The new NRA News has been live for a few months, quickly becoming our go-to online resource for our favorite NRA programming. As the most comprehensive video coverage of Second Amendment news and issues, it’s a network just for us—a place to see the kind of informative, entertaining and instructional videos and programming about the issues that matter most. 

With a full library of episodes from current and past seasons, we love that you can watch how and when you want. Catch an episode or two in your free time, or binge away to your heart’s desire. 

As the latest seasons of NRA programming come to a close, we’ve picked our favorite episodes to share with A1F Daily readers for this second edition of NRA News: A1F Staff Picks. 

“I Am Forever,” Sponsored by FNH USA
Season 2, Episode 1: “If You Can Keep It”

The newest season of “I Am Forever” is a new direction for NRA News programming like nothing you’ve ever seen before. At its heart, it’s a warning that American culture is at a crisis point, illustrated with bold storytelling and juxtaposed against America’s scenic beauty. It’s also the story of the American dream, told from three perspectives—the past, the present and the future. The past is represented by Nick, a Greek immigrant who escaped Nazi-ravaged Europe and seized every opportunity America had to offer. Our present is chronicled by a group of commentators who explain how so many of the decisions we are making are contrary to freedom’s survival. NRA-certified instructor and Cabela’s Pro Staff Ambassador Kristy Titus shows us our future, inviting two women on a 25-mile trek through the Cascade Mountains to rediscover the American values critical to sustaining freedom for generations to come. In the season premiere, “If You Can Keep It,” their backcountry adventure begins, and we are introduced to the interwoven stories of the past and commentary on our present.

Season 4, Episode 8: “America’s Forgotten Ally Against ISIS”

In this special edition of “Frontlines,” LtCol Oliver North travels to America’s forgotten ally, Kurdistan, for a firsthand status report on the ground war against ISIS. The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria continues to expand its sphere of control across the Middle East at an alarming rate. Crippled by sectarian tensions, Sunni and Shia-led governmental powers have failed to contain the spread of the radical Islamic terror group—forcing the legendary Kurdish Peshmerga fighting forces in Iraq and Syria to stand alone in the fight. Join the “Frontlines” team as they find out how America can support the only military force to consistently defeat ISIS and aid the millions of refugees who now call Kurdistan home.

“NOIR,” Sponsored by Mossberg
Season 4, Episode 7: “Gun Owners, Unite!”

As longtime fans, we knew we’d like the satirical commentary and authentic approach Colion takes in Season 4 of “NOIR.” What we didn’t know is that Colion would truly outdo himself this season and that we would love each new episode even more than the last. The Season 4 finale of “NOIR” tackles the fractured gun community and the need for a unified front against the anti-gun agenda. Colion reflects on the conversations he had and the minds he changed, and discusses what it means to identify as a gun owner with the Season 4 guests. Then, to our delight, Colion does what he does best—runs and guns out on the range simply for the sake of shooting. If you haven’t seen the Season 4 finale, “Gun Owners, Unite!” you can check it out here, or watch all episodes from Season 4 at

“Defending Our America,” Sponsored by SIG Sauer
Season 2, Episode 10: “There is No First Amendment Without the Second Amendment”

The series finale of “Defending Our America” brought this season’s roundtable discussion to a poignant end. In “There is No First Amendment Without the Second Amendment,” the Season 2 cast discusses how the Second Amendment is vital to our freedom as the right that protects all other rights. The episode centers around a true story about how the rights of a wounded war veteran and his special needs child have been illegally infringed—rights that are guaranteed and safeguarded by the Constitution. To stress the story’s significance, past A1F Daily WarriorWire contributors Tim Clemente and Del Wilber thoughtfully warn that our way of life will end if we passively stand by and allow our freedoms to be taken away.

“Ginny Simone Reporting”
Season 6, Episode 13: “Australia: A Nation of Defenseless Victims”

When Ginny Simone first reported on Australia's gun confiscation in 1998, gun owners there called it a wakeup call to all of us to never surrender our rights—because once they’re gone, you’ll never get them back. In her newest special report, “Australia: A Nation of Defenseless Victims,” Ginny investigates how Australia’s stringent gun laws have impacted the safety and security of its citizens—laws that presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton would gladly enact here if elected. Sen. David Leyonhjelm, the strongest voice for gun owners in Australia’s parliament, says, “We are a nation of victims.” Australia’s mandatory confiscation has not kept guns out of the hands of criminals, he tells Ginny, and it won’t work in America either.

“Love at First Shot,” Sponsored by Smith & Wesson
Season 2, Episode 9: “Full Circle”

In Season 2 of “Love at First Shot,” we were introduced to seven first-time shooters who all had a unique introduction to firearms. In the season finale, “Love at First Shot” lead instructor and Team Smith & Wesson captain Julie Golob reunites with three of the new shooters: Jen, Roger and Mickey. No longer first-timers, these “Love at First Shot” alums share their experiences and plans for the future as members of the shooting sports community. Later, Julie takes the reunion back to the range with a Smith & Wesson M&P 22 Compact where they discover what we already know—that it’s not just love at first shot, but love at each and every shot thereafter.
