  • An incisive exploration into the women's movements on both sides of the emotionally charged gun control debate. The Million Moms and the Second Amendment Sisters are diametrically opposed on the issue of gun control, but they agree on one point: mothers will and should have a voice in determining gun control policy in America. The program explores the grassroots of both movements by focusing on two different women, living in two different Americas.
