Fairfax, VA -( The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) today launched its first TV ad of the presidential election cycle.

The $2 million ad buy will run nationally on cable and local broadcast stations in key battleground states including Colorado, Ohio, Nevada, Florida, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Maine.

“We cannot trust Hillary Clinton with our gun rights or our national security. The stakes in this election for law-abiding gun owners have never been higher, and the NRA will use all available resources to ensure that voters understand the consequences of a Hillary Clinton presidency on their fundamental right of self-defense,” said Chris W. Cox, chairperson of the NRA-PVF. “By saying that the Supreme Court got it wrong in the historic Heller decision, Hillary made it clear that she does not believe Americans have the right to keep a gun in their home to protect themselves.”

The ad, which features retired United States Marine Corps veteran and CIA contracted security contractor Mark “Oz” Geist, who led the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, in 2012 that saved the lives of 25 people. Geist, is the co-author of 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened In Benghazi.


MARK GEIST: A lot of people say they’re not gonna vote this November because their candidate didn’t win.

Well, I know some people who won’t be voting this year either.

Hillary as President? No thanks.

I served in Benghazi My friends didn’t make it.

They did their part. Do yours.

    1. I have no interest in Hillary Clinton being president and have no problem with people exercising their free speech to encourage people to vote for someone else. Not voting is just another way to give up a constitutional right. Not voting is plain stupid. So far so good.

      The use of a military cemetery as a backdrop for a political add is repugnant and morally wrong. Most of us lost good friends, family, and colleagues in Iraq, Afghanistan and a host of other places. You don’t have to be a pseudo celebrity or at Benghazi to feel the pain, see the faces of the lost, or watch families disintegrate over a hole that can never be filled by loved ones who will never return. Been there, done that. Keep your damn T-shirt.

      Making hay over the corpses of brothers in arms for political points pisses me off in ways that I can not begin to express. This add could have been done in a bunch of different places with equal impact.

      Shame on all concerned for this tone deaf lack of respect for the dead.

    2. I am not voting for comrade Clinton simply because I do not trust her and I have a nephew that is going to be joining the Naval medical Corp. She has a history of abandoning my countrymen, including my brothers in arms. Next time she may abandon your loved ones. I hope congress revokes her security clearance indefinitely and fire her. Choice is yours. I am voting trump.
