This paper discusses Michael Moore's thesis in the film "Bowling for Columbine" and examines how Karl Marx and Emile Durkheim might respond to Moore's analysis of the culture of guns in America.

From the Paper:

"In the documentary "Bowling for Columbine" writer-director Michael Moore argues both directly and by illustrative evidence, that ready access to guns goes far to explain the high incidence of death and injury in the United States, due to the use of guns as weapons, whether illegally or legally obtained. As Moore points out, the annual U.S. toll of gun deaths accounts for the combined gun death toll of several of the world's industrialized democracies including Great Britain and Canada."
