New Film Counters Michael Moore on Guns, History, Politics
Submitted by: News Admin

"Michael Moore argues that America possesses 'too many guns.' If so, why in the last 20 years -- with gun ownership up -- has violent crime declined in America? Liberals believe gun control reduces crime. Does it? What about the effect on urban crime when cities outlaw so-called 'cheap Saturday night specials'?"

"How often do Americans use guns for defensive purposes? I wanted to put this question to Moore. He tells us, for example, that over 11,000 people die each year because of guns. But how many Americans credit their lives with their ability to use a gun to defend themselves?"

"Bullets fired in government tests penetrated more than half the police body armor vests containing the synthetic fiber Zylon, already the subject of lawsuits over reliability."

"The Justice Department tests showed that vests made with Zylon lose strength over time, well before their standard five-year warranty expires and even when the armor appears to be in good condition, . . ."

"The vests were subjected to six shots from 9-millimeter pistols and other weapons. Sixty vests, 58 percent of the total, were penetrated by at least one round."

"Even among the armor that stopped all six shots, all but four vests failed another test that measures the impact, or blunt force trauma, an officer could expect to absorb."

"Ohioans have learned that Wal-Mart stores have consistently removed any 'No Guns' signs posted by local management. Ohioans For Concealed Carry has learned that the majority of these signs are the result of local management being duped by 'compliance kits' mailed out with the impression that the signs are required by law."

But 640 Toronto crime expert and host of The Beat Craig Bromell says that's about all police can do because there's nothing illegal about them.

There are suggestions that two of the shirts have been seized.
