A Community Discussion on

GUN VIOLENCE IN AMERICA

The film, THE ARMOR OF LIGHT, follows the journey of an Evangelical minister trying to find the courage to preach about the growing toll of gun violence in America. The film tracks Reverend Rob Schenck who breaks with orthodoxy by questioning whether being pro-gun is consistent with being pro-life. Along the way, Rev. Schenck meets an unlikely partner from Florida with a very personal “Stand Your Ground” experience.
