Default 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.

To be honest, right now my focus is getting the production off the ground and film made. That said, I love guns and I will contribute to the forum when I can.

Just curious, will you be involving John Lott in your film? He wrote the book "More Guns, Less Crime". He's a top-shelf analyst who uses the complete FBI database over a several year period covering most states to evaluate the relationship between gun ownership and crime deterrence.

By the way, just watched the trailer. Awesome. I donated. I think it's worth it.
