In 2014, we began researching and collecting stories of families affected by gun violence. Through our work we have unveiled how a shared greed has nurtured a symbiotic relationship between the National Rifle Association, gun manufacturers and elected officials. Since then thousands of people have contributed to telling these stories and making this connection to the world.
The bad news: Two years later, the NRA and gun manufacturers are still waging war at any regulation that could save lives.
The good news: Making a Killing: Guns, Greed, and the NRA should be ready for release the week of March 14. Now, we have the opportunity to tell these stories to the world and take on the NRA once and for all.
Will you contribute $10 to produce this film? With every contribution, big or small, you will get a free screening kit with link to the film when available. $50 gets your name in the end credits as an honorary Producer.
In 2014 the NRA spent over $345 million to lobby against regulation that would save lives, like those of the people featured in this film and the lives of so many others. With Obama’s renewed push for regulation, the upcoming presidential election and more tragic events unfolding each day, we are ready and eager for real change. This film builds capacity for change by transforming the gun debate, elevating awareness to the NRA’s role in creating a $6 billion a year gun industry that profits from death and tragedy. But, we need resources to tell these stories and get this film to the world.
Contribute $10 today to keep this film on track for a March release. There are only 3 days left to contribute $50 or more and be listed as an honorary Producer in the end credits of this film.
Thank you in advance for your support.
