In the wake of the Orlando terror attack at the Pulse nightclub, many politicians – including President Obama and Hillary Clinton – called for a ban on the AR-15 and other “assault weapons.”

 

The NRA responded to these calls with a powerful attack ad, featuring retired Navy SEAL Dom Raso.

 

“When you say ‘assault weapons,’ when you say ‘weapons of war,’ it immediately shows your level of ignorance [of] what we’re actually talking about,” Rasso said on “Fox and Friends” the morning of June 20, 2016.

 

Raso explained that for most Americans, an AR-15 is the best defense against terror or crime, because it’s easy to use, accurate and reliable.

 

He noted that Obama and Clinton may call for an AR-15 ban, but they are protected by armed guards who use them.

 

Similarly, he said, when Americans call the police in an emergency, they are hoping that they show up with AR-15s.

 

“When you have the proper mindset, it’s not about writing off your accountability for safety,” Raso said. “It’s about embracing that accountability.”
