FILM SYNOPSIS

RELEASE DATE: MARCH 15TH

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. Through this film and campaign, Brave New Films will work with partners to fight for a country where public safety is more valued than profit.  

Join us to demand – and achieve – common sense gun laws now.

Sign the petition to tell Congress: hold gun industry accountable.

 

To Members of the 114th U.S. Congress:

Gun manufacturers and dealers make huge profits from America’s gun violence epidemic, which kills over 33,000 Americans a year. Yet they have a unique immunity that shields them from accountability for the injuries their products create. Right now people can sue a toy company for an injury from a water gun, or a car company for the injury from an airbag, but they can’t sue a gun company for a death from a firearm. And with 50,000 guns sold to criminals across U.S. state lines each year, it’s time to fix that. The majority of guns sold to criminals come from a small portion of what are known as “bad-apple” gun dealers. It’s time to hold them accountable.

Pass the Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act (H.R. 4399/S. 2469), which would repeal the gun industry’s immunity from being sued.

The gun industry has special protections and cannot be sued or held liable for the injury its products cause. This is due to previous legislation passed to protect gun dealers known as PLCAA (The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act).

The Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act (H.R. 4399/S. 2469), introduced earlier this year, would overturn PLCAA and repeal this immunity. These bills in the House and the Senate would allow Americans to hold firearm manufacturers and dealers liable for harm caused by the weapons they sell.

This legislation would make the gun industry accountable to their products in the same way industries like the car and toy industries already are. Right now, you can sue for damage done by a toy water gun, but not for damage done by a real gun. This legislation would fix that.

Let Congress know you support this legislation. It’s time to hold the gun industry accountable for knowingly selling firearms to criminals for the sake of profit.
