Good Guys With Guns

This is a crowd-funded movie exposing the ridiculousness of the elite-funded anti-gun message that has a near-monopoly on the airwaves. This movie will be an antidote to the ubiquitous “good guys are defenseless” sermons.

MATRIX Entertainment has produced several excellent movies. I bought and watched several. That is entry-level support for a valuable production organization. Shop for and buy one or more yourself.

Their current project is a very important answer to the assault on our access to self-defense tools. The false flags, hoaxes, real events and the political press to disarm us is relentless. A tool such as this movie promises to be will be perhaps CRUCIAL.

Watch the trailer for the upcoming video. Then consider the appeal for your assistance in funding production below.

Progress Report
18 May 2018
Dear GOOD GUY Associate,
A lot of people have watched the new trailer and it seems like everyone likes it because it comes down to this: what causes mass shootings, things like SSRI drugs or weapons of war?  This is what GOOD GUYS WITH GUNS – How an Armed Citizenry Deters Tyranny and Atrocities deals with.  But first, here are some facts and figures to fill you in on the production to date.
We announced commencement of GOOD GUYS WITH GUNS on 22 November 2017. That means we have been in script development and production for about 6.5 months (Nov 2017 to May 2018).  These projects usually take about 18 months to complete. 
In the past 6.5 months about 167 people (MEC Donors + Oath Keeper Members) have donated the sum of $14,188, the average donation being about $85. 
The production Budget for GOOD GUYS WITH GUNS — which was announced at the start — is $77,467.  Simple math tells us that we still need $63,279 to complete this movie over the next 11.5 months. 
I am not permitted to disclose the size of the MEC mailing list the Progress Reports go out to, but suffice it to say it is more than 50,000.  This means that if 167 people out of 50,000 donated for the production of GOOD GUYS WITH GUNS, this is only .3% or less than 1% donated.
Please understand I am NOT complaining about the donations many of you generously made, I am complaining about the donations most of you have NOT made.
Have you ever heard the old saying that:
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
Well this applies here because serious evil is happening around this nation.  Children are regularly being shot in our schools, monsters on psych drugs are roaming the land and the Left is spending millions of dollars on movies that use these atrocities to further infringe your right to keep and bear arms.  Case in point:
GOOD GUYS WITH GUNS will cost $77,467 to produce
BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE cost $4,300,000 to produce
The Left can spend 56 times more money making their ANTI-gun movie than we are able to spend making our PRO-gun movie?!  What’s wrong with this picture?
Folks, I am now addressing the 49,833 of you who have so far NOT donated to this production and asking you to please re-consider your priorities.  If you do NOTHING — as the adage from Edmund Burke says – evil WILL triumph.  If you force 167 people to carry the load, that’s doing nothing.  How fair is it that 167 citizens have to finance the budget of a movie that safeguards YOUR rights?!  Why should you enjoy the right to keep and bear arms when you haven’t even allocated an amount equal to a meal-out-on-the-town?  Again, the Left spends $4,222,533 more on one of THEIR propaganda films to take away, not only YOUR guns, but the guns of the 167 people that cared enough to donate.
If some sizable percentage of the citizens in the three gun organizations – OK, GOA and NRA – were to get serious about laying out the real reasons we keep and bear – America would never go the way of Australia or Britain.  But if we’re not careful, we could.  If that happened, you and your kids would live in a “gun-free zone” that spanned the entire country.   
So suspending or terminating this movie project because of relatively small sums needed to finance the budget could be a serious liability.  Seeing the Left allocate whatever it takes to defeat the Second Amendment is disheartening, if not treacherous.  If we had the budget Michael Moore wasted on BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE alone, we could have made many pro-Second Amendment movies. 
Even still, the $14,188 allocated to GOOD GUYS WITH GUNS so far has enabled us to get a lot of work done.  This includes researching the subject, developing a salient, feature-length script, creating artwork, building the official website, auditioning and hiring voice-over talent, producing 3 trailers, and sending a camera crew to LA to interview G. Edward Griffin.  Do you think we could have gotten all this done in Hollywood for $14,188?  In Hollywood, the telescript alone for GOOD GUYS WITH GUNS would have cost $29,286 — even at Writer’s Guild minimum.  Don’t believe me, see page 23 of the WGA Basic Contract. And to write and produce three trailers it would have cost us $5,000 or $10,000 per trailer.  So considering the production values we are able to deliver for this project really makes it a labor of love.      
Those of you who have been donating are not expected to give any more “love.”  What I would hope and suggest, however, is that you give some tough-love to your fellow citizens — especially those of means who have never donated.  Hopefully they will donate so evil does not triumph. 
The unfortunate fact is this movie may not get done -– or could take forever — unless some donors of means come into the project.  It is taking us longer than need be to produce this film because so much of our time is going into writing these Progress Reports and other things to raise money from numerous smaller donors.  We appreciate the smaller donors, but we need some larger donors who will come into the project with $1,000,  $5,000, $10,000 or $20,000.  These donations will garner a prestigious Associate Producer, Executive Producer or Producer screencredits on the MAIN TITLES of the movie.  Plus donors of $5,000 or more will receive a deal whereby they can acquire — directly from the DVD manufacturer — the right to acquire DVDs for about $2 and sell them for whatever they want.  This easily gives major donors the ability to, not only recoup their donations, but get 2, 3 or 4 times their donation sum back.
The universe has blessed us all with different gifts, gifts that we are “supposed to use to serve one another as stewards of God’s varied grace.”  Therefore, I know, to some people, $50 is as difficult to come by as $5,000 to others and a donation of $50 can be as “kingly of a gift” from one as a donation of $5,000 can be from another.  Every one of our past 8 documentaries all on the Internet as free public services has been graced with 3 or 4 major donors, so I am grateful but I am also hoping this will happen for this important film as well.
Donor-funding of these movies makes it possible to put them on the Internet for free – otherwise we would have to charge.  Many don’t understand this.  If the movies were investor-funded, they couldn’t go on the Internet for free because the investors would want to recoup their investment and the only way this could happen is if we were to charge.  This would mean many, possibly millions of people, would be MUCH less likely to see the movies. Because our movies are posted for free, they are more easily screened by the millions of people that most need to see them.  Again, if the movies were only available on DVD or Pay-cable TV — because we had to pay back investors  — a much smaller audience would see them.  Word about the Second Amendment and Militia System would NOT get out. 
REMEMBER, the Mainstream Media will not lift a finger to promote any of these movies.  They are a part of the problem.  Case in point: almost the entire Trump platform is in one of our earlier movies, ORIGINAL INTENT, but this platform was NEVER promoted in the Mainstream Media.  This is why all the MSM pundits and swamp creatures were so “surprised” when he won.  Yet, YOU helped us produce ORIGINAL INTENT ten (10) years ago. 
Don’t believe me, watch the Trump platform in ORIGINAL INTENT now.  It’s been up for free at for decades.
The material in our movies is at least 3 – 5 years ahead of the public awareness curve.  Many times our movies are critical of the Establishment and THIS is why they can only be financed by visionary donors – people who donate for something higher than just money or profit, people who want to see change, improvement and who are willing to support labors of love that will effectuate these things.  Establishment investors just want to make money and many of them don’t give a rat’s ass about the county, its citizens or the Second Amendment.
So we are grateful for the $14,188 that has come in from 167 donors, but we really need some major donors to get this project done.  This film is so important and it’s cost of production so minuscule in the larger scheme of things.  I just don’t understand why LIBERALS easily finance movies like COLUMBINE for millions and GOOD GUYS is having difficulty raising even $77,467 from CONSERVATIVES.  Come on fellow conservatives — don’t be conservative — the liberals are eating us alive. Donate
Nudge your fellow conservatives to donate.  Pass this email around. God helps those who help themselves.  We can abandon this project and allocate the screen credits to another movie, but what movie is more important than a movie about tyranny and atrocities and safeguarding our kids from this two-headed monster?!  If you don’t know what I mean, watch the new trailer for GOOD GUYS WITH GUNS at or click on the viewer below.
