A new young, independent filmmaker is trying to secure financing for a documentary she hopes to produce over the next year having the title, “Girls Just Wanna Have Guns: The Real War On Woman” a clever take on a Cyndi Lauper classic pop tune.
Her name is Regis Giles.
If the last name strikers a chord, it’s because she’s the daughter of conservative writer and activist Doug Giles, who has authored books, penned commentary for numerous publications and blogs on his own website, ClashDaily.com.
But Regis Giles has carved a name out for herself as well, as a huntress, self-defense expert and National Rifle Association commentator, as well as making numerous TV appearances — and she’s only in her early twenties.
Now she’s adding “filmmaker” to the list, by teaming up with such veterans as director Judd Saul and producers Beverly Zaslow and Craig Bergman. Giles will serve as the film’s narrator and host, according to the international funding site Indiegogo.com, which states:
Today if you want to empower a woman, put a gun in her hand. The confidence from learning to shoot a firearm is far superior to anything one could ever imagine and it’s genuinely better than any gender studies course taught on college campuses today.
The filmmakers hope to dispel many of the myths surrounding gun ownership put out by mainstream media, leftwing politicians and liberal pundits, by providing the facts to moviegoers. These include:
Guns save more lives than they take.
As many as 2 million times each year law abiding citizens use guns to defend themselves against criminals. That’s almost 7000 times each and every day.
As many as 200,000 women use a gun every year to defend themselves against sexual attacks.
Women are the fastest growing demographic purchasing firearms today.
Those are the facts… and a gun in a woman’s hand is her best chance of survival.
The filmmakers have set a budget of $500,000 for what they estimate will be a 90-minute production, and are seeking financing from ordinary folks of a like mind who respect the Second Amendment.
In return, those who donate can expect to receive any or all of a number of goodies in return, including signed books, DVDs, and even film credits.
Grab the popcorn. This is one movie I’m looking forward to.
