Gun Rights Examiner: ‘Blood on their hands’ seeks to document truth about Fast and Furious

“We have launched our new film project ‘Blood on their Hands,” COPS (Citizen’s Organization for Public Safety) Productions CEO Mike McNulty writes in an email to friends and supporters introducing an effort to fund and produce  a documentary on government misdeeds resulting in Operation Fast and Furious “gunwalking” crimes.

This needs to happen.  I wish it could happen before the election, but that’s not realistic.

That said, the film may not get made. Funding for documentaries has always been difficult to obtain without well-resourced backers, and interest in the film community and among their foundation and individual benefactors in exposing the government’s part in sanctioning “gunwalking” is practically nonexistent. In order to deal with that reality, McNulty has turned to us.

He’s established a budget goal of $389,500 which he explains on a “Kickstarter” fundraising page where he’s soliciting individual contributors like you to back this project. Minimum donations start at $1, with progressive contributor thresholds and incentives.  It will only be funded if the budget goal is met by May 24, 11:33 pm EDT.  Importantly, because the question is a natural, albeit a pessimistic one, per Kickstarter policy, “if the project falls short no one is charged.”

I’m in for at least $50.  I might kick in more in a couple weeks.  Given the size of the 2nd Amendment community, there is no excuse for this to not be funded. At the time this was posted, the project has $224, mine included.
