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 »

Nothing but Gun Control Propaganda
23 May 2016 | by Les AkerSee all my reviews

The use of very selective editing in this presentation of biased gun control propaganda is obvious.

The is evidenced clearly at the end when a list of gun control groups are listed asking people to support them.

The amount of time and attention given to the gun control propaganda extends across practically all of the time in the presentation.

There is no "gun show loophole", the same laws are enforced at a gun show as are enforced at all other locations in the state where a show is located.

If background checks worked as these propagandists claim the people that fail a background check would be arrested and prosecuted since it is a felony to lie on the form and fail the check. But they are not. All the background check system does it attempt to create a registry.
