assaulted.jpgThe Better Half and I still have property as well as many friends and relatives still living under the draconian anti-gun laws in California. That’s why we’re going to pledge support for the “Assaulted” film project. We might be California expatriates, but we still have to go there several times a year and would love for our second amendment rights to work there.

Kris Koenig, of Chico, CA, established a KickStarter project to raise funds to produce a film to be shown on PBS about how California is leading the way for liberals to disarm America. Kris provided a pretty interesting trailer for the film at the link below.

Excerpts from the Assaulted project website:

This film will reveal how California is the front line in the civil rights battle between public safety and the 2nd Amendment.

When the subject of California’s gun control laws are discussed, rarely are they associated with the civil rights movement and the quest for equal rights for all. 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 elitists and denies the rights guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment to the most vulnerable in our society.

The film takes a critical look at the original intent of the current California guns laws in contrast with crime and murder statistics before and since their implementation; and compares these laws to those of the adjacent states. Story threads also look at the myriad of concealed carry permitting processes across the state to illustrate that not all residents are treated equal.

We already have submitted our pledge and liked the project on Facebook.
