DOM RASO (NRATV COMMENTATOR): I was a SEAL for 12 years. Now I train average, everyday Americans to protect themselves and their families. And for the vast majority of people I work with, there is no better firearm to defend their homes against realistic threats than an AR-15, semi-automatic. It's easy to learn and easy to use. It's accurate. It's reliable. And I guarantee if the Founding Fathers had known this gun would have been invented, they wouldn't have rewritten the Second Amendment -- they would've fortified it in stone. Because they knew the only way for us to stay free was by having whatever guns the bad guys have. This firearm gives average people the advantage they so desperately need -- and deserve -- to protect their life, liberty and happiness. And when it comes to defending your family -- what does it say to you when I, a veteran Navy SEAL, someone who trains on every conceivable firearm platform -- as well as trains in hand-to-hand combatives -- someone who is more prepared for and capable in a firefight than almost every American alive, turns to the AR-15 to defend my family? Choosing to defend your home with an AR-15 is a common-sense choice that tens of millions of Americans are making -- and our neighborhoods and communities are safer for it. I urge every law-abiding American to take measures to defend yourself. Arm yourself. Get the proper training. Be aware of your surroundings at all times. Call upon your politicians to get rid of the dangerous lie of gun-free zones. Demand your national right to carry -- and use it.
