    A World War II veteran suffered an injury while defending his home’s American flag from assailants who pushed him to the ground. Howard Banks heard a noise outside his home and went out to investigate. Banks is legally blind. With his limited vision, he observed someone taking down the American flag flying outside his Kaufman, Texas, home, CBSDFW reported. The incident occurred on July 11, shortly before his 92nd birthday. Because of prior acts of vandalism, Banks decided to defend his flag. Previous vandals shredded his American and Marine Corps colors. “They could see me. I couldn’t see them,” Banks...

    The French National Bureau of Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism (BNVCA) reported that two Jewish teens were assaulted and robbed while leaving a synagogue in Marseille, and as a result of the attack required medical treatment. The attack by two assailants "of African origin" according to the victims occurred on Tuesday. There are many Muslim African immigrants in France, increasing the likelihood of religious hatred being a prime motivator in the crime. Making that likelihood undeniable is the fact that before attacking, the assailants said "dirty Jews, we will exterminate all of you," according to the teens. One of the teens told...

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

    11/27/2013 2:29:26 PM PST · by marktwain · 2 replies ^ | 26 November, 2013 | Kris Koenig
    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

    07/06/2013 10:47:15 AM PDT · by marktwain · 25 replies ^ | 5 July, 2013 | AWR Hawkins
    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 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...

    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.

    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.

    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.

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...
