Bill Castner, the Senior Advisor on Firearms for New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, will speak at the event.

“Mr. Castner lends his considerable experience in legal and legislative matters to the screening of Making a Killing: Guns, Greed and the NRA,” said Freeholder Chairman Sergio Granados. “We hope that the film will inspire and inform next steps for action on common sense legislation aimed at reducing gun violence.”
