Families of Sandy Hook shooting victims say they don’t like filmmaker Michael Moore’s idea for crime scene photos showing the children’s and teachers’ bodies to be released, The Daily Mail reports.
Moore wrote in his blog last week that releasing the gruesome photos for the public to see would “finish off the NRA.”
Dorrie Carolan of the Newtown Parent Connection told Fox News, “It’s going to be a long healing process and to dredge up pictures of the crime scene would not be a good thing.
"We want to remember the little angels as they were, with their happy expressions and faces and you want to think of the teachers trying to hold them safe and not to see the pictures of their bodies.”
Jeremy Richman, whose 6-year-old daughter Avielle, was killed in the attack said: "I would be very strongly against that."
Another mother told Fox News: "You can imagine what my reaction to that is."
Moore called reaction to his post “overwhelming” in a later post on Friday.
“It is so very clear to everyone that the majority of Americans have had it with how we as a country have recklessly allowed the NRA and the gun manufacturers to get away, literally, with murder,” he wrote.
Moore is calling for people to watch his 2002 documentary “Bowling for Columbine” in their homes on Saturday, March 23, the same day MoveOn.org plans to screen the film in New York City.
“(A)nd then, afterward, I will join you LIVE, via the Web, in your living rooms to talk to you, take your questions/suggestions and decide what we are all going to do. … By the end of that night, my hope is that we will have a peaceful but fierce army of millions making their voices heard to those who represent us on Capitol Hill. We will, instantly, vastly outnumber the NRA and the gun lobby.”
