Gun Talk Interview - T Minus 6 - Assaulted Update

Today, Tom Gresham on “Gun Talk Radio” out of Louisiana interviewed me regarding the film. This was quite an honor as Tom’s show is the most syndicated radio program dealing with firearms and hunting sports in America.

This interview came about because of the help of Gordon Hutchinson whom I met in Baton Rogue last December. Gordon is the author of “ The Great New Orleans Gun Grab” and showed us around Nola and introduced us to many of the victims of Katrina and the resulting gun grab by NOPD and regional/national law enforcement - real interesting interviews that will be part of the film.

After we departed New Orleans, Gordon reached out to Tom and told him about our film, so when I contacted to Tom on Thursday asking if he had time in his show to talk about Assaulted, he immediately responded with a “yes”. I know Tom’s positive reaction was due in part to Gordon’s actions. Thank you, Gordon.

You can hear the interview here http://guntalk.libsyn.com/guntalk-2013-02-10-part-b

Six days to go! Please keep the pressure on your friends and remember to “double and match”.

Onward!

Kris

I have read the entire thread and there are good points made. I am curious about the three year CCW. I would like to find out is that Butte county that issues for three?? We only get two years here in Lassen and I am looking now to see I thought it was California state law that two years was the maximum.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Bill

Come on folks, lets make this happen! This is a fine opportunity to be a part of such critical times! Lets make some positive history!

Dig deep, until it hurts! Because it might hurt worse if this projects outcome or release is compromised...

The $2.9 million dollar budget was highly controlled by Kris and whole project was delivered ahead of schedule

What what's your salary? What is the breakdown/costs? I'm open to donating, with openess.

I was under the impression this was a smałl budget film. How much was catering?

The budget for Assaulted is $175,000 not $2.9M, which was the budget for my last project 400 Years of the Telescope.

Default T Minus 5 - Breathe - Kickstarter Update

Just like in target shooting, breath control is critical when conducting a Kickstarter campaign. Shallow breathing or holding your breath in anticipation is not a good idea, especially when there is five more days until the end of the campaign. So, I’m taking a deep cleansing breath and diving into this update.

Here is the good news; we’re still trending ahead of our first campaign curve with fewer donors, but today is one of the most critical in the campaign. Today, we need to raise $3,000 to stay on track – our daily average has been $1,525. The ultimate target for the day is to reach 50% of our goal at $35,000. That means doubling our efforts to get our friends to join us and/or doubling pledges.

For those just joining our effort, we were at 40% of our goal five days out on our first campaign, so we have faith that we can repeat that successful performance with everyone’s help; especially since last month, when our 2nd Amendment rights came under an unprecedented attack at the states and federal levels. With your help we can create a film that can change attitudes and turn the tide in this current crisis.

Past donors from the first campaign, please consider matching your original pledge. You had faith in our effort before the 2nd Amendment became a piñata at Feinstein’s reelection party – I hope you still do.

“Double and match” are the final words I will type today. Well, actually “today” was the final word. No, “word” was...breathe, boy, breathe.

^^ Thanks SigSour5888, it all helps! ^^

Ted Nugent just posted about the film on his Facebook. Anita can't stop dancing around the office - something about wanting to marry him back in 1978.

That's awesome Kris! Love that shot with Anita and Ted Nugent.

He's going to be at the State of the Union speech too. Great timing to have him post about the film when that is going on too. Lots of cross over and potential traffic to Kickstarter hopefully.

Doubled my pledge today.

Donated on the first and second campaign. There's no ammo or guns to buy right now, so there are no excuses.

Closing in on today's goal of reaching $33,000 - only $1,300 more or $3,300 to reach the halfway point.

Thanks Acolytes, Calebgold and Mattmattmatt - it all helps!

Default Giving it another bump.

Everybody,

I have met Kris and Anita, they are the real deal, if they weren't I wouldn't have sent them another 100 bucks.

I realize times are hard on many of us, but if not you, then who?
The battle for our rights starts with each of individually.

If we as individuals "lack the resources" to fight a War on our Own for gun rights, then the smart thing to do is donate our time and money to those who do have a plan in action and are doing something.

Kris and Anita's film was started around the time of Sen Yee's SB249.
It was dumb luck that they were already in production when all the current crap hit.

Many of you may be hesistant about donating to this film, some may say it isn't going to do any good, so why bother.

I say that if Alan Gottlieb, Gene Hoffmang and many other gun rights leaders are blessing this project, this is a project we MUST support.

Like it or not, to my knowledge there isn't a project like this that is this far along in production. It's now or never guys.

Nicki

We can't/won't do that. This is meant to be a 100% grassroots effort. No big names or famous folks involved in this one, period. It would undermine the credibility of the film if the NRA and/or Ted Nugent donated even a penny.

Kickstarter Update - Minus 4

Tonight is the State of the Union Address and we will hear the arguments for limiting 2nd Amendment rights in the name of public safety. We will hear statements that the conservative wing of our government must do the right thing and pass comprehensive gun control legislation. As Gene Hoffman of the CalGuns Foundation said at the close of the trailer, “It’s not about being a republican. It’s not about being a democrat. It’s about respecting the Bill of Rights.”

Help us finish this film to teach that the 2nd Amendment is a civil right and must be respected as such.

To do that, we must work together to see this campaign funded. We’re just under 50% of our goal, which means we have the ability to make our goal by applying the following simple steps:

1) Donate if you haven’t.
2) Double your donation if you already made one or
3) Have a friend match your donation.
4) Share this project link http://kck.st/VZmXBM on Twitter and on your Facebook today and everyday until Saturday night.

Today is the day to "double or match"!

Thank you,

Kris

I know you can change your reward anytime up to the close of the campaign. Is that your question?

We had 240 CalGunners donate in the first round and only 90 so far in the second.

Lunch bump for the heroes of CalGuns!

Donate $150 and get a Challenge Dog Tag in Chris Kyle memory!

Uncle Sam and his taxes can wait for the moment, this is much more important. Best of luck making the Kickstarter goal; can't wait to see the completed film!

As much as I like cool swag I appreciated what a razor thin margin you are operating on.
You are doing some awesome work.
