Storyline

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. Written by Brave New Films

Great Documentary
4 December 2017 | by sdavis5483See all my reviews

This is a well-made, factual documentary. One proof of that fact is the way NRA members are rating this down and trying to challenge its facts using non-factual insults. Now more than ever we need movies like this to show us the danger that radical groups like the NRA pose to our way of life.

Watch this show and judge for yourself; then spread it to all your friends.
