FEATURING ROBERT GREENWALD – Gun proliferation activist Jamie Gilt was shot in early March – by her own 4-year old son. Gilt, who runs the Facebook page, Jamie Gilt for Gun Sense, was shot in her back when her toddler got a hold of her gun while in the back seat of her car. Just a day earlier she had posted a statement saying, ” Even my 4 year old gets jacked up to target shoot with the .22′.”
The stunning truth is there are so many guns in the US that toddlers fatally shoot more Americans than terrorists. There is a clear line between gun ownership and gun violence -state by state, the more guns a state has, the more gun violence there is.
Yet, according to the NRA – the largest gun lobby in the country – guns make people safer! Calling out the epidemic of gun violence is a new documentary called Making a Killing: Guns, Greed, and The NRA.
