El Tiempo Latino Unveils  “Amo mi Pistola” (I Love my Gun,) Second Episode of the “Tiroteo made in USA” Docu-series

by | Feb 27, 2024

  • The short documental about guns is available at El Tiempo Latino’s YouTube channel. The audiovisual piece is in Spanish and English with English subtitles.
  • “Amo mi Pistola” features a diverse array of voices, including experts, activists, gun enthusiasts, and a firearms instructor.

El Tiempo Latino released “Amo mi Pistola” (I Love my Gun,) the second episode in its short documentary series “Tiroteo made in USA,” exploring the intricate dynamics of America’s fascination with firearms in a nation with more guns than people.

“Amo mi Pistola” scrutinizes the economic, political, cultural, and social ramifications of gun ownership in America, painting a picture of a country caught between the right to bear arms and an escalating tide of gun violence.

Featuring a diverse array of voices, including experts, activists, gun enthusiasts, and a firearms instructor, “this documentary aims to explore the foundational elements behind this disturbing trend,” remarks Marcos Marín, CEO of El Tiempo Latino and the narrator of this documentary. “Firearms are the leading cause of death among children and teenagers in the U.S., setting us apart from any other developed country,” added. 

This audiovisual piece, about nine minutes long with english captions, delves into how gun ownership is deeply entangled with concepts of masculinity, compelling millions to covet firearms like the infamous AR-15. It also explores distinctive digital platforms such as “Date A Gun Lover,” which serves as a meeting ground for enthusiasts eager to bond over their mutual fascination with firearms.

The docu-series not only illuminates one of America’s most divisive issues but also invites viewers to critically assess what “freedom” means in a country measured by bullets, but at the same time reflect about the repercussions of what that entails.

Manuel Oliver, father of Joaquín, a seventeen-year-old victim of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida shares his point of view: “I think we should all agree that the right to life is above the right to carry a weapon, especially when we are talking about innocent people like my son Joaquín who was at school when he was murdered with an assault weapon that destroyed his body.”

While usually viewers might expect neutrality from an editorial piece, El Tiempo Latino aims to clearly denounce the ease of access to lethal weapons that could end up at schools and crowded areas full of innocent bystanders. 

This thought-provoking episode is now available on El Tiempo Latino’s YouTube channel. During 2024 “Tiroteo made in USA” docu-series will continue offering content related to armed violence in the United States and its repercussions, particularly from the Latino viewpoint.
