A Westside Armory advertisement suggests customers buy an AR-15 now, as prices will skyrocket if “Crooked Hillary” wins the election.
Westside Armory is located in Las Vegas and ran the ad in the Las Vegas Review-Journal during the weekend.
The ad announced a “Pre-Hillary sale,” then urged customers not to wait until Clinton was elected before trying to make a purchase. KTNV political analyst Jon Ralston tweeted a photo of the ad:

The Washington Post reported on the ad, as well, saying, “The reference to ‘Crooked Hillary’ — Donald Trump’s nickname for Clinton — is a clear appeal to supporters of the Republican nominee, who has accused Clinton of wanting to ‘get rid of all the guns’ and ‘essentially abolish the Second Amendment.'” WaPo then quickly attempted to shield Clinton from Trump’s accusations, saying, “Clinton has advocated no such thing.”
Last week, WaPo was busy shielding Clinton from the fallout of the latest James O’Keefe video. The video, which was taken via hidden camera, showed Clinton’s friend Amy Rao saying, “Hillary wants to shut it down. She wants to shut it down,” referring to guns. Rao continued, “If we can get guns away from everyone in this country, she’ll close the loopholes, get rid of assault weapons. She’ll get rid of being able to buy, you know, unlimited bullets. She’s going to make all that stop.”
