Through the use of editing,…

Excitement floods my mind as I tell myself that today will be the day that I will…

Moore attempts to establish the ethos of an “average gun-owning American” by describing how much he loved guns as a little boy and that he is a lifetime member of the NRA, but he undercuts his credibility by…
