Storyline

A drastic rise in mass shootings has ripped across the US in recent years. Despite a growing body count and the chorus of outrage that comes with it, America has failed to respond. The film explores why this is and how the firearms industry's lobbying group, the National Rifle Association, has developed a stranglehold on the politics of the issue. Searing and powerful, Under the Gun ultimately gives a human face to a crisis that is scarring the conscience of a nation.

Trivia

The statement that buying firearms in a private party sale across borders is legal, is a lie. Federal law prohibits anyone, except Federal Firearms License holders, from selling to a person from another state, and even FFL dealers are limited to long guns. Another Federal felony confessed to, committed 4 times, is the straw purchase, buying the guns for someone else. All parties involved could be going to prison, See more »

Sandy Hook tragedy by mentally ill with mothers guns
23 May 2016 | by sfr-67970See all my reviews

This is typical Liberal BS blaming guns for the actions of the mentally ill. Learn how to identify the problem before you take action to fix a problem and maybe you will understand where to step first. Katie Couric is no longer relevant to society so this is her way of keeping her Liberal name in the public eye? Unfortunately - she and her rhetoric do not fit into the Bill of Rights here in America and making guns illegal allows only criminals to have guns. You will be lucky if a cop with a gun saves your life some day but if you have your own gun and are properly trained to use it your chance of survival will increase greatly.
