The National Rifle Association (NRA) recently released a video (below) warning the "ayatollahs of Iran and every terrorist you enable" about Americans who work manual labor jobs in rural parts of the U.S.
The video features a bearded man in a cowboy hat mocking the President Barack Obama as "our fresh-faced flower child president and his weak-kneed, Ivy League friends," notes Raw Story.
After attacking the U.S. president, the NRA spokesman turns this aim on U.S. cities, which he refers to as "urban war zones" where police are fighting "the good fight" (presumably against Americans):
But you haven’t met America. You haven’t met the heartland, or the people who will defend this nation with their bloody, calloused, bare hands, if that’s what it takes.

You haven’t met the steelworkers and the hard-rock miners, or the swamp folks in Cajun country who can wrestle a full-grown gator out of the water.
You haven’t met the farmers, the cowboys, the loggers and the truck drivers. You don’t know the mountain men who live off the land, or the brave cops who fight the good fight in the urban war zones.
No, you’ve never met America. And you oughta pray you never do. I'm the National Rifle Association of America and I'm free to save this place.
The gun industry lobbying organization states it on its website: "The absence of firm leadership in our executive branch shouldn't fool the enemies of America into thinking that our nation is weak. Our true strength lies in the firm hands and ready steel of millions of proud, hard-working men and women. We are the NRA, and we are Freedom's Safest Place."

It's not clear how the NRA actually plans to fight Iran, but the Obama administration has been waging numerous armed conflicts not mentioned by the NRA video.
The Intercept noted in 2015 that President Obama has bombed seven countries, all Muslim.
Opposing Views noted earlier this month that the U.S. military, under the Obama administration, is involved in numerous simultaneous secret wars around the globe.
