“Making a Killing: Guns, Greed, and The NRA” tells the stories of how guns, and the billions made off of them, affect the lives of everyday Americans. It features personal stories from people across the country who have been affected by gun violence, including survivors and victims’ families. The film exposes how the powerful gun companies and the NRA are resisting responsible legislation for the sake of profit – and thereby putting people in danger.  The film looks into gun tragedies that include unintentional shootings, domestic violence, suicides, mass shootings and trafficking – and what we can do to put an end to this profit-driven crisis.  Join us to learn more, discuss, demand – and achieve – common sense gun laws now.  “If something’s wrong, say it’s wrong.  And if you can do something to make it better, do it.” Anonymous  speaker in film.

As always with (director) Greenwald, it’s refreshing that he doesn’t… indulge in fear-mongering.  He has the resources and the research team to sort through lots of data, culling the relevant points and encouraging action.” Noel Murray, L.A. Times
