An emotional Michael Moore berated Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid D-Nev. last night for the decision not to include Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s assault weapons ban in the Democratic gun control bill.

The liberal filmmaker was a guest of CNN’s Piers Morgan last night, criticizing the senior Democrat with rhetoric usually reserved for former President George W. Bush.

“This is just going to keep going on and on and on, until people rise up,” Moore insisted. “Until people take Harry Reid by the collar and say, ‘Who the hell do you think you are, this is our country Harry Reid.’

“He should be ashamed of himself,” Morgan agreed.

Moore asserted that Reid would act differently “if a man with an assault weapon killed Harry Reid’s grandchildren,” berating the Senate leader for being a coward.

Moore told viewers to email the Senate Majority leader at harry_reid@us.senate.gov, which turned out to be the wrong email address, prompting Moore to call for angry tweets to Sen. Reid’s twitter account.

“If you don’t take the time to send him an e-mail, don’t complain about it after the next shooting because the next shooting is going to happen.” Moore said angrily.

Morgan agreed, pointing out that Reid had been “cowed” by the National Rifle Association.

“I feel angry about this day. I think it’s a day that’s shaming America, shaming the Senate,” he concluded.

Moore added that he would host a “virtual discussion” online for Americans on Saturday and watch his anti-gun movie “Bowling for Columbine.”

“I’m tired of sitting around,” he insisted. “I’m not going to sit around. I haven’t sat around. I’ve dealt with this issue since Columbine.”
