Republican Candidate Warns of 'Looting Hordes from Atlanta' While Wielding an AR-15 in Bonkers New Campaign Ad
It's a common Republican scare tactic to claim that Democrats seeking common sense gun safety reform are on a secret mission to take all of Americans' guns.
But former Congressman Paul Broun (R-GA) just took that conspiracy theory a step further in a new campaign ad for his election to the open House of Representatives seat for Georgia's ninth district.
Congressman Dan Buck (R-CO) is trending on Twitter after posting a sinister video with the red, white, and blue AR-15 mounted in his office.
The Congressman challenged Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden, along with former Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke to "come and take" the assault weapon from him.

Senator and 2020 Presidential candidate Kamala Harris (D-CA) appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to discuss the upcoming election and the most urgent issues facing the nation.
Considering the United States saw 53 people murdered in mass shootings last month alone, the issue of common sense gun reform soon arose. Harris asked the audience—comprised of college students—whether or not they've ever had to undergo an active shooter drill at any point during their education. Virtually every single hand went up.

It was only last month that 22 people were murdered by a racist gunman targeting Hispanics in El Paso, Texas, once again bringing gun violence to the forefront of American political issues.
El Paso is the hometown of former congressman and current Democratic Presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke, who suspended campaigning after the shooting to console his constituents and help the town recover before getting back on the campaign trail.
Nancy Pelosi Erupts at Reporter Who Asks Why She Didn't Bring the House Back in Session to Tackle Gun Control
The Speaker of the House, Democrat Nancy Pelosi of California, put credit where it was due when asked about the lack of gun control legislation passed through Congress.
When a reporter asked Pelosi if she had regrets about not calling the House back from recess early to tackle gun control in the wake of more mass shootings and acts of White nationalist domestic terrorism she put the reporter in her place reminding her that the House has in fact passed gun control legislation and that her question was better asked of Senate Majority Leader McConnell.
AOC Skewers GOP Congressman Who Says He Won't Be Able to Loan His Friends Guns with Universal Background Checks
As mass shootings continue to plague the United States, most recently in Odessa, Texas, Americans are calling for action to be taken to stem the epidemic. Among the calls to action are universal background checks, which would close federal loopholes and require background checks for private sales. While many states have laws requiring background checks for private transactions, they aren't required under federal law.
Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) wants to keep it that way. His state, which has had at least two mass shootings in 30 days, loosened gun laws the day after the Odessa shooting.
