RT @THuff7 how long did all that research take?
The film took a little over three years to make. The research was ongoing during that entire time.
No. A couple years after we filmed that interview he came down sadly with Alzheimer's so we never got to speak again.
My answer:there were two armed guards at Columbine the day of the massacre. At Fort Hood massacre I think there was lots of army w/ guns.
I believe I've been excommunicated. The reason I joined was my original idea for the film was to run against Heston for NRA president.
Because Canadian society is structured very different from ours. They make sure everyone has medical help. They don't invade countries, etc
Stricter gun laws will reduce some but until we deal with our national mindset that condones violence (war, death penalty, etc) no change
Nothing, really. I was literally stunned when they came out and made that announcement. I thought, wow, this camera has special powers!
Canada. That's my answer for pretty much everything except pipelines and baby seals. They also vote with a pencil and piece of paper. Duh.
RT @kelsey_davey watching the movie with dad. i cant believe this footage and the 911 calls. please don't make a movie for Newton.
If the public could see what a .223 bullet from a Bushmaster does to a 6 yr old face or body, the gun debate would b over & the NRA finished
RT @MMFlint why is the U.S. the only country on the planet with this irrational fear that everyone must be armed?
I think it has something to do with the guns we used to commit genocide on the Indians and then enslave black ppl to do our work.
Sadly, it's been proven to be all too true. Aurora, Ft Hood, Tucson, Virginia Tech, etc etc. Massacre after massacre.
Well, you hit the home run tonight. Those are the basic tenets of Capitalism -- & the NRA/gun industry employ them well
RT @motostache why are none of the American massacres labeled terrorist attacks? Or is it only applicable if done by a brown person?
Well! Why on earth would you think that?
RT @aharbo What is the significance of the white male mass killer and why has this been ignored by media?
The media will never say this: "white men r running rampant with guns". Or refer to Newtown as "white on white crime". Racism alive & well.
He might be the smartest person in the movie. An amazing guy.
Canadian kids watch the same violent movies and play the same violent video games. So why aren't they shooing each other on a weekly basis?
RT @JillHelser was the cartoon done by the South Park guys? It is brilliant in its simplicity and powerful commentary
No, my team and I made the cartoon, led by Harold Moss.
Nope. After getting perm to film u see me walking in there for 1st time. I opened a real account. They did bkgrnd check & I was handed gun.
RT @BradJConnolly With debate raging back and forth maybe it's time for a national referendum. Oh wait, I'm in Canada. Sorry! Good luck!
Don't rub it in. And how come not a single person in Canada last yr went bankrupt over medical bills? Losers!
Not a single thing. I am very proud of this film & sad that it's still relevant. I'm grateful it won the Oscar & set a box office record.
RT @erachh It's amazing to me how the same argument that Michael Moore makes still holds up today 10 years later
Well, that's pretty sad, isn't it? This will only change if each and every one of you get active now.
I still have it! Been waiting for the right time to auction it off for charity or a cause. Maybe now is that time.
The amount of violent threats leveled at me. Winning the Oscar only made that worse. And Bush was starting the Iraq War. More killing. USA!
RT @hectorkatz any interest in the film returning to theaters anywhere?
Wouldn't that be great. I would see that 100% of profits would go to anti gun/violence efforts.
Don't give up on us.
I favor repealing the 2nd amendment. We repealed the Prohibition amendment. The 2nd amendment is not relevant today unless u use a musket.
Yes!The crew &I were on our way to the airport to leave LA and Megan O'Hara the field producer shouted Let's get a Star Map & go find Heston
Yes. It's the in the first chapter of my latest book, Here Comes Trouble. You can read it for free on my site.
I made BFC 4 no pay. I gave back all my salary to finish it. I've made $0 profit. Tho I believe the studio owes me, I've never seen a dime.
I've never had a security guy w/ a gun arrested at an airport. The man in question was working for Arnold Schwartzeneger
Don't worry about me! I was living fine at that time off the royalties from my book Stupid White Men (it was selling over 3 million copies!)
He was a sound design genius and a victim of gun violence and is missed by many in this business. Hope you're doing well! God bless.
Because in Windsor u lack our unique mix of fear, racism, extreme poverty, and an ongoing history of solving our problems w/ violence.
Canadians r taught from birth to live by the attitude of "we." In the US, we r taught "me, me, me." Every man for himself! It is our undoing
No. When we filmed him he was moving slow because he'd recently had hip surgery. We shot that 2 yrs before he had Alzheimer's. R.I.P.
