Script of "Texas Law Enforcement Officer" (TV)

ANDY VAQUERA: As an American, I've never taken my freedoms for granted.

(Text on screen: Andy Vaquera; Ret. Police Officer; Texas)

As a retired law enforcement officer, I've seen firsthand the tragedy that happens when people are stripped of their gun rights.

Families should be able to defend themselves against rapists, drug dealers and other criminals illegally crossing our border.

But Barack Obama didn't think we should be allowed to use a firearm for self-defense.

(Text on screen: Source: Illinois Senate S.B. 2165 3/25/04)

He even voted to allow the prosecution of people who used firearms to defend their families in their own homes. That's just wrong.

On Election Day, join me in protecting our right of self-defense. Defend freedom. Defeat Obama.
