Amateur vloggers on YouTube do it all the time. What are they doing with the rest of the $400 million or so they spend every year? Whatever it is, it does not seem to be having much of an effect.
    My thoughts exactly. They should be doing this all the time. Plenty of people with far less resources make similar videos. It’s easy to do. They are paid so much to do the difficult things.

    I would be interested in seeing factual information of his so-called "SEAL" career.

    I like the video, it was a great idea (if a bit of a no-brainer). I just wish they would have made it a bit more professional e.g., shorter, with only a couple of redundancies to make it only appear amateurish, and to make the background music actually background.

    Biden fits all of these factors and more.
    Not to mention he has a history of lies, plagiarism, and huge distortions about his education and IQ. Amazing how the mudslingers could find obscure clips from the last winning candidate's past, but are silent about Biden's record dating back to his embarrassing candidacy in the late 80s.

    I hate to say it, but this video looks like it was produced to throw a bunch of red meat to gun owners like us so that we will feel inclined to send the NRA more money. The NRA should be producing ads that target those people who may not like so called assault weapons or who may be on the fence. Anybody who owns an AR15 these days who still hasn’t figured out the Communists/Democrats want to ban them is probably too stupid to ever be convinced. The NRA and other gun groups should be taking the list of bills the Democrats proposed in Virginia this session and say how they will nationalize those type bills under a Biden presidency. Those bills included redefining broad categories of firearms (including most double stack pistols) as assault weapons and banning them, confiscation without compensation, red flag laws that deprive gun owners of the fundamental right of due process, and many more. The Democrats in Virginia exposed their real strategy. I think there are a lot of people, including casual gun owners who tune out when the NRA or any other group talks “assault weapons” but I think most would pay attention if they were educated to understand that the Democrats now are re-defining their bedside handgun or 12 gauge shotgun as an assault weapon and plan to ban and confiscate them without even compensating the owner.

    He "served" on a River Boat, that doesn't make him a SEAL.

    And yes the M-16 was in production in 1965 and on. We had M-16's and M-14's on our boat. Every one had hands on training with them.

    He said AR-16, not M-16. Completely different gun. The AR-16 was a 7.62x51. It was never intended for military use, but applications like third world security use. It only saw limited production. It was later redesigned for 5.56 and re-marketed as the AR-18, which had some success.

    Trouble is, in training and in Nam they called both M-16 or AR. It was a M 16 E1 and I hated it. But most of the time it was AR, and that was with a .223.

    This is a good NRA membership drive. It is not a good campaign add. It doesn't change minds. If anything, it helps the anti-gun group reinforces their stereotypes about guns.

    The end message is spot on though. Educating the misinformed is the way to approach the cultural rift.
