Like JimWest pointed out, there's a lot of historic images like lynchings and even some images of the holocaust. I think it would be best to see it yourself first and then decide if it's appropriate for your child.

Veggie-

Appropriate for 10yr old? Probably not so much because as others said, the lynching still pictures.

As to the F word... if you walk out when the credits start rolling, you'll miss that part. I did.

Ruger,
Yes Chengs comments left me sitting there going "HUH?"

I'm a bit disappointed that some people seem to think sheltering a 10 year old from history and life is the right thing to do. I remember seeing pictures of lynching in museums and history books. Are y'all the same ones who would "shelter" a 10 year old from observing a chicken with it's head on the chopping block instead of allowing them to learn how meat is procured?

Killing chickens is wrong. Everyone should only eat chicken that the store makes!

Well, we just returned from the 1:15 show - Dos Lagos, Corona. Took our son with us. We talked with him about it on the way up there and what he might see and why. His comments after the movie? "It was bloodier than Battlefield 3"; "They didn't teach us about the Black part in school"; and the classic "It was boring". I cringed a little at the lynching and Holocaust pictures, but will follow up with discussions with him about that.

There were a total of 8 people in the theater, including us. One family had two kids that were about my son's age. As suggested in an earlier post, if parents have any doubts, they can see if first themselves. I'm glad we took him, but that's just us.

Overall, it was a good review of the 2nd amendment and gives me more incentive to keep up to date with current events.

I see your point but I am to ignorant to fully understand it I believe. I hate waiting ten days but I am not opposed to it. Because I do not wish mentally unhealthy people, or people who believe themselves to be mentally unhealthy to have guns. If someone is not of sound mind, they can and will snap. Either leading to hurting themselves or others. Now do I believe the government should be solely in charge of who is sane and who is insane... f*** no. I have spread enough stuff on the net to get deemed insane. I believe an objective CIVILIAN doctor who has been approached by an individual and is deemed mentally unhealthy should be the judge. Not the government.

Oh and the loaded open carry is another thing I was happy to see get shot down this year. Not because I hate representing my freedoms, but others were just abusing that power to stir trouble with cops in California. I do not like irresponsible gun owners tainting all gun owners names. Though I believe cali should have been made a shall issue state with the turn of that law.

But like I said before, I may be too ignorant to understand all this fully. I am a young male who just two years ago found out I was not right about everything. I just have my stupid opinions

Xenos i hope you dont feel as if i was being condescending, just merely stating the point that even the "mentally ill" have inaliable rights. You dont want doctors and government policies dictating that....give you an example- with our last child the obgyn asked out of nowhere if we had firearms in the home.....that isnt a relevant question a obgyn needs to ask unless they have an agenda.
Second point- loaded open carry was banned in the 60s. Unloaded open carry waz banned 2 years ago. I know what you mean about those guys looking for a fight, a chip on the shoulder doesnt help us.
I encourage you to continue your quest in constitutional understanding as a young man, im on that same learning path

Overall, it was very good.

The people I saw it with thought that the "God and guns" song at the beginning would turn off a lot of people that weren't already pro-2A.

There was no need for Ted Nugent to be included - he may be a great musician, but he tends to be a bit polarizing, and say things that turn people off.

There really should have been a bit of background/explanation of what the 4th, 5th, 10th, and 14th Amendments are, since many people are only really aware of the 1st Amendment.

When comparing the full auto M-16 to the semi-auto AR-15, it would have been nice if the demonstrator hadn't rapid fired the AR - it would be nice to make it clear to the viewer that each shot was requiring a separate trigger squeeze (and shown it as such).


When explaining politically loaded terms like "Assault Rifle" and "Assault Weapon", the classic "Saturday Night Special" should probably have been mentioned.

The AWB of 1994, and it's repeal - with the FBI/ATF data that showed that it did nothing to prevent crime - should have been mentioned.

The "F Bomb" at the end could easily have been bleeped - it would still have been as funny, and everyone would have known what he said. It would also have kept the film appropriate for schools.

It would have been nice to have a list of "We contacted the offices of Senator Feinstein, Senator Schumer, etc., but they declined to be interviewed for the documentary". It is a simple technique that allows the documentary to seem much more impartial.

Do not worry I only take offense when people get rude. But that is a weird and totally unnecessary question for an OBGYN worker to ask. I understand our constitution and feel that we should act against our government in some way to get our natural rights back. But until people stop trying to pick fights that give others a bad name I am standing with no open carry of any kind. I also think that we are thinking of the "mentally ill" in different ways.

We saw the 5:00 PM show at Orange yesterday. Perhaps it was the early time, but there were only 4 others in the audience.

We enjoyed the movie. As someone who pays attention to this subject I'd say the movie didn't really break any new ground. If you could convince a 2A fence sitter to sit down and watch the movie it might change some minds. I don't think a dedicated anti-2A person would be swayed by the movie even in the unlikely event they sat through the entire movie.

I liked Ice-T's narration style. One of the reviews I read before seeing the movie complained about Ice-T (Wash Post I think). I think that comment was way off base.

All in all a great effort. Too bad it won't be seen by more people.

Assaulted was meh; it didn't flow well, it didn't deep dive on any subjects, and was generally kind of boring.

There were a few moments where my brain, also, wanted to lapse into the state it was in during high school history class but it was yanked back to attention because of the rest of the content. I felt it flowed very well, however. And as far as diving deep on any subjects, well then you reach the black hole of the general public mind where there is nothing there. So, I think the film accomplished its objective. Perfect no. But effective and delivered more than what I would have expected of the budget. Now they need to make another one.

How they all talk smack and then turn around and enjoy using guns themselves. They take stands against guns and then take parts in tv and movies where they use guns illegally too. Yeah okay, but then the politicians here are just as dumb and turn around and write laws just for the sake of shotgunning them to the walls. At the end, I heard the happy music starting, like, you just died and are on your way to heaven music and I was like, damn I think this is nearing the end of the movie. All in all, my attention was mostly captured by a documentary which speaks volumes because I HATE documentaries. Just not enough action and violence/ special effects in them...

I give the movie an 87 out of 100 or an 8.5 out of 10.
8.5 out of 10... that's about right.
The times I talked to Kris about the project when it was in progress, it sounded like a real expose on the CA gun rights battle. That may have been how it started, but it ended up nothing like that at all, and for that I was very disappointed.

I would have liked to see more abuse by the government, and more armed citizen videos. They mentioned the 2A many times, but no ideas on how to fight to protect it.

I disagree. The documentary showed quite a bit about how to fight government excesses - it featured members/leaders of civil rights groups who are taking on government overreach, as well as lawyers and legal scholars about the same issue. Just bringing the issue up and showing people what has happened in Athens, TN, during the Civil Rights movement, during the Rodney King Riots, and in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina should open some people's eyes.

If you want to watch a documentary about Americans engaging in armed conflict against the government in defense of their 2A rights, I recommend "Waco: The Rules of Engagement", but I will warn you that it does not have a happy ending.

The history of 2A and its current situation is tough to encapsulate into a 90 minute film - in fact it's impossible. Considering that truth "Assaulted" did an admirable job. It had several "chapters", 2A origins, semi vs. auto, civil rights (Blk. Panthers), tyranny (Athens), etc. Pretty much each chapter could easily be expanded into a full 90 minute doc by itself, so squeezing them all into one film wasn't easy, and no one is going to walk away satisfied that their personal beliefs were fully covered.

If there's one aspect I'd have liked to see handled differently it would have been the opposing viewpoint - there could have been more of it. I'm not afraid of opposing arguments because they are weak and easily defeated. Presenting more antis might help persuade the fence sitters that the film is fair, and in fairness our arguments win out.

I'd also have used more graphics. Properly presented graphics are very compelling and memorable. They also would have provided a little breathing room.

But all in all it was great film for the truth - well done!

Check the kick starter updates - but there is a 90 day delay after theatre release before they can ship a DVD or release for video on demand.

Keep in mind that the gun rights issues during production were very dynamic. If you start out with a plan for documenting CA issues, and then something like Sandy Hook happens in the middle of production, it is going to change the focus.

A dynamic environment it was, but if I have one criticism it's that removing the CA focus also removed much of the sense that civil rights really are under fire. Given that federal gun control is dead for the time being, the viewer gets a good history lesson but isn't really shown how the full on anti-civil rights assault will be coming to a state near them soon.

Default Movie

I saw the movie in San Diego a few weeks or more ago. I really enjoyed it. It made me very mad that our constitutional rights are being attacked like they are. Hopefully our politicians take note and stand up for us. I know mine in California sure as hell won't. Very good film and very informative! Well done people who worked on it!

What is being done to get this movie into sundance?

Also was there a speech at every movie? I went to a few also talked with people who went to others and only one place had a speech, personal views and opinions. Was there suppose to be more of the "introductions" to the movies or none at all or up to the people who helped get it into the theater?

This movie should have never been in theaters and should have aired on CCN MSNBC or the National Geographic Chanel. It should have done that and we would have captured the attention of more people and not wasted the move on movie theaters where no one was going to go watch them.

Yep, that's all we have to wait until the BluRay, DVD and Download of Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire will be available. On October 1st, the film will also be available on VOD (Video On Demand) platforms like cable, Amazon and iTunes.
