Please take a look at the Patriot Act section (it is not about the patriot act, but a recent interview between GW and some troops).

Last night I was probably the last person in the US to see Bowling for Columbine. It didnt seem to have a direction to it, and I can see why the guy pissed a lot of people off but some of the points he raised were just shocking

There are always 2 sides, especially when it comes to extremists. I'm not naive enough to believe everything the fat guy said (I'm not sure he knew what points he was trying to make anyway - first guns aren't bad, and then they are). I could see for myself that:
The NRA was insensitive
Charlton Heston is a t**t
People are stupid - demonizing a 6 year old when it was clearly the uncle's fault.
No one really stops to look at root causes, which he at least started before he got completely lost.
Oh, and I totally agreed with the "selling fear" thing.
