  • Media's Emotional Reaction to Gun Tragedies Fueled 2nd Amendment Doc

    When Anita Ingrao and I started to create Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire, it was to be produced for local television and not a feature-length film. We never intended to take on the history of the 2nd Amendment and the debate on guns in our society, but our production timeline intersected with the tragic events of Aurora and Newtown shootings. The emotional reactions of the media and those by government officials surrounding events directly related to mental health problems illustrated the need for a logical, fact-based film on guns in America. The genesis of the film came during the production...

    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 Sacramento’s Crest Theater, the California Association of Federal Firearms Licensees announced on its website. Co-hosted by Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, “who’s already declared his candidacy for the 2014 gubernatorial election,” the screening is...
  • Ice-T: Gun Rights Are Civil Rights

    Rapper Ice-T has narrated a documentary that frames the gun control argument in language the left has long avoided--gun rights are civil rights. In other words, they are rights inherent to American citizens. Or as the HHS.gov website puts it: "Civil rights are personal rights guaranteed and protected by the U.S. Constitution." Therefore, just as rights to speak freely, to vote, and to practice one's religion are civil rights, so too are the rights embodied in the 2nd Amendment. This is the central point of the documentary, Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire. The documentary accomplishes this by showing that the...
  • Film Review: ‘Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire’

    Variety ^ | 26 June, 2013 | Joe Leydon
    Provocatively framing the ongoing gun-control debate in terms of self-defense and historical precedent, the aptly titled “Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire” is unmistakably and unabashedly pro-gun ownership, but surprisingly non-shrill and sobersided as it builds its case against what documaker Kris Koenig clearly sees as unnecessary, if not unconstitutional, government restrictions on firearms. Pic likely won’t reach beyond its presumed target audience of ticketbuyers already in sync with its underlying message, but it could attract a more diverse viewership, and perhaps even change a few minds, in ancillary venues.

    UPDATED — The Bellevue-based Second Amendment Foundation has joined forces with the Calguns Foundation in a fund-raising effort supporting the production of a pro-gun documentary called Assaulted – Civil Rights Under Fire. The documentary is a project by Kris Koenig of Chico, Cal., and it concentrates on the erosion of gun rights in the Golden State. However, the story could apply to anywhere that the gun prohibition lobby has relentlessly chipped away at the Second Amendment. It is being done by Dead Patriot Films. According to SAF Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb, the plan is to raise at least $65,000...

We planted many large olive trees and hooked...

    ELKHART -- A 23-year-old man facing jail time for a probation violation assaulted a 74-year-old bailiff before escaping from the Elkhart County Courts Building on Wednesday, according to authorities. Aaron Macon appeared Wednesday afternoon in Superior Court 6 regarding a probation violation on a felony charge of marijuana possession. Judge David Bonfiglio found Macon had violated his probation by failing a drug test and told the defendant to sit and wait for a court security officer to take him into custody, Bonfiglio said. "We always make them sit in the jury box until the officer comes up," he said. Macon...
