’s.
Watch the 5 minute YouTube video “Democide: Socialism, Tyranny, Guns and Freedom.”
You will see a film showing just a few of the 20,000 Poles murdered by the Soviets in April 1940 at the Katyn Forest.
And they were just a sliver of the 200 MILLION innocents murdered by socialist tyrants in the 20th century.
In every case, the tyrants first disarmed their future victims in the name of “public safety.” Every time, beginning with “reasonable and commonsense” gun registration.
1. Registration 2. Confiscation 3. Extermination
Methinks MM should be fitted with a blindfold and a last cigarette (or more fittingly a last Double Whopper with extra cheese and extra mayo). But nobody asks me.
I like your idea better than mine.
