LA Times http://www.latimes.com/news/state/20010620/t000051235.html Wednesday, June 20, 2001 Filmmaker Asks City to Shun Local Gun Maker From Times Staff and Wire Reports Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, film crew in tow, asked the Chino City Council Tuesday to pass a resolution stating that a local handgun manufacturer is not welcome there. Moore, who directed "Roger and Me," said the company, Davis Industries, produced a .32-caliber handgun that was used by a 6-year-old boy in Moore's hometown of Flint, Mich., to kill a first-grade classmate. "I know you need businesses here. I know you need jobs," Moore said. "But not at the expense of the lives of children." On Feb. 29, 2000, Moore said, the boy took the gun to class, pointed it at 6-year-old Kayla Rowland and pulled the trigger. Copyright 2001 Los Angeles Times

Those jobs are welcome here. Jennings has a plant in Carson City.

Moore is full of it, Davis' are great. They passed the PRK stringent testing requirements, allegedly done in part to stop "junk gun" sales. Poor people need guns too.

Lumpy223: Thanks for the background on this story. The rabidly anti-gun zealot L.A. Times is so far to the left, it is incredible. I have not owned a Davis, Jennings, etc, but I have fired a Davis, and out to 21 feet, it had adequate accuracy. My friend fired approximaely 150 rounds in it, before the slide cracked behind the ejection port. This service life is adequate considering thse people are not practicing for the local IPSC competition.

That a-hole has been around for years peddling his socialist bs when he craved attention. Ever see his steaming piece of turd tv show called "TV nation"? The guy makes a living off of belittling the Constitution, except of course the 1st amendment.

More proof the LA Times is an ass-rag: they consider Moore a "filmmaker".

That child was left in the care of drug users and if I am not mistaken, the gun was stolen. These pieces of sh!t are the ones responsible for this killing, the gun was only the tool. Michael Moore is an egotistical blowhard who only gives a damn about pushing his liberal views on anybody and everybody he can. That walking bag of pus makes me sick. Just another home grown a$$hole. Sorry for the rant........

Of course, if the child had been killed by a blow to the head with a hammer, I'm [i]sure[/i] Mr. Moore would be out campaigning to shut down hammer manufacturers.

ROTFLMAO!!! The funniest part is that they passed the drop test. Someone in Sacramento has got to be pissed! I wonder what scheme to restrict gun sales they will invent next?

They would be welcome in Idaho, and the producer, well f--k him, he is typical of a breed of idoits that permeate society.

Like the manufacturer passed out their guns to the kids like lolipops? WTF!@#@$%!! As for the la times, I wouldn't wipe my butt with it unless I had nothing else. Ice

Ask that steaming pantload if he's gonna protest about all the kids who are killed by the CARS that are manufactured in Flint, MI. I didn't think so.

Michael Moore is a socialist POS. However I don't think he practices what he preaches. I am sure he is quite well off from all the mindless idiots that buy into his agenda. Just another bleeding heart who wants to tear down everything that made this country great.

That guy's had his head up his ass for over 20 years.
