We invite you to join us this
Thursday -- June 19 -- 6:45 p.m.
to hear an expert on our disappearing gun freedoms.
He is a film producer, investigative reporter, writer and actor.
Some of you will remember him.
Remember the History Channel's Roger McGrath who spoke to us
last year about America's "Tradition of Arms"?
The room was packed!!!
And remember his friend, Dan Gifford, who showed us his very
own "Kentucky" rifle from the Revolutionary war period, and
helped Roger answer our questions?
Well, Dan is returning to tell us the latest developments in our disappearing
Second Amendment rights, and then will give us some practical advice.
Dan will speak to us about:
It's tough to own a firearm in California and also stay out of jail. If anti-gun activists have their way, that will also be the case nationally. What is the "reasonable" or "common sense" gun control activists are demanding? What do gun controllers really want? How did the gun control movement start? What are the lies being told by gun controllers to achieve their goals? History, perspective and some practical advice on it all.
Q & A to follow his presentation.
Dan Gifford is a film producer, investigative reporter, writer and actor. He has won the prestigious top news Emmy for Outstanding Investigative Reporting, the International Documentary Association’'s top award, and has been nominated for an Oscar, among other honors.
In a prior career, he was an investigative reporter who exposed organized crime, official corruption, financial fraud and journalistic duplicity for such news organizations as The MacNeil/Lehrer News Hour, ABC News, and CNN.
MacNeil/Lehrer credited him with being the first to reveal the looting and lying by criminals and government officials that destroyed so many banks and savings and loans during the 1980s.
During his hour long Financial Fraud special report on Houston's KUHT-TV, Dan was first to expose Houston wheeler dealer George Aubin as the mastermind of the massive scam that caused the demise of brokerage firm E.F. Hutton.
The Houston Post had this to say: "Gifford is one of the few reporters who understands how banks get plundered, how takeover predators destroy companies and how Wall Street crooks manipulate the markets. He can draw blood with a financial statement and the powers that be don'’t like it."
In New York, Dan was instrumental in exposing the cheating of customers at Saloman Brothers which caused its chairman, John Gutfreund, to be banned for life from running a brokerage firm. Gutfreund was known as The King of Wall Street at the time. His antics were recounted in the best selling book Liar's Poker. Dan's recent complaints to CNBC about its chummy showcasing of Gutfreund as a trustworthy market pundit led to his being dropped by the network.
Dan began his broadcast career while a high school student in 1965 Baltimore as a radio reporter and disc jockey.
As an actor, Dan has appeared in well-known feature films like Contact, Mad City, and Malcolm X. His TV credits include Tom Clancey’s Net Force, The X Files, The Practice, and Mr. Show. He was the voice of Fear on that top rated MTV series . Entertainment Weekly named Fear among the top Taboo-Breaking TV Moments.
In his producer capacity, Gifford helmed Waco: The Rules of Engagement (government mass murder and cover-up), and several other films.New York Press on Waco: The Rules of Engagement: “It is easily the most important American documentary of the past decade.”
A native of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Dan attended Lynchburg’s Virginia Episcopal School, Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, The Peabody Conservatory of Music and The Johns Hopkins University.
