SilencerCo is excited to release episode five of the American Gun series, “American Gun: The Immigrant.” This video features Dahl, an American immigrant who was born and raised in Dominica, a small island in the Caribbean. Dahl’s story illustrates why the American Dream is not dead, and why the second amendment offers a freedom unlike anything else.
Dahl came to America when he was 25 years old on a path to citizenship through the U.S. Navy. Previously, he lived in other countries all around the world. The one thing that kept him from staying in any of these countries was his inability to participate in his favorite hobby: shooting guns.
“One thing I like about the US is you can be armed. The second amendment guarantees that you have that ability which is incomparable with any [other] country you go to,” said Dahl.
Now, as an American citizen, Dahl enjoys all of these freedoms and shares them with the people he loves. Although he and his brother are separated by a large age-gap, recreational shooting bridges that gap and creates a unique bond. Dahl also frequently invites other immigrant friends to join him in his hobby and teach them safety and tactical techniques.
This love of shooting is just one reason why the second amendment is so important. Previous “American Gun” episodes point out other reasons such as personal protection, craftsmanship and mental health.
Episode five marks the end of the first half of the “American Gun” project and videos can be found on the SilencerCo YouTube channel. The second half of the project will commence in early 2022.
