What happens when you can’t tell who the good guys are because everyone has a gun?

I had been wanting to do a short narrative about gun violence for some time due to the regular occurrence of mass shootings in this country. Filmed in 2017, Good Guys With Guns was conceived after Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings went on national TV after the Dallas police shootings and declared that they could not tell who the good guys or bad guys were because people with guns were fleeing the scene, and it made for a nightmare to sort out who was who.

While making the rounds on the festival circuit, and after the most recent school mass shootings, we have decided to forego waiting for more festivals and release Good Guys With Guns online to get as many people to see it. It’s too important not to. Let’s end gun violence together.
