Invite Some People Over to Your Home TONIGHT and Watch 'Bowling For Columbine' with Thousands of Your Fellow Americans!

This evening is going be a big moment in turning our country around on the issue of gun violence. That's why I desperately want you to be part of it! Please join me and thousands of others in a virtual grassroots nationwide townhall from your own living room.

Here's how it's going to work tonight:

First, right now, email or text two or six or twelve of your family members, friends, neighbors, classmates or co-workers. Invite them over to your house to a first-ever nationwide movie screening/live townhall on the issue of "No More Newtowns, No More Columbines." Tell them if they come, they are going to be able to say they were there on the night that began the demise of the late, great gun lobby in America. The night We, the People, took over and reduced the senseless gun violence gripping our nation. We have had ENOUGH!

Second, you'll need a TV or computer screen and an internet connection because we are all going to watch 'Bowling for Columbine' together! Ten years ago tonight, 'Bowling for Columbine' won the Academy Award – and I couldn't think of a better way to spend the anniversary of that crazy night than with all of you. And after the movie I will join you and thousands of other house gatherings in a live stream Q & A and panel discussion beamed straight from here in New York City right into your homes via The Internets.

Third, get the movie. You may already have a dvd. Or you can rent/buy one at your local video store today. Or better yet, you can stream the movie FOR FREE from Netflix. Even if you don't subscribe to Netflix, you can watch it for free tonight by clicking here and getting a free one-month membership. Our thanks to Netflix for making this happen. (There are also other ways to stream the movie.)

Fourth, make sure you have the best internet connection possible so that, after the movie, we can live stream the town hall Q & A into your home (and even the slowest internet connections will be able to just hear the audio).

Here's the rundown of how the evening will go:

(All times Eastern Daylight Savings time)

6:45 pm – Ask the people coming over because you need to start watching the movie at 7:00 pm sharp.

7:00 pm – Begin watching 'Bowling for Columbine'

9:00 pm – Movie ends. Go here at and click on the link that will then bring me live into your living room for the Q & A and panel discussion, direct from my "house party" in New York City. We will discuss concrete actions of what you can do. We will organize ourselves into one big mass movement, the likes of which Congress has never seen on this issue.

10:00 pm – Live townhall meeting is concluded and we'll all have our "marching orders"!

If you live in a different time zone, either join us live at the above ET times, or hold it whenever you want today/tonight. The important thing is that the townhall will take place live just once, at roughly 9:00 pm ET. So participate in that before, during or after you show the movie.

We will have specific things that you can do, starting tonight, that will force Congress to do the right thing when it comes to guns.

So call a few people up right now and invite them over. Tell them I'm having a party! At your house! And let's see if the will of the majority can finally win, once and for all.

See you tonight!

P.S. If you also want to join in on the 10th anniversary celebration of the film's Oscar, I haven't figured out how to pour champagne yet over the Internet yet, but you can begin the evening by showing the clip of the riot that went down when I gave my Oscar speech that night of March 23, 2003.
