Ep. 176: "What Is So Different About Americans? Are We Homicidal By Nature?" (w/ Tom Mauser, Columbine parent)

On Tuesday, March 23rd, when a young American man went on a shooting rampage at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado, killing 10 people, it marked the 7th mass shooting in America in the last 7 days. Maybe life is getting back to normal in the U.S.?

March 23rd was also the 18-year anniversary of Michael Moore winning the Academy Award for "Bowling For Columbine," a film exploring America's love affair with guns, its history of racism and its culture of fear. He took the stage and denounced the Bush administration's illegal and immoral war in Iraq which had been launched days earlier.

One of the most memorable voices in "Bowling For Columbine" was Tom Mauser, father of 15 year-old Daniel Mauser, one of the 12 students killed at Columbine High School on April 20th, 1999. Mauser raised an idea that became the key question in the film: while other countries have violent histories, violent video games, violent movies, and profane music, and while some also have plenty of guns, why is it only in America that we shoot and kill each other so much?

Twenty years later, Tom Mauser joins Michael on Rumble to discuss the same exact question.
