The documentary "The Armor of Light" is about an Evangelical minister and the mother of a teenage shooting victim who ask, is it possible to be both pro-gun and pro-life?
The film follows Evangelical minister Reverend Rob Schenck, an anti abortion activist and fixture on the political far right, as he tries to find the courage to preach about the growing toll of gun violence in America. Reverend Schenck is shocked and perplexed by the reactions of his long-time friends and colleagues who warn him away from this complex, politically explosive issue. On his mission, Rev. Schenck meets Lucy McBath, the mother of Jordan Davis an unarmed teenager who was murdered in Florida and whose story has cast a spotlight on “Stand Your Ground” laws. McBath, also a Christian, decides to work with Schenck even though she is pro-choice. Lucy is on a difficult journey of her own, trying to make sense of her devastating loss while using her grief to effect some kind of viable and effective political action where so many before her have failed.
