Filmmaker Michael Moore says he has “no prayers” to offer for “strangely frightened” Americans in the wake of the Saugus High School shooting.

The liberal activist behind 2002’s “Bowling for Columbine” told Twitter followers on Thursday that prayers were no longer an option for a country allegedly living in a perpetual state of “madness.”

Mr. Moore’s comments came after a teenager at the Santa Clarita, California, school killed two, wounded three others, and shot himself with a .45 semi-automatic pistol.

The gunman is in grave condition at a local hospital after surviving his self-inflicted gunshot wound.

“This week’s school shooting, 7:38am PT this morning at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, California. 6 students shot, 2 dead as of now,” Mr. Moore, a long-time gun control activist, tweeted. “I have NO prayers, but MANY thoughts. We Americans are a strangely frightened people with 340 million guns in private possession. Madness!”



“We Americans are a violent people,” he added. “Kill. Kill. Kill. Kill Indians. Lynch black people or shoot them in their homes. Invade nations. Assassinate leaders. A Senate that kills the Violence Against Women’s Act. Not one bishop in jail for allowing rape of children. The list is endless.”

Police are still trying to determine the 16-year-old’s motives for the shooting.
