This is a discussion on Michael Moore on Adam Carolla Podcast back in September within the General Firearm Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; Originally Posted by Sturmruger I guess no one is actually listening to the interview.

It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.
If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.
Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to defeat the British, He shot them!
Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy." -- Ernest Benn
Well, here is a poster that actually listened to the linked show... All I heard was two mindless windbags, one of which is actually funny, the other is just a dog fart with a fat face. The dog fart wind bag simply traded the idea that guns were evil to the idea of Americans are evil. Not worthy of respect IMO. If he actually came out and grew a pair and said what the problem actually is with violence in our country, I might have agreed with the OP and gained a little respect. But no, it was just another flash of smelly, foul hot air.
"Just blame Sixto"
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
Because of his Columbine documentary which I swear is a great flick, especially if you despise him, because you get to watch him eat his own liberalism as he begins to realize the truth about firearms.I just can't figure out why he has had such a change of heart.
His "Guns don't kill people, Americans kill people" is of course a loaded statement. We have more people and guns than Canada and the UK, so more gun related violence is a given. That doesn't however change the fact that innocent, unarmed (read: disarmed) folks get the piss stabbed out of them all over South London though.
If anything, this gives me hope that the obnoxious extremists on both sides at least have the ability to gravitate towards the center for topics that matter. Heck I've heard Glenn Beck say a couple sane things.. at least once or twice.
Also, this should be the official "brashly revealing yourself as a libbie on a gun board" emoticon:

Michael Moore = Douche bag...
Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means, that you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you......
Michael Moore should start over.... with a brain this time!

Mods, should this post be judged as a bit much, do what is necessary, whatever that may be. I assure you, considerable restraint was shown.
I listened to it. I still don't like Moore. He's still a moron, just changed his message a little.
Fat, dumb and stupid is no way to go through life son.
A person who is willing to admit that they were wrong about something, that they are open to adjustments to their beliefs, can't be all that big of a turd. Not that I'd have a warm, snuggly moment with the guy...
"Historical examination of the right to bear arms, from English antecedents to the drafting of the Second Amendment, bears proof that the right to bear arms has consistently been, and should still be, construed as an individual right." -- U.S. District Judge Sam Cummings, Re: U.S. vs Emerson (1999)
In case anyone is wondering, I did listen to the whole show and to be honest with you all...I regret it.
If I had an "erase" button and a "playback" button in my brain, I would have hit both of them. The first to erase the content that I heard and the the playback to get me back to where I was before I killed some brain cells by listening to not one, but two idiots in the same room.
As for opening his thought process, he's playing to the crowd. He'll tell them what he thinks they want to hear...much like any politician and they are so smooth about it that they can make is seem real and genuine, when in fact they laugh at those that arent smart enough to realize that they can lie through their teeth and not lose a wink of sleep over it because that is what they do best.
I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

Well now I can say I very nearly tried to defend Mike Moore (of all obnoxious wackos), on a Gun Forum... and lived to tell about it!
I'll be honest I was scared there for a second.
