Forbes and SpinSanity point out errors in M. Moore's movie Bowling for Columbine. SpinSanity agrees that the movie is not really pro-gun-control, as you'd expect, but a confusing mix of gripes about how the USA is not sufficiently leftist.

Here is another critic trying to make sense of the Movie:
Roughly put, Moore's argument is that because Canada has as many guns as we do, our gun violence problem can't be blamed on the accessibility of guns. The cause must lie elsewhere, and Moore points his finger at a sensationalist news media feeding a culture of violence and paranoia. In other words, Canadians and Americans both have guns, it's just that Americans are so scared of each other that we actually use them.

He goes on to explain how erroneous and incoherent Moore's movies are.
