Second Amendment Foundation

Second Amendment Foundation

BELLEVUE, WA --(Ammoland.com)- Kris Koenig, Emmy award winning producer and writer, announced today the launch of Dead Patriot Films’ Kickstarter campaign www.kickstarter.com/projects/assaulted/assaulted to raise funds to produce Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire, the first in a series of documentaries focused on gun issues in America.

The Second Amendment Foundation and the Calguns Foundation have each contributrd $5,000.00 to get this project off the ground.

When the subject of California gun control laws are discussed, rarely are they associated with the civil rights movement and the quest for equal rights for all. Assaulted 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 will take a critical look at the original goals of the current laws in contrast with crime and murder statistics before and since their implementation; contrast these laws to those of the adjacent states; look at how product safety is used as indirect gun control; and show the ingenuity of gun owners to keep and bear their favorite firearms. Story threads will also look at the myriad of concealed carry permitting across the state to illustrate that not all residents are created equal. Finally, the film will show how California is the front line in the gun rights battle in America.

“I plan to show these issues through the eyes of the California gun owner,” said Koenig, “All too often documentaries regarding gun ownership and 2nd Amendment issues show the extremes of the arguments, polarizing the issues and inflaming viewers’ emotions. What I hope to do is to present a large dose of common sense, facts and logic to the subject matter, just like a science documentary.”

Koenig’s last project, 400 Years of the Telescope, a PBS Science Special, received five primetime national broadcasts by the network, along with international accolades, including a Best Director award and five Telly Awards. The film was produced to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the telescope and look to the future of astronomy, as new observatories being built will change our picture of the universe.

Answering the question of how a producer of astronomy content can take on a subject like gun control, Koenig said, “Science is a presentation of arguments, theories and facts to build the various models explaining the universe. I plan to present the models of gun control against the reality of life in America where the 2nd Amendment is alive and supported by a vast majority of Americans.”
