Announcing a special screening of a feature-length documentary:

Making a Killing: Guns, Greed & the NRA

Thursday, April 12, 2018, at 6:30 pm at Cape Cinema in Dennis.

 

Ticket price: $10 – Funds raised will be used for grant awards to support projects or activities that involve students or young adults in gun violence prevention efforts.

 

This powerful documentary examines the gun violence epidemic in the US.

With survivors’ stories; police film and audio; video clips of politicians and NRA officials; and many statistics, the film analyzes the US gun violence crisis in five arenas:

(1) domestic and spousal abuse; (2) accidental deaths with unsecured guns in the home;

(3) gun trade as fuel for gang and urban violence; (4) suicide; and (5) mass shootings.

 

It is raw, sorrowful, and compelling.

  • Rev. Kate Epperly, Coordinator, Cape Cod Fellowship of Reconciliation
  • Margy Mahrdt, Cape Cod Regional Rep., Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America
