GOOD GUYS WITH GUNS – Progress Report 2-4-2018
Survey: 55% want the film to address the MILITIA SYSTEM
By filmmaker James Jaeger
As many of you know, we recently sent out a 3-question survey. Thank you for your input, it was loud and clear.
Here is a summary of the survey results:
55% want to address the MILITIA SYSTEM.
24% want to address ACTIVE SHOOTINGS.
18% want to address the INDIVIDUAL RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR.
3% want to address OTHER SECOND AMENDMENT ISSUES.
4% want to confront the NRA.
7% do NOT want to confront or criticize the NRA.
89% did not mention the NRA one way or another.
GOOD GUYS WITH GUNS needs to focus on both the Constitutional “Militia System” AND the “individual right to keep and bear” as interrelated solutions to the active shootings (“mass shootings”) and we don’t need to bring the NRA into the issue at this time.
Given the results of this survey, I am sorry I have configured this project not as accurately as I could have and you will see changes in, not only the narration script and the third trailer — but in the title of the movie, which is now:
GOOD GUYS WITH GUNS
How the Second Amendment Can Stop Mass Shootings

As mentioned in earlier Progress Reports, we have a great cast of experts lining up. This includes INTERNATIONAL FREEDOM FORCE Founder and RED PILL EXPO promoter, G. EDWARD GRIFFIN. If you have ever seen him in any of our previous films, you know no one lays out the razor-sharp truth cleaner and more succinctly than G. Edward Griffin.
Other RON PAUL REVOLUTIONARIES who have opted into the production are JEANETTE FINICUM, CYNTHIA McKINNEY and DAVE KOPACZ.
As many of you know JEANETTE FINICUM’s late husband, Lavoy Finicum, was a GOOD GUY WITH A GUN before he was gunned down by government agents. Instead of protecting Americans’ right to “keep and bear,” the government considered LaVoy Finicum a “bad guy” because he believed in the Militia System as specified in the Second Amendment.
Also with us is six-term Represenative, CYNTHIA McKINNEY, a rising star from the Left side of the political aisle. Rep. McKinney is a true believer in all of the Second Amendment as a Constitutional requirement for, not only self-defense, but for the “Security of a free State” which only a revitalized Militia System can bring.
And last but not least DAVE KOPACZ, former State Chapter President of the National Federation of Republican Assemblies and President of the Massachusetts Republican Assembly, a Constitutional Conservative Organization. Welcome aboard Dave! I’m sure no one has a greater appreciation for “good guys with guns” than you do.
So here’s a summary of the Freedom Cast to date, in alphabetical order:

The mass shootings across the nation must stop. Responsible citizens armed with modern weapons is the first step. That these citizens are trained and retain their legal right to “conceal carry” at private and public events is a necessary component of the solution. Finally, educating the public about what “good guys with guns” — what the Founders called “well regulated Militia” — is vital.
Unfortunately, the subject of the Militia System is not well understood by much of the U.S. public. And thanks to propaganda from the “gun control” lobby and their mouthpieces in the Mainstream Media, the very word “militia” has been distorted, vilified and bastardized. One of the key goals of this movie is to change this by showing how a modern militia is more relevant and necessary than ever — especially in this day of escalating mass shootings.
We discussed some of these things in previous films, especially MOLON LABE and MIDNIGHT RIDE, but it seems further explanation is required. This film will keep this discussion alive by addressing GOOD GUYS WITH GUNS as a working demonstration of the Militia System set up by the Founders. Were WE THE PEOPLE to bring back the Founders’ MILITIA SYSTEM we would be able to solve the mass-shooting problem in America WITHOUT turning us into a POLICE STATE.
If you’re still not sure where we are going with this film, please take a look at the Seventh Draft of the narration script such at http://www.good-guys.us/gg_script.pdf
The narration script and the documentary are inspired by THIRTEEN WORDS — a book written by Edwin Vieira, Jr. Dr. Vieira, with four degrees from Harvard, is one of the foremost Constitutional attorneys in the nation. Among his many other books on the U.S. Constitution are The Sword and Sovereignty and By Tyranny Out Of Necessity – all available at Amazon.com.
Again, please consider the changes we are making in the focus and theme of this movie and if they meet with your approval, help us complete this production by donating what you can afford at www.good-guys.us/donate As thanks, we will acknowledge you with a “producer,” “executive producer,” “associate producer,” “production associate” or “production assistant” screencredit on the finished movie commensurate with your donation.
Early donors will be prominently acknowledged, not only in completed movie, but in pre-release trailers. With these things in mind, let me say there is still a prominent “Executive Producer” screencredit available in the MAIN titles of the movie for that donor of means who will allocate $10,000 to the production budget. See sample. This would really help us get this production moving.
Lastly, for those of you who want to keep their donation totally confidential, we have placed a new “ANONYMOUS DONATION” button up at the donation URL.

Again, the mass-shootings that have been plaguing the nation must be addressed and stopped. The producers and sponsors of this film believe the only way they can be stopped is with “good guys with guns.” This means WE THE PEOPLE should encourage our gun organizations to step up training in the proper handling of arms appropriate to stave off attacks. This means WE THE PEOPLE should also petition our state representatives to revitalize the Militia System in each of the 50 “several” states. It is vital that first 13 words of the Second Amendment -– a Constitutional Militia – be applied, not just the last 14 words — the individual right to keep and bear.
GOOD GUYS WITH GUNS will be our 9th feature-length documentary. All of our movies are public service projects and you can screen all of them for free at www.HomeVideo.net or get them on higher-quality DVD at www.MoviePubs.net
Again, thank you for helping make these films possible. You are greatly appreciated. A “free state” and “a more perfect union” are made possible by men and women who care.
P.S. Please forward this Progress Report to your family, friends and associates. The more people who know about these films, the more new people will chip in to make them possible.
GOOD GUYS WITH GUNS
Each time there’s a mass-shooting at a church, school or public place it takes the police about 11 minutes to get there. The shooting is usually over in 5 minutes.
Then, predictably the same “gun-control” lobby comes out and advocates yet more infringements of the Second Amendment. More gun-free zones, more registration, more limits on weapons and accouterments that could save lives.
GOOD GUYS WITH GUNS explores the reasons the Founding Fathers gave WE THE PEOPLE a means of protecting ourselves, not only through the “individual right to keep and bear,” but through “good guys with guns” — what they called “well regulated Militia.” Given this, ALL of the Second Amendment should be applied to stop “active shooters” and secure the blessings of liberty.
Inspired by the works of Edwin Vieira, Jr., author of Thirteen Words, The Sword and Sovereignty and By Tyranny Out of Necessity
