Michael Moore is an elitist gun control zealot, but he has (or at least in 2005) a body guard who carries a gun. Why? Because hes safer that way.
Filmmaker Michael Moores (search) bodyguard was arrested for carrying an unlicensed weapon in New Yorks 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.
Moores 2003 Oscar-winning film Bowling for Columbine criticizes what Moore calls Americas culture of fear and its obsession with guns.
Moore, who always pretends he isnt filthy rich, can afford to hire armed protection (does this count as being obsessed with guns) yet doesnt believe in allowing those less fortunate than him to protect themselves with firearms.
If I worked for a protection agency I would be very interested in getting a clause that allows me to reject an assignment.
The key word is elitist. Doesn’t matter which party, elitists play by different riles than us common people.
What the elites are proposing is a samurai caste system, whereby commoners have to go around disarmed, whereas the elites get to have phalanxes of samurai warriors armed to the teeth. If we’re going to have gun control, it should extend throughout the land, not just to the great unwashed.
The little fat capitalist’s closet is soo rich.
so, now michael is, by definition, a “Gun Free Zone”
According to the left, he is much safer now without this bodyguard.
I say a law be passed that allows anyone to shoot Moore if they get caught be him and a cheeseburger.
“between” him and a cheeseburger.
Don't give them ideas. They could indeed make a law that prohibits all firearms ... and once passed, they will add exceptions for the police (how could we forget them!) and for bank workers (the money, it needs to be guarded!) and for VIP guards (those politicians, everyone is after them!) and then for VIPs themselves. After all it's just a simple matter of getting onto the VIP list. The peasants, of course, will be denied forever, just like in Middle Ages.
He lives on Torch Lake, Nat'l Geographic deemed it the 3rd most beautiful lake in the WORLD...
I’d feel far more threatened standing between him and an all-you-can-eat buffet, honestly.
He lives on Torch Lake, Nat’l Geographic deemed it the 3rd most beautiful lake in the WORLD...
How can that be when he goes around assuring everyone he isn’t wealthy?
Patrik Burke, Moore's bodyguard at the time
Someone has to be seriously hard up for a job to be a bodyguard for that fat POS.
What a hypocrite he is.
