In response to the Sandy Hook shooting last week in CT, filmmaker Michael Moore has been very vocal about his disdain for Americans’ desire to own firearms per our Second Amendment rights.

“We’ve got over a quarter-billion guns in people’s homes. And they’re mostly in the suburbs and rural areas where there is virtually no crime and no murder. So why is that? What are they really afraid of? What do they think of — who’s going to break into the house?” he asked.

“Do they think it’s little freckled-face Jimmy down the street? I don’t think so. I don’t think that’s who they’re afraid of. And it cuts down to the heart of our race problem that we still haven’t resolved,” Moore said.

Which brings us to this story from on January 20th, 2005:

Filmmaker Michael Moore’s (search) bodyguard was arrested for carrying an unlicensed weapon in New York’s JFK airport Wednesday night.

Police took Patrick Burke, who says Moore employs him, into custody after he declared he was carrying a firearm at a ticket counter. Burke is licensed to carry a firearm in Florida and California, but not in New York. Burke was taken to Queens central booking and could potentially be charged with a felony for the incident.

Moore’s 2003 Oscar-winning film “Bowling for Columbine” criticizes what Moore calls America’s “culture of fear” and its obsession with guns.

We rarely find this level of blatant hypocrisy outside of our own Federal Government.

  1. Leave it to the hipocrite to bring race into the discussion. I bet if one were to search his home you would find an array of firearms, He would probably say they are for hunting. He has made a fortune on the backs of those unfortunate to have had relatives or friends murdered by a gun toting lunatic, then blame it on the gun manufacturers or anyone who believes in their second amendment rights. I concur with a few of the things he has brought up, like asking politicians why their sons and daughters did not serve in the military.I just hope he is going to get a good lawyer to back up his bodyguard, and not throw him to the wolves.
