The Gun Game Show

The game delivers a shocking amount of statistical data in a lively format, leaving the audience with an informed body of information. It is neither pro-gun nor anti-gun, but rather, factually based data, drawn from current news sources. Contestants are chosen from the audience and each team gets the the audience row in front of which they stand.

gungame_03With twelve categories of Gun Etiquette, questions are asked of the participants and the audience. For instance, within the “school” category, the question might be, “In what state are university students allowed to carry concealed weapons into class?” Or, for the family category, “What is the most common location for a pistol kept in a home for protection and safety?”

Prizes and awards are given out at the finale of the game.
