Making a Killing: Guns, Greed & the NRA

Promotional photo

Making a Killing shows how the lucrative firearms industry and the NRA are putting people’s lives in danger by opposing common sense gun reform in order to turn a profit.

The film intersperses emotional stories of gun violence : accidental deaths from guns not stored safely; the impact of gun trafficking across state borders from states with weak guns laws and mass shootings, such as at Orlando, San Bernardino, Aurora, Colorado and at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
