‘Under the Gun’ Documentary Puts Gun Violence in Crosshairs

Santa Barbara Coalition Against Gun Violence presents “Under the Gun,” a documentary that moves from an overview of the broader history of gun violence to very specific and individual tragic experiences. It will be shown at 7 p.m. Oct. 21 at Marjorie Luke Theater, 721 Cota St., Santa Barbara. Tickets at the door are $10 per family.

Katie Couric, the film's narrator and executive producer, and Stephanie Soechtig, the director, focus on both sides of the issue of gun violence in America. Winning accolades at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, followed by a limited theatrical release, it is now being shown in cities across America.

The event is co-sponsored by Casa de la Raza, Democratic Women of Santa Barbara County, Glendon Association, Santa Barbara Response Network, Santa Barbara Women’s Political Committee, Ventura County Chapter of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

Rep. Lois Capps’ introductory remarks will focus on the June 22 House sit-in. State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, Assemblymember Das Williams, county Supervisor Salud Carbajal and Bob Weiss, father of Veronika Weiss, who was killed in the Isla Vista tragedy, will engage the audience in a Town Hall discussion.

“Safety for All” Proposition 63 will be included in this community conversation.

The Santa Barbara Coalition Against Gun Violence is a nonprofit coalition comprised of 40-plus member organizations united against gun violence and committed to creating a safer community for Santa Barbara County residents through its educational programs and advocacy for effective local, state and national policies and legislation.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
