Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire Movie Reviews
User reviews on Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire
Even though I fundamentally disagree with the premise of this movie, I do think it is a valuable tool for two reasons; one, it always helps to keep an open mind on these kinds of hot button issues (i.e. gay marriage, abortion). And two, the film clearly elucidates what backers of the second ammendment think, all of which can be used by proponents of gun control to dismantle their arguments. It kind of makes me laugh that Ice-T, who used to be a thug, is using his celebrity to argue for more guns. Really? Why don't we just use d*** Cheney to argue for human rights. Puhlease. Even though I'm pretty sure the movie was funded by deep right wing pockets, the production values are pretty low and everyone who features in it comes off as paranoid or delusional. I think the days of the wild wild west are finally coming to a close. And amen for that!
Unless you're a total dolt, I don't see anyone getting persuaded by the arguments made in this movie against gun control. After so many hundreds of thousands of people have been gunned down in the streets and in broad daylight over the last decade, how anyone can oppose sensible gun laws is beyond me. Unless they're working for the gun lobby. Then I get it. But even that is sick. Why would you want to make money with the blood of innocents? I'm starting to go on a tirade so I'll stop (go ahead - flame me!). This movie is narrated by Ice-T and the basic argument is that we all have a right to carry guns because George Washington and Ben Franklin said so. Yeah...except they meant muskets and they were definitely not talking about oozies and the crazy military guns on the streets today. This is pure propaganda. Not recommended.
