Michael Moore Calls for Complete Gun Control Following Texas School Shooting

“We don’t need the sensible stuff. We need the hard-core stuff.”

  • Documentarian and progressive liberal Michael Moore is calling for aggressive and complete gun control following the shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.
  • Moore made his comments during an interview with MSNBC, calling for the Second Amendment to be repealed.
  • “I think we need some really drastic action here,” he said before suggesting a “moratorium” on gun sales. “We don’t need the sensible stuff. We need the hard-core stuff that is going to protect ourselves and our children,” Moore stated.
  • Moore asserted, “We will not acknowledge that we are a violent people, to begin with. This country was birthed in violence with genocide of the native people at the barrel of a gun.”
  • “This country was built on the backs of slaves with a gun to their backs to build this country into the country that we got to have. We do not want to acknowledge or two original sins here that have a gun behind the ability behind our ability to become who we became,” he went on to say.
  • “Who will say on this network or on any other network in the next few days? It is time to repeal the Second Amendment,” the documentarian said. “You cannot say that. Well, why not? Why not?” Moore continued, before arguing that the founding fathers didn’t know what bullets were.
  • “I truly believe if Jefferson, Madison and Washington if they all knew that the bullet would be invented — some 50 years after our revolution, I don’t know if they would have written it that way,” Moore stated.
  • “They didn’t even know what a bullet was. It didn’t exist until the 1830s. They had any idea that there would be this kind of carnage. You have to believe that the Founders of the country would not support it.”
  • Michael Moore is an author, filmmaker, and left-wing activist frequently appearing on cable news to speak on behalf of progressive causes.
  • He’s best known for his 2002 Academy Award-winning documentary about the Columbine High School massacre.
