Film Screening - Making a Killing: Guns, Greed and the NRA

Brave New Films released a new feature film, Making a Killing: Guns, Greed, and the NRA, that tells the stories of five families and communities affected by gun violence and covers the issues of domestic violence and background checks, suicide and waiting periods, unintentional shootings and safety solutions, mass shootings and mass ammunition sales, and trafficking and the need for stronger corporate accountability and federal laws around gun sales.
nra-guns.jpgThe film is entirely FREE and aims to do two main things:
  1. Reframe the messaging around guns in America to one of the citizens’ right to safety being bought-off and endangered by the NRA and gun companies due to the huge amount of profit they make from our gun violence epidemic.
  2. Serve as an organizing tool for organizations to use to engage and mobilize members and new activists around this issue at the national, state, and local level. The film can also be used for your organization to fundraise off of.
There are 3 main ways to get involved in screening the film, which you can sign-up for here:
  • House Parties: BNF has a full-time organizer on hand to help individuals and organizations run house party screenings with an average of 10-20 people.
  • Group Screenings: BNF can support organizations, schools, and places of worship in putting on screenings.
  • Premiere Screenings: BNF will be having large screenings with Q&As and panels in theaters in these cities throughout the country that you can help organize, table at, and invite members to: Chicago, New York, DC, Miami, Denver, LA. Dates will be announced soon.

We encourage you to use this opportunity to gather in community and discuss the ways you can play a role in changing the conversation around guns and violence in this country.

    I read this article after watching the DVD, The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers. The current issue of Mother Jones Magazine in fact features an article on the immense profit gun companies make while their products run rampant in our cities, and NRA and its members do everything possible to make sure that no regulation will ever impede their profit.
