Michael Moore: 'The NRA Is Doomed' (VIDEO)

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore told HuffPost Live Friday that he believes the deadly mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., was a "tipping point" in the gun control debate and that the National Rifle Association is "doomed" as a result.

"People did not forget about this over Christmas," Moore told HuffPost Live host Marc Lamont Hill. "In fact, after Christmas when parents started taking their kids back to school and dropping them off in the morning, they couldn't get this out of their heads. That's the thing ... the NRA, they are doomed as a result of this."

Moore added that he believed "any sensical person" in the country is in favor of "eliminating as many of these guns and ammunition as possible."

"We're never gonna get rid of crazy people. They've been around for thousands of years -- they'll continue to be around; they'll continue to do horrible things. But why are we their enablers? That's the crazy part," Moore said.
