America just went through the worst shooting in history in Las Vegas, this just goes to show that gun violence is something that is still relevant an needs to be discusses. DTV cover the topic of gun violence in our special last year, In the Line of Fire. This topic does’t seem to be going away anytime soon !
America is said to have the most firearms per capita in the world.
In 2015 alone there were 64 school shootings.
After the Sandy Hook shooting the NRA membership surged to 5 million people.
Over the past few months DTV has been tirelessly working on our new special “In the Line of Fire”. This special will be hosted by Jordyn Bruns and talk about gun violence in America. We have reached out and spoken to different people from all walks of life to bring you the arguments on both sides of this subject. A police Chief, a Flint preacher, a Sun Times reporter from Chicago, a Pro-Gun father, and an Anti-Gun activist are the people that make up this story.
Unlike our other specials we decided to tell the story from their points of view because everyone has a different interpretation of this controversial subject. For instance, you will not only hear from the father that lost his children, but also from the father that is educating his kids about the constitutional right that he believes will protect them for the rest of their lives. “In the line of Fire” examines 3 questions:
Is there a gun problem in America?
Why is there a problem?
How do we fix it?
The special will also talk about the divide in our country, laws and government play into this problem. You will have a chance to see how the state laws and restrictions are different from each other. It will also showcase the Congressional Debate going on in the national government between Democrats and Republicans.
