Since the terror attack on a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, Democrats have begun calling for a full ban on assault weapons or, as many have come to call them, “weapons of war.”
“We have seen the devastation that these military style weapons cause,” said Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in a recent interview.
Not everyone is jumping on the bandwagon. Millions of law abiding gun owners are defiantly opposing the calls for a ban.
Dom Raso, a veteran Navy SEAL, is one of the voices rejecting left-wing calls for a ban on so-called assault weapons. In a recent video, Raso destroys arguments that claim such a ban would make Americans more safe.
“Every word not only exposes your ignorance, but your utter contempt for ordinary Americans trying to survive in an age of terror you still won’t fully recognize,” Raso says, addressing Democrats calling for a ban. Raso, who was a SEAL for 12 years and now trains civilians in the use of firearms, goes on to explain why an AR-15 is the perfect weapon for self-defense for the average citizen.
“It’s easy to learn and easy to use,” Raso explains. “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 have fortified it in stone.”
