The Gun Shop is a Documentary programme.


The Gun Shop

Nothing divides Americans more than their constitutional right to bear arms versus the merits of gun control. Fiercely debated in the run-up to the US election, this all-consuming preoccupation with firearms can seem baffling. To understand how and why guns are so central to American life, this Cutting Edge documentary has gained access to a small, family-run shop in Michigan, documenting the many and varied customers who come through the shop's doors and revealing the relationship that everyday Americans have with their guns. Going beyond the gun-toting stereotypes, this thought-provoking documentary explores all sides of the debate from the floor of a shop where the routines of buying and selling are so familiar but the products on sale are shockingly different.
