At a town hall meeting held on the 10th anniversary of the documentary “Bowling for Columbine” winning an Oscar for “Best Documentary,” liberal filmmaker Michael Moore urged mothers and fathers concerned about gun violence to form community groups with friends and neighbors, with the goal of every member getting as many other people as possible to contact their members of Congress in support of gun control
Video of Saturday night’s town hall discussion in New York City was published to YouTube on Sunday. Moore and Democratic-affiliated activist group MoveOn.org organized the discussion to coincide with house parties around the country featuring screenings of “Bowling for Columbine,” followed by Moore’s live presentation that included participation from the audience on Twitter.
