On the September 21st edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the new documentary Making a Killing: Guns, Greed, and The NRA.

It tells the personal stories from people across the country who have been affected by gun violence, including survivors and victims' families. The film also exposes how the powerful gun companies and the NRA are resisting any legislation for the sake of profit. Tweet your questions and comments to @yourcallradio and join us live at 10am with me, Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Robert Greenwald, award winning feature film and documentary filmmaker, and founder and president of Brave New Films

Laurie Jones, programs director at Brave New Films

Kate Ranta, activist, and domestic and gun violence survivor
