Colin Goddard, profiled in "Gun Fight" & Maniko Barthelemy
If everyone owned a gun, would that stop gun violence? In "Gun Fight," the question is answered by people who are gun lobbyists, NRA members and gun violence survivors like Colin Goddard. Goddard, a Virginia Tech shooting survivor, candidly discusses his life after the Virginia Tech shootings, the death of his sister and the atmosphere on campus before, during and after the tragedy. The film shines a spotlight on backdoor ways some buy guns. It also puts a microscope on the politics behind the right to carry arguments and the horror emergency rooms across the country face when treating people with gunshot wounds. "Gun Fight" currently airs on HBO. Here's a clip: www.hbo.com/documentaries/gun-fight/video/trailer.html.
