30 Days: Gun Nation

Found this on Hulu.com and thought it was pretty interesting. Morgan Spurlock, who climbed into the limelight with his documentary Supersize Me, has a show called 30 Days on F/X in which he or somebody else spends 30 days experiencing a different life sytle or environment. His first episode was filmed right here in Columbus, Ohio as he and his girlfriend tried to make it 30 days on minimum wage. This episode from July, 2008 places a young woman who's life has been altered by gun violence in the home of a single dad and his son from Leesburg, Ohio (I guess he likes us Buckeyes) who are were very pro gun. Given what I thought I knew of Spurlock's politics, I was pleasantly surprised with the way it turned out in the end. A bit long and with some ads, but worth the time spent watching it.
