Summary
Bringing a female perspective to the debate that's raging across the nation, A Girl and a Gun explores the intersection of girl power and firepower. Filmed throughout the U.S., the film delves into the American gun world to show the relationship between women and their guns. The classic Hollywood portrayals of pistol packin' mamas, tomboy sharp shooters, sexually twisted femme fatales, and high-heeled, cold-blooded assassins are caricatures. In truth, the typical woman who hangs out at rifle ranges and keeps ammo in her purse is the girl next door, the single mom, a hard working sister or aunt. Maybe she's a realist or maybe she has learned tough lessons from life. Either way, she cares about her personal safety and may find salvation, comfort, or even something satisfying in possessing a gun. In a word, she is empowered. Breaking through the stereotypes, the film reveals how some women have embraced this object whose history is deeply bound to men and masculinity. Punctuated with archival footage and expert commentary to provide a rich historical and cultural context, the film presents a nuanced, empowering perspective on a deadly serious issue
