Gun violence has been an ongoing problem in the United States, with far too many tragic stories and lives lost due to firearms. But, there is hope that a new approach could start to make a difference. The documentary “Gun by Gun” takes on the issue of gun violence head-on and proposes solutions that could help reduce this epidemic.
The film follows Mel, who is the most heavily armed man in the United States. He owns an array of various weapons, all legally owned – thanks to America’s lax gun laws. Even though he is allowed to fire them on his property, Mel has another goal in mind – he wants to use his weapons to end gun violence and make people safer. By inspiring others with his personal story of redemption, Mel hopes to create a movement that will pressure lawmakers into passing smarter gun regulations and prevent future tragedies from happening.
This heartwarming and compelling documentary offers a unique insight into what it takes to tackle such a complex problem as gun violence in the U.S., and how ordinary people can make a difference even when faced with immense obstacles along the way. Through interviews with individuals from different backgrounds who have been affected by guns and other experts in the field, “Gun by Gun” gives viewers an opportunity to understand how lives were changed forever because of misguided policies and powerful lobbyists who seek only their own interests over those of public safety.
