Movie Moles Denise Morris and Jan Haaken revisit Michael Moore's 2002 Bowling for Columbine in the aftermath of the shootings in Newtown. They discuss the film's debunking of conventional explanations and its exploration of the multiple factors involved in such incidents, including fears of one's fellow citizens, racism, and militarism. They also consider the misleading resort to stories of mental illness in current debates, when people with mental illness are more likely to be victims than perpetrators of violence.
