This documentary frames gun violence as both a disaster and a public health issue through the eyes of its victims. It addresses the critical issue of gun violence prevention by moving the conversation away from the polarizing extremes that have long dominated the debate and lifting up the voice and experiences of those who seek common ground and a new way forward.

I honestly feel extensive pain for anyone that has lost a friend or family member to gun violence and I hope that everyone involved in this movie have been able to find some sort of closure with loosing a loved one in such a circumstances. On the flip side of that, an armed society is a polite society, and that has been proven throughout history. The thing that seems to not come up in this movie is that every person that commits a mass shooting is breaking the law because they have premeditated murder. They also fail to bring up the stats of how may lives are saved due to firearms in any calendar year. It is unfortunate that our society is not worried about figuring out criminal activity but would rather make it illegal for its citizens be able to protect themselves and people around them!!!!
The video is long on emotion and does nothing to seek solutions on how to better provide defense of the defenseless, or to deter shooters. Shootings are tragic, but perpetuating the mindset of dwelling on emotion instead of ensuring that citizens can defend themselves, classrooms can be defended, churches can be defended, etc. is just more pot-stirring and does nothing to address the problem.
In this video they told of incidences of shooting yet I heard nothing on what is being done to stop it. Just peaceful walks. I heard nothing about government. Nothing about the prison system that now breeds criminals. They take these young kids who commit non violent crimes and put them in adult prisons where he learns the tricks of the trade. Our government is doing this for revenue. They could care less who is suffering. Police are shooting innocent individuals and they get away with it. In most police on citizen shootings, they say "I thought he had what looked like a gun or I feared for my life.". Those cops need to be out of the force if they fear for their life as it is their job to go out there and risk their life to maintain order. I think the police now are creating a hostile environment. The way they treat people. I saw a cop slam a mans head into a cop are. There is no cause for that. Why fo they reach for the gun when they have the taser? I believe everyone should be able to possess a gun for their own safety. I believe that the gun stores should be held to stricter laws and the government should investigate how these kids are getting these weapons. They can find Bin Laden but they can't find out who is selling these guns illegally? They should start at the top not arrest all the little kids in the neighborhood. It will not stop drug dealing, gangster activity etc. A job will and proper education system. Focus more on solving this problem through some proper investigations. How does a teen get a gun on the streets?
If you are becoming numb to gun violence stats, how about connecting with real people affected by this plague on our society? This doc does just that, and is a personal call to action for every American idly hoping for someone else to solve the problem. The message hits home, and Gun violence threatens the safety and future of all Americans, yet we continue to accept its just the price of freedom. Trigger should be the one that convinces us that its time to tackle this once and for all.
In an age when we’ve grown accustomed to shootings, I’m grateful for this video to put a human face on the ongoing tragedy of gun violence. Part of me would have liked more action steps but maybe we just need to hear the stories first.....
Gun violence has reached epidemic levels in the US and this film looks at it as a public health crisis. It also focuses on some common sense steps that could help prevent the gun violence that is happening every day in neighborhoods across the country -- that are often not even reported. This film is a wake-up call that we cannot become numb and desensitized to the daily toll of gun violence and urgently need to find common ground across the political spectrum and take steps to save lives.
