The enigmatic Internet sensation never holds back or stays between the narrow lines of political correctness. As a NRA News Commentator and the host of NOIR, his mission is to spread the facts about guns and hopefully change some minds. The practicing attorney, urban enthusiast and new face of gun culture didn't pick up a firearm until later in life, and wasn't pro-gun until the day he went to a range. "It was an eye-opener," he said. The reality behind a firearm is, "It doesn't have a soul, it isn't evil, it's just an inanimate object."

Meet NRA News Commentator Dom Raso. A U.S. Navy SEAL veteran, Raso says there are not many things that can compare to serving your country and defending your freedom. That freedom applies to firearms, too. "As long as humans exist, there will be weapons in this world. We're better off knowing how to use them and apply them for the right reasons—than not knowing how to use them." Raso is also the founder of Dynamis Alliance, an organization that offers specially designed gear and customized training programs for all levels of experience.
