A thousand excuses not to contribute, you only need one reason to do it.

I suggest this is important enough for a "special announcment" here on CGN.

As of 1418 09-15-2012 there were 171 backers for a total of $12858.

If 2000 more calgunners donate $25 each we'll hit this goal easy.
There's 1050 members online as I type this, 1495 guests.
Put off that purchase or skip lunch/dinner out and pledge!!!
Also, don't forget your credit card won't be charged until 10/05 and only if the goal is reached.

Not sure. Don't really know the structure of the boards. I'm guessing Kestryl and maybe a few other moderators have the ability. I was thinking along the lines of the CGN "giveaway" last year (1911). I recall being notified of that thread as soon as I logged on to the forum. Also, I thought that giveaway thread showed up at the top of most of the sub forums. If not that type of announcment at least a "notice" on the front page of the forums (see below)?



ETA:
I just reported my own post! I know it's not the appropriate use of the report button, sorry. Don't know how else to get the "powers" attention.

Kris, who is making the Assaulted documentary asked how to ask to get a "notice" posted on the boards, and I thought if a mod saw this maybe they'd know what to do or who to make aware. Sorry and thank you.

The general announcement is useful but many people use the New Posts direct link to the sub-forums so I have placed an announcement thread pointing to this thread that will show up at the top of each forum.

Pledged $100. Good luck!

ETA: It was the sticky that got my attention. I have known about the project since Interstellar brought it up way back when. I was skeptical at first, but if CGN is putting money up I am trusting this is bona fide. Kickstarter is an excellent way to do this by the way...again, good luck!

Tomorrow we will hit the halfway point in our campaign with just under 25% of our goal raised. Iím still confident we will reach our target.

This Sunday I will be on Let Talk Guns with Kate - http://katekruegertalkingguns.com and the YouTube gun crowd is just learning about our project. Bloggers are also starting to respond and we hope to see more of Assaulted on their pages. We also hope gun storeowners and FFLs will start participating as they will directly benefit from the message of our film.

All of the above will help, but you hold the key to our success!

If you can get three of your friends to match your donation, we will easily reach our goal. Just three! You could also double your donation and ask one friend to match it. Itís that simple.

Why should you? Because at no other time have we needed a film to clearly and calmly educate and state the importance of the 2nd Amendment in the American society. This is the film gun owners across the USA have wished for and you can make sure it gets made.

Please, email, text or call your shooting buddies and ask them to join you in this endeavor.

Thank you,

Kris

Has anyone approached the NRA or other gun rights groups about putting out a bulletin on this?

I know I get story updates from the gun groups I'm part of straight to my email, might be a way to drum up some money. I can't imagine many groups not being willing to support this for the little-to-no out of pocket expenses a link to the kickstarter and a paragraph would cost.

SAF.org is currently promoting the kickstarter on their front page. Nothing from the NRA.

I hate to say it, but as much as we need funds for this, with the NRA as a contributor, the perception of neutrality would go out the window for many viewers.

Agreed, but maybe at least notifying membership through an email blast etc could raise awareness. People just need to be made aware and we'll pull this off easy. In my mind this is as "grass roots" as you can get. A documentary literally funded by "the people".

This is basically what I'd like to see. The NRA could hurt the perception of neutrality, but I'd hate to see this not make funding. I've already plugged it about as much as I can without sticking flyers up around town (which I might do if anyone thinks it's worth it).

I'd just hate to see it die on the vine for lack of awareness.

Flyers you say?
Interstellar posted this: Assualted Kickstarter Flyer in another thread for our FFL's here:http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=617574

It doesn't look specific to retailers, so I'm assuming we could use it too.

I feel strongly that this can NOT die on the vine! We do still have time and it looks like it's gaining some momentum but we've gotta push this through with all our collective strength. Keep at it Calgunners!

Rock on. I like to do my errands and what not long after most people have gone to bed, so it shouldn't be too hard to just throw a roll of tape and a couple flyers in my bag when I'm out and about.

Keep in mind, it's not really going to be effective to just plaster flyers willy nilly. Also, don't break any local ordinances when posting these, litter will literally have the exact opposite effect we're looking for (piss people off). These flyers need to be distributed to "targeted" points e.g. ranges, local gun stores, sportsmen clubs etc.

edit to clarify:

I didn't mean this

about your comment, sorry.

It's just frustration/impatience. It's hard to see the threads "Should I buy the $600 eotech or the $800 aimpoint" and "Can I smoke pot and shoot at my neighbors cat" and "we'll never be free in California" then watch the kickstarter page and not see it moving up faster. Most of it's just me, need to calm down but part of it is real frustration that this is one of those golden oppurtinities to really tell the honest to God truth about a foundational freedom that any red blooded american should be able to stop the BS for five minutes or maybe hold off on buying that fancy new scope or the dang SCAR/ACR/416 and check this out and give $5, $10, $25... something.

I (and obviously others who have already contributed) return the appreciation to you. Also, I thank everyone who has contributed and those that will contribute. rant off

Listen to Kris' interview with Gun Owners of America! I would find it hard to second guess my will to donate to this film after listening to it. This film is a very common sense and composed approach to our second amendment rights!

Requires quicktime player to hear it!

I will be printing your flyers out tomorrow and going to the local gun ranges and gun stores to get the word out. It will be up to them if they want to check it out or not.

Good morning,

We've added a FFL package to the rewards. This package will get the FFL listed in the film's credits and 50 limited edition DVDs of the film for resale. Note, Kickstarter rule keeps us from listing the DVDs on the reward.

Please promote this to your favorite FFL.
