This one-hour documentary explores the contentious debate over
gun control, as seen through the eyes of two mothers on opposite
sides of the issue. Frances Davis from Brooklyn lost all three of
her sons to gun violence and is a fierce advocate of gun control.
Maria Heil rural Pennsylvanian mother of four, serves as spokeswoman
for the Second Amendment Sisters, a group formed in response to
the Million Mom March in 2000.
