Debbie is not just opposed to the gun: she is obsessed with it. Skippy, their neighbour, is a mysterious and possibly untrustworthy guy, with a crush on Debbie. One night, he appears at their kitchen window, asking to borrow the gun My New Gun details the chain events triggered when a housewife becomes the reluctant owner of a handgun given by her husband. A wry commentary on marriage, protection and suburban America.
