Movie – “Making a Killing” about Guns and the NRA


MAK_Poster Making a KillingWill you join your fellow Californians to learn more about what you can do to fight for gun safety in our state?

Pastor Laurie is hosting a viewing of “Making a Killing”:

Wednesday, October 26, 7:00 PM

652 Woodland Ave
San Leandro, CA 94577

Welcome…please visit my home at 7 pm on Wed Oct 26 to view “Making a Killing”, and to support passing Prop 63 on Nov 8. We will have light refreshments and pizza. Feel free to bring food to share. Show time starts at 7 pm. There’s plenty of street parking on a nice, quiet road.

Making a Killing is a new film by Brave New Films and Robert Greenwald. It reveals how the NRA made billions off of guns and gun-related tragedies. The screenings are intended to help educate voters on how we can stop gun violence from plaguing our country by passing Proposition 63 — the Safety for All initiative. If Prop 63 passes, California can help set the gold standard for meaningful reforms to stop gun violence and create a model that could be applied nationwide. But we can’t do this alone. Even if we are already supportive of limiting gun access, we all have a lot to learn about how to disarm the NRA and the powerful gun industry.

Film & Potluck: Making a Killing

MAK_Poster Making a KillingTonight, June 28th, 6:00 PM

Skyline church is holding a public viewing of “Making a Killing: Guns, Greed, and The NRA”. Please join us for this important evening.

This film 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.

Bring a dish for a simple dinner potluck, and invite your friends! Or just come for the film, don’t let a day too busy to get food together stop you if you want to come!
