    Hi,

    It's been a while since we were on the board so we thought we should update you all on the film, how it's been received and how you can see it. We would also like to thank all of you that help make this film a reality.

    Here is our current press release and new trailer:

    ASSAULTED: CIVIL RIGHTS UNDER FIRE
    HITS 100 MILLION HOMES OCTOBER 1st​

    The debate over public safety versus gun rights that has taken place on national news programs, and in state and federal legislatures over the past nine months is now heading into living rooms across America. “Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire”, a 79-minute documentary (PG-13) that brings audiences to the center of the controversy over guns in America, is scheduled to be released October 1st on digital platforms, cable and satellite TV, and in DVD at better brick and mortar and online retailers October 15th. The film takes a step back from the normal public discourse that is filled with emotional rhetoric, to offer unique perspectives on the Second Amendment’s significance in American society while taking a critical look at current gun laws and their effect on public safety and civil rights.

    Created by two-time Emmy winning producer and writer Kris Koenig (“400 Years of the Telescope,” the upcoming “Fight for Space”) and co-produced by Eric Katzenberg (“Secrets of Navy SEALS,” “American Guns”), the film is narrated by critically acclaimed rapper and actor Ice-T (“Law and Order: SVU”).

    With the original intent of empowering a citizenry to defend itself against a corrupt or tyrannical government, the concept behind the Second Amendment may seem farfetched today. “Assaulted” weaves together such narrative threads as the post-World War II Battle of Athens and the Deacons for Defense of the Civil Rights Movement with more recent events, including the abandonment of Koreatown during the Rodney King Riots and the heavy-handed action taken by public officials during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, to show that tyranny comes in many forms.

    With the purpose of igniting a meaningful gun control conversation, as opposed to adding to the existing rhetoric, “Assaulted” sought out constitutional historians, lawyers, law enforcement, educators, anti-violence leaders, gun rights activists and gun owners to lend their voices to the film. The result is more than 30 interviews from advocates on both sides of the argument.

    What the critics think about “ASSAULTED ”

    “‘Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire’ is a reasoned counter to Michael Moore's ‘Bowling for Columbine’ and, as such, a constructive addition to the current national firearms debate.” – Los Angeles Times

    “‘Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire’ comes across as too thoughtful and well researched – in short, too reasonable — to be easily dismissed as mere agitprop.” – Variety

    “[The film’s] real purpose is to bring some historical perspective to the argument, to move the conversation beyond emotion-based rhetoric.” – LA Weekly

    “…along the way, the film provides some interesting food for thought that elevates the discussion.”

    “Assaulted isn't a one-sided documentary popped out of the Michael Moore mold. The film talks to a variety of sources, from fervent gun rights activist Ted Nugent to Dan Gross, the President of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.” – Breitbart

    “Testifies to the vital importance of gun ownership” - Hollywood Reporter

    Just ordered my copy. A friend of mine sent me an e-mail telling me to check it out, and I bumped into this thread. Sounds like an eye opener to me.

    Amen. I religiously avoided putting my numbers on the internet for years, and then this year I let my stepson talk me into using an online service to do a will. I had to supply my SS number. Within days I found that my identity had been stolen when the perp tried to add 3 phone numbers to my Verizon account, using my name and SS number. I signed up for an identity protection service and have to watch my credit info like a hawk.

    I checked out the reviews on Amazon and they were few so far, but all gave it high marks. And the reviews seemed to be pretty well written. So I ordered a copy.

    No, I didn't fall for that. I went to my bank and filled out a bunch of paperwork. Now I get emails telling me if all is well or if somebody tried to access my bank accounts, or applied for credit, or used my SS number. Also, I'm supposed to get a phone call if somebody is trying to do any transaction in my name, and there is a bunch of personal questions to answer to verify my identity. It is hooked into the 3 credit bureaus so if any financial or commercial business checks with them, they send me an alert. Not perfect, but at least I can get a heads up.
