Told from the gun’s perspective, IN MY SIGHTS follows the “life” of a gun, from its creation and adoption by a loving couple, to its theft and use in a shooting, exploring how even well-intentioned gun owners can find their weapons embroiled in violent crime.


    "So. I think you're all curious. About MY point of view. How the gun feels, not just the person pulling the trigger."
