Here's an ad from Eric Greitens, who won the Republican primaries in my state. I didn't vote for him because I didn't feel he was conservative enough. Cool ad, though...
Guns are a really big deal here. Yep.
Recently, the Democratic candidate for Senate brought out his weapon and assembled it blindfolded in a campaign ad. He challenged his Republican opponent, Senator Roy Blunt, to do the same.
First off, Blunt is 9,000 years old (almost exactly) so it's not a fair fight. Second? Who does the NRA endorse? Blunt. Just because some guy can put his gun together on a TV ad doesn't mean he thinks you should be able to have one.
I hope people don't confuse "I have a gun" for "I am a conservative." It's really cool to watch people assemble guns, shoot stuff and cause explosions but I have a few other issues I'd like my political leaders to address, how about you?
