Let me say something to every political hack pretending you know an AR-15 from a

double-barreled shotgun in the wake of the Orlando terror attack:

Stop talking. 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.

Hillary Clinton says “weapons of war have no place on our streets” and that we need to

ban AR-15s immediately.

Unlike Hillary, I’ve actually used an AR-15 … but fully automatic. I was a SEAL for 12

years. Now I train average, everyday Americans to protect themselves and their

families. And for the vast majority of people I work with, there is no better firearm to

defend their homes against realistic threats than an AR-15, semi-automatic.

It’s easy to learn and easy to use. It’s accurate. It’s reliable.

And I guarantee if the Founding Fathers had known this gun would’ve been invented,

they wouldn’t have rewritten the Second Amendment—they would have fortified it in

stone.

Because they knew the only way for us to stay free was by having whatever guns the

bad guys have.

This firearm gives average people the advantage they so desperately need—and

deserve—to protect their life, liberty and happiness.

But it isn’t just the anti-gun politicians attacking our rights. With every broadcast, the

media proves how ignorant and desperate for ratings they truly are.

(Gretchen Carlson: Do we need AR-ˇ15s to hunt and kill deer? Do we need them to

protect our families?)

Look. Gretchen is a great broadcaster. And I’m glad she’s on the side of freedom on

most Second Amendment issues.

But the fact of the matter is, she simply does not understand what she’s talking about.

The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting. 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 is more prepared for and capable in a firefight than

almost every American alive … turns to the AR-15 to defend my family?

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.

Let’s run through some of the latest attacks and see how banning so-called “assault

weapons” would’ve turned out.

California already bans assault weapons. That didn’t stop San Bernardino.

No ban on ARs, or any guns, would have stopped the Boston marathon bombing.

ISIS’ well-coordinated attack in France wasn’t deterred by the country’s strict gun

control laws.

Brussels’ gun ban did nothing to stop terrorists from killing.

But every single one of those tragedies ended with police officers carrying AR-15s

rushing to the scene as fast as possible.

Hillary’s solution to stopping terror attacks … is to ban the very gun that stops terror

attacks. And she calls that common sense!

Why would you want to ban the gun that you pray for police to show up with?

Here’s a common-sense solution to stopping Islamic terror: law-abiding citizens

prepared to deal with the imminent threats we face.

Hillary Clinton is prepared.

She knows ARs are a powerful defense against radical Islamic terrorists. That’s why

she’s been surrounded by guards armed with them for the past three decades. AR-15s

are fine for Hillary and her family. But average Americans who watch the news and feel

genuine fear for their safety, and their families’ safety—she wants to deny them the

level of protection she insists upon herself.

I fought this enemy face-to-face for 12 years. I know how they think, and I know the

hatred that burns inside them.

I urge every law-abiding American to take measures to defend yourself. Arm yourself.

Get the proper training. Be aware of your surroundings at all times.

Call upon your politicians to get rid of the dangerous lie of gun-free zones.

Demand your national right to carry—and use it.

This threat is real. Our leaders are either incapable of or unwilling to protect you.

And the AR-15 is one of the most effective tools available to protect yourself and your

family.

Embrace your freedom. Buy one if you want to. Get trained and learn how to use it.

Your safety is in your hands. And thank God we have the Second Amendment.

Love shooting shotguns, but hate the noise? SilencerCo has you covered. They announced today that they will be producing the first commercially produced shotgun sound suppressor. Here is the full press release.

WEST VALLEY CITY, UTAH – July 21, 2014 | Confirming its place as a trailblazer in the firearms industry, suppressor manufacturer SilencerCo has unveiled the first commercially-viable shotgun silencer ever produced. The company made the announcement today at an exclusive event near its Utah headquarters.

Every year, millions of sportsmen and women venture into the field to hunt. While advances in technology have spurred a record-breaking proliferation of rifle and handgun suppressors, shotgun owners have been without a real solution for sound protection. Some choose hearing protection in the form of earmuffs or plugs for relief in controlled environments, but most spurn their use in the field or in a home protection scenario, where the ability to detect other sounds is critical.

The new product, named the Salvo 12, provides a much needed option for shooting enthusiasts.

“The Salvo 12 represents a revolution in silencers, not just an evolution,” asserts Joshua Waldron, Chief Executive Officer for SilencerCo. “There is a huge installed base of shotgun hunters and shooters that has been waiting for a product like this for a long time, and we are proud to deliver it.”

In addition to its inherent novelty, the Salvo 12 is a modular design that allows the shooter to add or remove sections to balance length, weight and sound suppression needs. It arrives as a 12 inch suppressor, but can be reduced to 10, 8 and 6 inch configurations as needed.

For SilencerCo, answering the call for new products is nothing new. Since its origins in a Utah garage in 2008, the company has earned a fiercely loyal customer base by pioneering much-needed advances such as this. Among many others, its first and best-selling product, the Sparrow 22, is the quietest and easiest-to-clean rimfire suppressor on the market. The Osprey pistol suppressor still holds the only eccentric design in existence, allowing the host gun to maintain a flat sight plane.

Adding value to the sale, the Salvo 12 will carry with it the same celebrated lifetime warranty as all other SilencerCo products. To learn more or to find out how to purchase a SilencerCo Salvo 12, visit www.silencerco.com/salvo.
