PLAINFIELD, NJ - The First Unitarian Society of Plainfield will show the 2016 documentary film by Robert Greenwald, Making A Killing: Guns, Greed and the NRA, on Friday, March 9 at 7 p.m. as part of its free Second Friday Film Series.
The evening's event is co-sponsored by Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America-Union County and the YWCA Union County.
Making A Killing relates the stories of how guns, and the money made from them, affect the lives of everyday Americans. It features first-hand accounts from people who have been affected by gun violence, including survivors and victims' families.
According to IMDB, "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."
(Note: trailer may contain disturbing images)
The presentation of this film was selected for the event by the sponsors several months ago; however, its showing is timely based on current events.
All are welcome to view the film, and are encouraged to stay after to participate in an interactive community conversation.
