History has proved this movie false
12 May 2006 | by swest-15See all my reviews

Since this movie was made, the majority of states have passed right to carry legislation and more people than ever now carry firearms. What is the result??? Crime continues to go down. Anti-gunners again missed their mark and history once again proves that firearms in the hands of citizens protect liberty and freedom as well as preventing crimes.

This movie was a typical example of the efforts of anti-gun leaning activists attempting to scare the non-gun owning public from gun owners. The idea that law abiding Americans will suddenly start killing each other in mass numbers just because they own a firearm is absurd. States with the highest percentage of gun ownership has the lowest amount of violent crime. Areas of the U.S. with very strict gun control laws (like New York, Washington DC, Maryland, Illinois, California) has the highest percentages of violent crime.
