Gun Violence, Firearm Safety & Injury Prevention

Gun violence in television, feature films and music videos is one of the most talked about social issues relating to our industries. As always, EIC supports the freedom of creative artists to show and tell their stories the way they think best fits their story.

Still, with deaths and injuries by gun violence so high in our country, EIC urges entertainment creators to consider paying special attention to the details in firearm-related scenes. The first step in doing so is to read up on the realities of gun violence.

If you’re suffering from writer’s block, take a look at our depiction suggestions. Finally, EIC congratulates winners of the EDGE Awards, which recognize outstanding depictions of gun violence, safety and injury prevention in entertainment.

If you would like to speak to an expert on firearm safety and injury prevention, or set up a free briefing for you, your production or studio, contact EIC’s First Draft service.
