“In the next few days, who will declare on this network or any other network, ‘It’s time to eliminate the Second Amendment?'” Today, Michael Moore posed the question to Chris Hayes of MSNBC.
He envisioned Americans saying, “Oh, you can’t say that.”
Moore wondered aloud, “Why not?”
As the nation was still grieving from yesterday’s school massacre in Uvalde, Texas, in which 19 children and two adults were slaughtered, the Oscar-winning director of Bowling for Columbine raised the question.
“Listen, I am in favor of all gun control laws. Not a rational approach to gun control. The rational stuff isn’t required. He stated, “We need the serious stuff to protect ourselves and our children.”
“We refuse to admit that we are a violent people in the first place.” This country was born in bloodshed, with aboriginal peoples being slaughtered at the point of a gun. This country was created on the backs of slaves who were armed with a pistol… He told Hayes, “We don’t want to admit our two original sins here that have a gun behind our potential to become who we became.”

“I honestly believe that if Jefferson, Madison, and Washington had known that the bullet would be invented 50 years after our revolution, they would not have written it that way.” They had no idea what a bullet was. It was not invented until the 1830s. You have to believe that the country’s founders would not support it if they had any inkling that such devastation would occur.”
