On December 11th, 2012, a shooter entered Clackamas Town Center Mall near Portland and opened fire with an STAG-15 assault-style rifle, killing two people and injuring one before taking his own life. Three days later, the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary further ignited the firestorm of national debate about gun safety in America. 101 Seconds intimately documents two Oregon families’ journeys from grieving survivors to hopeful gun safety advocates. As they confront the reality of gun politics, with Oregon in the leadership in the national conversation, the film reveals the deep tensions and persistent challenges in how to reduce the number of Americans—more than 30,000 annually—who die by gunfire.
