A new NRA television ad is refuting and invalidating calls to tighten federal gun-control laws coming from the Democratic National Convention. The TV spot began running Thursday on national cable and features Kimberly Corban—a rape victim who embraced her right to bear arms after her brutal attack.
Corban has become an increasingly outspoken advocate of the Second Amendment since she bravely confronted President Barack Obama during a televised town hall meeting in January, accusing his administration of making it harder for her to own a gun to keep her family safe.
Corban presents an impactful counterpunch to the gun-control movement. “The thought of owning a handgun terrified me … until one night a man attacked me,” Corban says in the ad. “My fear of guns disappeared when I got my second chance at life.” She continues, “Self-defense is your right. Don’t let it be taken away.”
