Maine Moms Demand Action presents Under the Gun
Directed by Stephanie Soechtig
Executive produced and narrated by Katie Couric
1 hr 50 mins, NR
Join Maine Moms Demand Action for the film “Under the Gun,” screened recently at Sundance and directed by Stephanie Soechtig (“Fed Up”). It is a post-Newtown exploration of the issues around gun policy, and includes gun violence survivors, NRA members, and gun owners sharing their perspectives on gun ownership and regulation. The filmmakers – Katie Couric led the reporting – provide a “scrupulously balanced” perspective on where our culture is and what the major issues are in forging consensus. The film takes a hopeful look at breaking the logjams that have held up progress on sensible gun reform.
Maine Moms Demand Action is working on the Maine Background Check Initiative, a citizens’ initiative on the 2016 ballot that would apply the current background check law to every gun sale in Maine, with reasonable exceptions for family, hunting, and self-defense.
