The filmmaker behind Bowling for Columbine has responded to calls for comment following the latest U.S. mass shooting.
Michael Moore wrote a Facebook post describing America’s national symbol as the gun, not the bald eagle.
‘With due respect to those who are asking me to comment on last night’s tragic mass shooting … I no longer have anything to say about what is now part of normal American life,’ Moore wrote.
‘Everything I have to say about this, I said it 12 years ago,’ he said, referencing his 2002 documentary in which he explored the possible causes of the horrific Columbine High School massacre in 1999 carried out by teens Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold.
He goes on to say that the U.S. is singularly plagued by these violent attacks in part because of a climate of fear and paranoia and weak gun laws that enable ‘disturbed white males’ to get their hands on deadly weapons – legally.
Elliot Rodger was found to have three .9mm semi-automatic gun and more than 400 rounds of ammunition, all of which was legally purchased and registered.
