Bowling for Columbine is telling us how easy there is to get hold on weapons in USA and how much violence they have compeare to others countries. Michael Moore is asking why USA has so much violence and what can be done to reduce the crime.
The film starts with Michael is in a bank to open a bank account, and when he has filled out a healthcertification he got a rifle. The ironi here is that he got a rifle from a bank. Everybody knows that they are exposed for bank robbery.
The film shows us that some people are joining illegal groups like the NRA –national rifle assosiation and they think that they have all the right to protect themselves by taking the laws in their own hands. Their motto is “defend your self “. We see that theese people have normal jobs, but they don’t trust the system in USA.
We also see the tragedy of the Columbine high school, when two students are starting shooting inside the school and “terrorising” the students. One girl told that she saw a girl was beeing shot in her head right before her eyes and one boy was killed just because he was black. The result of this tragedy was that 12 students and 1 teacher were killed and it ends with that they are killing themselves.
