          I saw it in the TV guide last week - you'll have to be quicker vern :P .

          I taped it last night (but missed the first half hour), I have watched the remainder this afternoon and thought it was very thought provoking.

          Very good film/documentary.

          People with guns... :banghead:

            I watched it last night. A very powerful, thought provoking film. The really chilling part was when you saw the two boys shooting in Columbine High It was sad to see Charlton Heston looking so old and frail but I can't agree with his stance. Although I've heard from other sites that some of the footage of him was cut to make it look worse than it was.

            The statistics though were horrific. Over eleven thousand gun murders in one year!

            I thought the visit to K-Mart headquarters with some of the Columbine survivors was powerful as well. Although I think K-Mart have either gone into liquidation or have closed a huge amount of stores so I don't suppose it was too much of a sacrifice for them to stop selling ammunition. Made good publicity though :unsure:

                      Thanks Vern

                      You actually had me watching something other than Pop Idol on a Saturday night (yey!!)

                      It left me wondering what Charlton Heston now thinks about what he did on camera when confronted over that little girl's death (especially given that the film was subsequesntly awarded an Oscar).

                      So Vern - if you've got any other good film tips - I'm all ears!!
