House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Reps. David Cicilline, D-R.I., Robin Kelly, D-Ill., and Katherine M. Clark, D-Mass., on Wednesday will host a screening of the documentary “Making a Killing: Guns, Greed, and the NRA.”

The film tells the story of families who have lost loved ones to gun violence and draws a line from their stories to the National Rifle Administration.

Pelosi is expected to speak before the screening. Producer Jim Miller, and Kate Ranta, who was shot by her estranged husband in front of their four-year-old son, will lead a discussion after the film.

The screening is slated to take place in the Capitol Visitor Center, Room HVC-215, at 6 p.m. To attend, RSVP: kimber@bravenewfilms.org.
