Former Navy SEAL Dom Raso has a special message for NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg and others like him who are pushing for more gun control: "If you really cared about the American people, you'd stand up for more freedom for them, and not more power and status for yourself."
The 12-year veteran is one of the newest NRA News contributors and has just released a diatribe against politicians who say they stand up for American safety but are quick to sacrifice essential freedom.
"It is unbelievable that politicians like Mayor Bloomberg think that they are experts on personal protection," Raso says in the video. "Me and the guys I fought with, we didn't go to war so that some politician could dictate whatever he thinks is best for the American people."
"What have those guys ever accomplished that gives them any credibility on the subject of personal protection?" he adds later:
Raso's salvo is the fourth installment in a series featuring fresh voices in the gun debate. The other episodes have featured viral gun star Colion Noir. You can watch his first episode here and his others here.
The other newest contributor to the NRA family is Natalie Foster, editor of "A Girl's Guide to Guns." Her episode is forthcoming. In the meantime, you can acquaint yourself with all three by reading our past write-up on the group and the NRA's push to reach a wider audience with its message.
