Warm Guns is a documentary short that explores America's gun culture through explorations of masculinity by way of kitsch yet meaningful art. The collection of work aptly named 'Happiness Is A Warm Gun' is an artist's way of making a statement. We follow artist Natalie Baxter as she continues her work in preparation for her first 'Gun Sew' in NYC.
