David & Me: One Journalist, One Question and the NRA

At CPAC 2013, I tried to ask National Rifle Association President David Keene one question, but was thwarted by his Director of Public Affairs and security entourage. It quickly occurred to me that Mr. Keene would not answer any of my questions, and that it would be funny to film my interview attempts getting shot down... pun intended... for use in a mini-documentary stylistically akin to Michael Moore's seminal Roger & Me. I weave in this footage with commentary on Sandy Hook, the NRA's past stances on gun reform and Ronald Reagan's support of an assault weapons ban. To channel Wayne LaPierre from 1999, "Let's talk about what's reasonable, and what's not."
