I'm new to your board so I hope you don't mind me introducing myself to you in this way.
My partner and I are Emmy award winning producers from Northern California. Two years ago we started working on a film about street gangs invading rural California. Due to my repeated contact with gang members, it was recommend that I obtain a CCW permit - which I did. The process led to me learn about the backward gun laws of California compared to the rest of the Union. Through research I discovered that there has never been a positive documentary about the 2nd Amendment and gun ownership in America.
Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire will be such a film. Supported by the CalGuns Foundation and Second Amendment Foundation, this PTV/PBS documentary will look at how California is the front line in gun control battle. The film will look at the current assault weapon ban proposals in California and Washington, DC, as well as, CCW permitting across the USA.
Here are a few links to learn more about the film:

Thanks for reading this post.
Looks interesting. The link to the examiner article produces a 404 error.
As an FYI there's a thread on Calguns verifying this project:

I would be very interested in seeing the final production if aired. Please post it if it happens. It sounds very much like a PBS program.

I like what I'm reading, please keep us posted on progress. Naturally we'd like to see the finished product.
Helpful hints on pushing back and strengthening the 2A:
Sounds wonderful. If it's going to give the 2A, its misapplication/misinterpretation and ramifications a fair airing, I'm all for it. Definitely notify, when it's complete and being presented.
Based on the trailer, this is something I would be very interested in seeing.
Be careful boys, the PBS connection give me a eerie Trojan Horse kinda' feeling. When's the last time you saw anything even marginally pro-2nd Amendment on Public Television? With all due respect, I somehow can't imagine Bill Moyers or Dennis Wholey with a EDC.
There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.
Hopefully, DeadPatriot's group has thought of all of that, long before going down this road.
Pretty cool. I'm interested. Thanks for your work.

Welcome, from Long Beach, Los Angeles County, Deadpatriot. I don't have a problem with PBS except that government doesn't have a legitimate purpose in funding mass media. But your grassroots project is impressive, and we need for people to see our side and, as PBS does so well, get viewers to consume actively our message. Thank you for this work that you are doing.
