The producer of a documentary on the civil right to keep and bear arms has posted a trailer in advance of the film’s release that provides a powerful, timely and resonating counter to the ongoing media frenzy pushing for citizen disarmament edicts.
Kris Koenig, Emmy award-winning producer and writer, and founder of Dead Patriot Films, Inc., which is producing “Assaulted, Civil Rights under Fire,” has been the driving force behind an effort to provide an all-encompassing look at the individual right recognized by the Second Amendment, both from an historical perspective and as a contemporary societal necessity.
“This film will compare the historical aspects of gun control targeting the indigenous tribes of North America and emancipated slaves, through the Jim Crow era to today’s laws that favor rich elitists and denies the rights guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment to the most vulnerable in our society,” the film’s website explains. “This documentary takes a critical look at the original intent of the current guns laws across the nation in contrast with crime and murder statistics before and since their implementation; and compares these laws to those currently proposed by the President and various states.”
Fundraising for the project was the topic of a Gun Rights Examiner column from September of last year, and happily, readers of this column joined with many other supporters to help the production achieve its initial $65,000 goal. But that doesn’t mean further help is not needed, and donations for production and post-production expenses are still being solicited. In case anyone is wondering, I’ve put my money where my mouth is and have not only helped publicize this project, but have also donated to it.
I urge readers of this column to see the sidebar video player to take two minutes to watch this intellectually and viscerally-compelling preview of things to come, and then, as Koenig asked his Twitter followers earlier this morning, “Help us take our trailer to the masses.”
I believe after watching it, you’ll recognize what a truly powerful counterweight to the anti-gun media this can be if we all do our part to help out and let others know about it.
