NEW YORK – More than a decade has passed since Michael Moore released his pro-gun control documentary “Bowling for Columbine,” and the director says he’s saddened that the nation has not made enough strides toward ending violence in schools.

“I never thought I would have to, a decade later, stand here and say that that film of mine did no good. That to me is personally heartbreaking,” Moore said Tuesday.

His 2002 documentary, which won an Academy Award, was inspired by the 1999 Columbine High School shootings in Colorado.

Moore said he has no interest in making a film about last month’s shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., that left 20 children and six adults dead.

“No, I’ve made the film I wanted to make with ‘Bowling for Columbine.’ Every word in it stands true to this day, which is the saddest thing,” he said.

After the recent tragedy, President Obama appointed Vice President Joe Biden to help come up with a solution.

The “Fahrenheit 9/11” filmmaker said that certain weapons need to be banned, and gun ownership should always require a license.

‘Rumsfeld’s Rules’ book due in May

NEW YORK – The many aphorisms of former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld are coming out in book form.

“Rumsfeld’s Rules” compiles observations on leadership and organization he has made over his decades spent in government and private business. Broadside Books, a conservative imprint of HarperCollins, announced Wednesday that the book will come out in May and will include new rules and additional commentary from Rumsfeld.

Rumsfeld, 80, who served as defense secretary under President Ford and President George W. Bush, has a long history of phrasemaking.
