Filmmaker, author, and political activist Michael Moore examines America’s obsession with guns and violence in his third feature-length documentary, the Oscar-winning "Bowling for Columbine," which gets its title from a pair of loosely related incidents.

On April 20, 1999, shortly before they began their infamous killing spree at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold attended their favorite class, a no-credit bowling course held at a bowling alley near the school, the same bowling alley which would become the scene of a robbery and triple homicide two years later.

Moore skillfully lays out arguments surrounding the issue and short-circuits them all, leaving one impossible question: why do Americans kill each other more often than people in any other democratic nation?

Moore focuses his quest around the shootings at Columbine High School and the shooting of one 6-year-old by another near his own hometown of Flint, Michigan.

Many thanks for this film, and continuing to ask the tough questions on violence in America, to Michael Moore.
