one sided mishmash
23 September 2014 | by cmeneken-1See all my reviews

A film that presents two sides: the pro gun side and a nebulous other side. Its historical account was written by pro gun types and its analysis is tilted that way from the beginning. No discussion about the gun industry, gun lobby, the Republican party goose stepping to the NRA, the defense industry, the American military industrial complex, the causes of our culture of violence, or any comparison with other countries--the great majority--that have little guns or gun violence. Really a horrible unbalanced film that says nothing. Also, it is unclear just who produced this documentary and who the various commentators are since there is no identification of anybody.I am surprised that PBS approved this film and has shown it, presumably, on the air for a mass audience.
