An NRA commentator and former Navy SEAL says 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.
Speaking in the short video from the National Rifle Association, former Naval special warfare operator Dom Rasso, who was a SEAL for 12 years, says if the Founding Fathers had known about the AR-15 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.”
Calling the AR platform accurate and reliable, Rasso goes on to say “This firearm gives average people the advantage they so desperately need and deserve to protect their life, liberty, and happiness.”
The video includes media footage of Sutherland Springs, Texas “good guy with a gun” Stephen Willeford, who used his personal AR-15 to engage the man who killed more than 20 at the First Baptist Church last week.
“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’s more prepared for and capable in a firefight than almost every American alive– turns to the AR-15 to defend my family?” Rasso says.
