Former U.S. Navy SEAL Dom Raso recently appeared in an NRA News segment, slamming gun control advocates like Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his “crew of puppets” for their actions.
“I am getting more and more tired of celebrities, politicians, and high-ranking officials who don’t know what they’re talking about lecturing us on gun control,” Raso began. “…A few months ago they were proudly talking about gun control. Now they’ve changed their language to ‘gun safety,’ as if that’s fooling anyone. What the hell is gun safety legislation anyway?”
Raso said if Bloomberg really cared about gun safety, “he’d put his billions of dollars towards educating Americans on the reality of firearms: how they work, the consequences of using them the wrong way, and the job they do.”
The former Navy SEAL said the time for “guys like [him]” to remain quiet on the issue, while self-styled experts like Michael Moore dominate the airwaves, has passed.
After playing a clip of Moore saying the Founders were referring to “muskets” when writing the Second Amendment, Raso commented with disgust: “Oh, and by the way, that weapon gave you your freedom. You’re welcome, you thankless excuse for an American.”
If that’s the case, he added dryly, the First Amendment must only protect speech written with quills on parchment.
“There is no logic in following the Constitution when you feel like it, and mocking it when you don’t,” Raso concluded.
