The special comes on the heels of a series of more than 20 stories about guns that aired all during November.
The Gun Fight — A Primetime Special continues to explore the issues and perspectives surrounding gun ownership and gun violence in the greater Atlanta area.
“The differing perspectives of our panel create a spirited view with many insights,” said Mark Pimentel, WGCL’s general manager.
The special features 25 participants who come from different sides of the issues — judges, prosecutors, elected officials, religious leaders, law enforcement, gun rights advocates, victims and families of gun violence victims.
“There are layers to the issue that I never knew existed,” said Rudy Murrieta, WGCL’s assistant news director.
“The pieces helped set up some of the discussion at the forum.”
The Gun Fight — A Primetime Special was produced in partnership with Georgia Public Broadcasting.
