Waco: The Rules of Engagement is a 1997 documentary directed by William Gazecki about the 1993 "Waco Siege", a 51-day standoff beginning with the 28 February Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms assault on the Branch Davidian church and home outside of Waco, Texas and ending with the 19 April Federal Bureau of Investigations assault on the building which killed most of the inhabitants. The film was spearheaded by Second Amendment activist turned filmmaker Michael McNulty who spent twenty-eight months and $400,000 developing the film. Later former CNN business news reporter Dan Gifford and his wife Amy Sommer Gifford came in as co-producers, supplying almost another one million dollars. Director William Gazecki joined McNulty in traveling the country to interview and film participants for the film. Gifford, Gazecki and McNulty wrote the script.
