Award-winning filmmaker Peter Jay Gould is now developing INFRINGED: Second Amendment in the Crosshairs, a new feature-length documentary designed to separate fact from fiction in today's gun rights debate.
"Our plan is to create a captivating, compelling, feature-length film comprised of dramatic historical reenactments, including a passionate presentation of the Founding Fathers' original debate over the Bill of Rights," said Gould. "We'll track through the years, right on up to today, showing how the Second Amendment has served as the linchpin protecting all our other liberties." All historical re-creations will be shot on location and feature actors speaking dialogue adapted from the Founding Fathers' own personal writings.
The project will additionally include illuminating interviews with leading Constitutional scholars—including Independent Institute Research Fellow Stephen P. Halbrook, author of the acclaimed forthcoming book, Gun Control in the Third Reich: Disarming the Jews and "Enemies of the State"—as well as revealing TV news clips and crime re-creations.
To ensure a comprehensive consideration of the issue, Gould and his crew plan to interview law enforcement officials and victims of crime and fact-check talking points on both sides of today's gun control debate. "We'll show which are based in reality and which on politically-inflamed emotion," Gould continued.
