great doc. that states a point and states it well.
20 April 2011 | by (London Ontario) – See all my reviews

This documentary film has but one agenda - to get across that gun laws are too lax in the US. And it does, with flying colours. Watching it, I felt lucky to live in Canada, where, per capita, we have a fraction of the violence. Is it bias? I guess, yes, in the same way Apocalypse Now is bias in stating the Vietnam War was horrible. Or that stating Hitler was evil is Propaganda. This is an intelligent, thought provoking doc. that gets it's point across very well. Was it unbiased? No, but It's a doc that wants to see change happen, and tip towing around the gun control issue, would have no effect. Excellent documentary, worth a long discussion afterwards.
