    Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire - Documentary

    Good day,

    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.

    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.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    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.

    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.

    Good point. So long as PBS doesn't exert influence or demand control over editing (ie, Exec Producer type control), it might be about as good as we can hope for. Still, I don't imagine an affiliate needs to air the thing if they're died-in-the-wool antis. Depends on the PBS/station contract lingo, I'd imagine.

    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.

    I have to go with you on this one. Very little truth comes out of PBS now days and anything to do with weapons is going to be slanted

    Maybe we should wait as see the outcome before selling it off. Just saying................

    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.
