As the California legislature advances increasingly draconian gun control bills through the State Capitol, supporters of a documentary that initially began as a response to already restrictive laws in the Golden State, and then expanded to address the national post-Newtown anti-gun frenzy, will take their message to capitol dwellers in an exclusive, sold-out screening this evening. Assaulted: Civil Rights under Fire will be shown at 6 p.m. at Sacramentos Crest Theater, the California Association of Federal Firearms Licensees announced on its website.
Co-hosted by Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, whos already declared his candidacy for the 2014 gubernatorial election, the screening is being held inside the State Capitol, the group says, to educate members of the Legislature and staff about this historic civil rights struggle.
Gun Rights Examiner readers have been part of the core support for the documentary since the project was first introduced by producer Kris Koenig of Dead Patriot Films on the Kickstarter fundraising website, urging support throughout and reporting back to readers when fund-raising goals were met. With the release of the finished film, this column has also been a consistent voice sharing with readers how they can get involved to host screenings of their own.
This effort is not to be confused with Infringed, another pro-Second Amendment documentary announced in this column yesterday, which has also turned to Kickstarter to raise needed funds. As this column explained, there is plenty of room -- and need -- for all the opportunities gun rights advocates can create in order to counter the overwhelmingly anti-gun messages the public receives daily from a mass media establishment promoting a citizen disarmament agenda with the zeal of true

For example, when my insurance policies expire this fall, I intend to cancel my policies with METLIFE (NY) and LIBERY MUTUAL (MA). It's time to spend our resourses in states that respect our Rights.
I don't know how to get others on board, but that's what i'm doing ...
I’m sure all the rabid anti-gun pols will come watch the film and maybe change their minds. /sarc
Headline was hard to understand.
There should be two more gun liberty movies that are targeted to select audiences, one directed at blacks and the other at Latinos. Importantly, black and Latino pro-gun liberty conservatives should be the stars of their respective movies.
Not ironically, both movies should strongly emphasize both historical content, and be a little “highbrow” for both audiences. The reason for this is psychological, that the left always puts maximum emphasis on unthinking emotion, so being more intellectual oriented would contrast this, with the “cake and steak” analogy. That is, if all you are fed is cake, a little bit of steak tastes magnificent.
First, the black movie, it should be a history of gun control against blacks, starting with European colonists in Africa, then moving to America, clearly showing Democrat involvement with slavery, the Klan, the Jim Crow laws, segregation, and all the way advocating the essential need for the oppressors to keep guns out of the hands of black people so they could not defend themselves (again, against Democrats.)
Credentialed and dignified conservative black historians, all the way up to Justice Clarence Thomas and his passionate defense of the Privileges and Immunities Clause of the 14th Amendment as a critical defense of black civil rights.
The end result should be a strong distrust of Democrats, and a desire to obtain guns for self defense.
The Latino movie should emphasize the brutal and savage Mexican history, and how being deprived of guns made peaceful Indians and Mexicans prey for anyone and everyone. “You support us or die”, both sides proclaimed. Today, Latinos very strongly are in favor of gun control, not realizing that this leaves them helpless in the face of events like:
“The 1969 machine gunning of several hundred marchers by the authoritarian government in Mexico City. Both the possession of automatic weapons and the act of murder are as strictly forbidden by law in Mexico as they are in the U.S. Nevertheless, the police made no arrests - either on the scene or when the attackers later invaded the hospitals to finish off the wounded.”
Probably the best gun liberty message to Latino Americans is to point out how the drug cartels and government have turned northern Mexico into a killing field, and when honest citizens take up arms to defend themselves against the cartels, the *government*, above all things, wants to take the civilians guns away, leaving them helpless to be butchered.
From there, just extrapolating what happened in Mexico to the way Democrats want things to be in the US, could change a lot of minds about gun liberty.
The corrupt Mexican government officials are on the cartels' payroll; they can't afford to have civilians offing their benefactors.

I remember those days! It was found the USSR was secretly moving to overthrow the Government of Mexico.
Mexico quietly had their diplomats come home from the USSR, leaving one in Moscow, then they expelled the Russians. The Russians had no Mexican diplomats to expel and if they did expell the one there, it would break diplomatic relations with Mexico. They did not want that!
There were several riots by communists in which they used full auto .22 pistols. The news gave the name of the pistols but I don’t remember it. The pistols had an apple trademark stamped into the frame.
This also led to severe recriminations against all communist agitators by the Mexican police.
Yep. It was a nasty time!
I like your plan. You might add Connecticut too. . .
