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 – and what we can do to put an end to this profit-driven crisis. Brave New Films will work with partners to fight for a country where public safety is more valued than profit. Fresno Center for Nonviolence, 1584 N. Van Ness (SE Corner Van Ness/McKinley) FREE
