Church & State takes a surprisingly funny and honest look at what happens when a conservative Christian senator is forced to question his stance on both guns and God three days before Election Day.

Sandy Hook Promise is an organization that educates and empowers parents, schools, and community organizations on how to prevent gun violence before it happens. It advocates for mental health & wellness early-intervention programs, gun safety storage practices, and sensible state and federal policy. For more information, visit www.sandyhookpromise.org.
