• Girls Just Wanna Have Guns — The Movie

    If your front door is suddenly bashed down in the middle of the night and criminals rushed into your house, would you know exactly what to do?

    If some perverted freak tries to rape you, would you have a means to defend yourself?

    Regis Giles says, whip out a semi-automatic or get your shot gun and blast. That guy will most likely skedaddle and not stick around to get shot.

    More Americans want guns in their homes for protection, and perhaps a sign out front declaring the house a gun-filled rather than gun-free zone. Yet, Democrats pledge to bring gun control legislation back to the floor.

    Amid the controversial debate on gun control, Giles, a conservative activist and a leading voice for the second amendment right, is shattering the false liberal narrative that claims gun owners are just a bunch of old fat white guys clinging to their guns.

    “I want to see women taking the fortitude to turn from prey to formidable defender,” Giles told Daily Surge. “There have been countless times in the news cycle where I have seen women abducted in broad day light and found dead days later. I want to see this stop.”

    A lifetime member of the NRA and a black belt in Jiu-Jitsu, Giles is fully equipped in the art of self-defense. She was trained from a young age to kick some serious backside. Her father, ClashDaily.com founder Doug Giles, took her to the shooting range when she was nine years old and she shot a firearm for the first time.

    “It was a .22 Remington rifle—he showed me how the gun operated and what to expect. I remember thinking ‘oh my gosh this is going to kick back, this is going to be scary and I am not going to enjoy this at all,’” she said. “It was intimidating to begin with, but when I squeezed the trigger and that first round fired off I was like, ‘ this is so cool.’ The moment the gunpowder exploded I was hooked, I understood the importance and from then on I continued shooting.”

    She started shooting a higher caliber rifle for her first hunt when she was twelve.

    “It was adrenaline pumping that’s for sure. The wild boar I was supposed to go after actually charged us. It’s funny my older sister and I both went hunting on the same day and she didn’t enjoy it all.”

    Hannah Giles, Regis’ sister, claims a share of the conservative spotlight as well. She posed as the prostitute in the infamous “sting” operation in which activists at ACORN were videotaped appearing to advise a pimp and a hooker on how to launder money.

    Fed up with seeing news reports of girls being abducted, Regis founded GirlsJustWannaHaveGuns.com in 2009 as a way to share her knowledge of self-defense.

    “It’s a campaign that has gained a lot of national and international attention,” she said. “It’s a beautiful thing to see because the idea is working and now you see women across the nation getting more guns and learning how to defend their lives.”

    “The only thing that is really upsetting is seeing how liberals and the mainstream media are trying to pass gun control and take away our second amendment rights—your God-given right to protect life,” she said.

    Regis is taking her passion and making a film to combat the twisted lies that gun-control zealots propagandize. She has partnered with a team of acclaimed filmmakers to produce a 90-minute documentary motion picture that will carry the same title as her website, Girls Just Wanna Have Guns intended to serve as a wake-up call to all Americans.

    “This is a great opportunity to go out there nationwide, get stories of women who have used firearms in self-defense and present it to the nation,” Giles said. “I started this documentary to take on the mainstream media’s narrative on gun control and how guns aren’t for women and how if anything they harm women—it’s just blatant lies.”

    The film has a projected budget of $500,000 and is expected to take about a year to produce from start to completion. Giles launched an online fundraising campaign through Indiegogo.com whereby grassroots activists around the country can donate to the cause.

    The fundraising campaign offers rewards to donors, including copies of the book, free tickets, DVDs, and movie credits. Regis’ dad has offered a few rewards to those who participate in the campaign, including Safari Cigar subscriptions, private martial arts and shooting lessons, deep sea fishing and even an African safari.

    Women who have never thought about carrying a fire arm or wanting to shoot a gun are Giles’ target audience.

    “I live in Miami, Florida and it’s not a place necessarily that is hospitable for women to focus on their gun rights, they are a little bit more focused on their tanning lines,” she said. “I constantly talk to women who are not ever in the state of mind of wanting to own a firearm, but I let them know what the facts are as far as violence committed against us and our freedom and right to carry that firearm and they start changing their minds because with the realization they understand their life is on the line.”

    Regis hopes after watching the documentary people are going to start packing heat and understand the firearms are a necessary tool for a women’s survival.

    “No matter your political alignment a gun in the hand of a good girl is far better than a gun in the hands of bad man,” she said. “Once this documentary is made more women across the nation will realize our second amendment rights are very important and the real war on women is from those that are trying to take away their right defend their life. “

    As many as 200,000 women use a gun every year to defend themselves against sexual attacks.

    “You don’t see stories like these in the news because it promotes second amendment values,” Giles said. “Freedom, life and liberty is protected because you have a firearm to defend them.”
