Robert Greenwald’s New Documentary Takes on the NRA

The gun debate is one of those hot button issues that threatens to keep Americans divided for a long time. As with any controversial issue, both sides bring (to varying degrees) valid arguments.

Without getting into any of that, below is the trailer for a documentary by Robert Greenwald, who had directed such films as Uncovered: The War on Iraq(2004), Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism (2004), Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price (2005), Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers (2006),Rethink Afghanistan (2009), Koch Brothers Exposed (2012), and War on Whistleblowers (2013).


He takes on the NRA in this latest documentary, an industry that’s  incentive is to have guns flowing freely to both average citizens who feel the need to protect themselves, and to the psychopaths who are responsible for said need.


Unfortunately, many corporations are at least partly responsible for the top causes of death in America. From lung disease’s link to Big Tobaccoto suicide’s link to antidepressants made by Big Pharma, to the gamut of heart and kidney diseases that are linked to multinational fast food chains, to the military industrial complex that has supplied Saudi Arabia in its brutal campaign against civilians in Yemen.

There’s money to be made in death.
