Can anyone find where to purchase this movie, 'An Unlikely Weapon', (2008)?

The photo below is the cover of February's edition of the Freedom's Phoenix e-Zine:
We have a large banner that we sent to Liberty Forum this past week, but are going to have another large banner done with the above cover to replace that one for use at the GOP Debate in Mesa, AZ on Feb 22nd, 2012. The graphics person who is making the banner (Art Jackson of Techniprint - Phoenix, AZ) noticed the pictures in the banner and suggested the movie, 'An Unlikely Weapon' as it had a lot of the same graphics in it and provided the same theme.
We want to purchase the move but cannot find where to do so, so if you know where we can get a copy, please send and email to:

Thank you...
