Michael Moore: The NRA
hates freedom

Washington Examiner [DC], by Charlie Spiering

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/14/2012 7:22:17 PM

Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore lashed out at the National Rifle Association this afternoon after news broke about the horrific shooting in Connecticut. “The NRA hates freedom,” he wrote on Twitter. “They don’t want you to have the freedom to send your children to school & expect them to come home alive.” Moore insisted earlier that it was important for gun control proponents to discuss the issue – especially during times of tragedy. “The way to honor these dead children is to demand strict gun control, free mental health care,

We already have strict gun control laws.

Chicago has some of the toughest, and look at the slaughter each week (worse than Afghanistan).

Free mental health care, sure, but remember the liberal ACLU sued to close most of the state hospitals (the one´s that Obamacare folks now believe will be better now).

Mental health care used to be free. They just locked the nuts up in asylums paid for by public taxes. But the lib democ rats demanded most of the patients be released to their families, who then threw them out as soon as they could. You can now find them sleeping on the streets of major cities. At least Moore doesn´t have to worry about being shot. Bullets would never penetrate the fat.

The propagandist is right in a way. The NRA DOES hate it when urban mayors plea bargain gun crime away instead of prosecuting the criminals who destroy the lives of innocents. The NRA has worked in some cities to implement Project Exile which is harsher on criminals than Mr. Moore and all the networks combined. Exile has actually done something about gun crime instead of trolling through the media sewer in order to profit on the misery of victims.

Here´s something. Let´s add greater controls over access to violent movies, TV shows, video games and other crap that people like Michael Moore produce and profit from. Let´s tax these ´products´ at the state, local and federal level like cigarettes, ammunition or fossil fuels. It´s time Hollywood and pays ITS fair share for contributing to these horrific events.

Gun Control is a theory espoused by some monumentally stupid people; who claim to believe, against all logic and common sense, that a violent predator who ignores the laws prohibiting them from robbing, raping, kidnapping, torturing and killing their fellow human beings will obey a law telling them that they cannot own a gun.

Michael Moore is a idiot who says these outrageous things to see his name in the paper. I´m sure he has already started writing the movie script with dollar signs dancing in his head.

Why don´t the pro-gun control people ever try to understand first why pro-gun people disagree with them? Namely, because the Founders did not trust the government to be the only ones with guns, and advised us we would be better off suffering the dangers of being an armed population rather than the dangers of being an unarmed one.

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans.

His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that
