As you saw in the film, a small but dangerous group of gun stores are responsible for almost 90% of traceable guns used in crimes, these stores are called Bad Apple Gun Stores. In fact, 86% of gun stores in the U.S. do not supply a single gun used in a crime in a given year! But bad apple gun stores put profit over safety and give a bad name to responsible gun stores and gun owners everywhere.
In the film, you see Chicago community members and leaders putting public pressure on one such bad apple gun store to be responsible or put out of business.Follow Chicago’s example by taking action in your own community and talking with your elected officials about bad apple gun stores.
