There has been a worrying rise in Gun Crime in the UK over the last three years, leading the BBC to conducted a six month investigation into it.

Their investigation looks at all demographics who could be affected including the innocent bystander shot in a nightclub, tragically losing his ability to walk, a mother who’s 14 year old son was killed in a park with still nobody brought to justice and, controversially, the people in possession of the guns.

The documentary poses difficult questions to these men and aims to uncover their motivations and what drives them to cause senseless harm to innocent people. It also also looks at how relaxed many of these people are about their crimes, even down to the point where many of them are boastfully posting pictures and videos of themselves wielding deadly weapons on social media.
