Spectrum Networks to Air 'Faith and Firepower' a 30-Minute Special on Gun-Related Violence in Texas on March 1 at 8 PM
A Live Half-Hour Town Hall Will Air Immediately Following
Austin and San Antonio, Texas – Spectrum Networks today announced it will present "Faith and Firepower," an exclusive documentary that will take an in-depth look at how gun violence has impacted and shaped faith-based communities in Texas. "Faith and Firepower" will air on Spectrum News Austin and Spectrum News San Antonio on March 1 at 8 pm, followed by a live half-hour town hall from Sutherland Springs.
Hosted by Spectrum News Reporter John Salazar, "Faith and Firepower" will feature stories of local communities affected by gun-related violence, including interviews with survivors of the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs shooting, the deadliest church shooting in U.S. history. The 30-minute special will also examine the stories of residents who have decided to take a more active approach to securing their church congregations while others prefer that guns stay outside of places of worship.
