Default Looking for Sac CCW Holder's Perspective for Documentary

Hi all,

I'm working on a documentary on modern-day gun ownership and was hoping to get the perspective of CCW license holders in the Sacramento Area.

Would anyone be interested in talking about what it means to you to carry a concealed weapon and share what a normal day in the life of a legal gun carrying citizen is?

You can reply in the thread or email me at saccityfilms@outlook.com

Thank you,
Jonah Paul

What is your intent with the film?

With all due respect, it is odd that your first post here is requesting firearms carriers to share their intimate lives with you for media purposes.

In case you haven't sensed the vibe, we don't exactly trust the film industry.

Can we get some more information on this documentary? What exactly are you trying to document? The process? A day in the life? How 2A affects me? Why we should or should not carry?

Their is almost no benefit for us to work with you on this project because most gun related documentaries have a very clear negative 2A agenda and tend to spout all kinds of fear, uncertainty and doubt through deceit.

Welcome. Please post your credentials in the open as well as who is funding the film and your target audience.

What assurance do you offer, if and when someone chooses to work with you, that EXACTLY what is said, VER BATIM, will be aired in its ENTIRETY in your documentary and not cherry picked for what suits your agenda, assuming you have one.

In fact, go here and post an intro. in this thread. Looking forward to reading it.

Any chance this is you? https://www.linkedin.com/in/jonah-paul-41a6274a

It seems similar inquiries are happening throughout the State (see link below) No doubt due in part to the flood of new Anti-2A bills recently signed However, it is probably not in our best interest to discuss anything 2A with media, journalists or the like.

Jonah, a couple of observations on your request.

First, "modern day gun ownership" is a completely separate issue from CCW. Obviously, a CCW holder owns a modern day gun, but the vast majority of legal, legitimate gun owners in this state do not have a CCW. Some don't feel the need and many don't have the opportunity due to restrictive policies of their issuing agencies.

Second, folks with CCWs have a tendency to want to remain anonymous. It makes no sense for us to put our names and faces on media, allowing others to recognize us in public as having a gun. That pretty much defeats the idea of "concealed".

Finally, I know of no one who wants to record, "This is me, I have a gun, and I am in these places on a daily basis at these times."

Until you can provide some insight into how your production would alleviate these concerns, I really don't think you'll get much traction here.

Best.

I live in Contra Costa County. I can talk to you about how I can't get a CCW in this county. How's that for modern day gun ownership?

OP, where did you go? I was looking forward to a rousing game I like to play called "Give People A Lot of Rope and Watch Them Hang Themselves". The best part, at least for me, is they do all of the work.

But I know what ruined our relationship, we didn't communicate and my feelings were not validated.

See ya later.
