On September 17, Americans for Responsible Solutions–the gun control group founded by Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly–launched two ads targeting pro-gun GOP candidates in New Hampshire.
One of the ads accuses Representative Frank Guinta (R-NH-1st Dist.) of “following the gun lobby’s agenda” and equates his opposition to more gun control with support for a “loophole” that “lets stalkers buy guns.” The other ad targets state representative Marilinda Garcia (R), describing her opposition to more gun control as “contrary to… [the] beliefs… of most New Hampshire residents.”
Garcia is running for the Congressional seat in New Hampshire’s Second District.
According to MSNBC, the ad against Garcia also hits on her opposition to raising the minimum wage.
Earlier on September 17, Breitbart News reported that Giffords was also running ads against GOP candidate Martha McSally, who is seeking to win Giffords’ former seat in Arizona. McSally believes we have all the gun control we need and the problem is a lack of enforcement, not a lack of laws.
