The National Rifle Association’s Political Victory Fund released a new ad against Hillary Clinton Tuesday aimed at energizing voters concerned about gun rights following the Democratic nominee’s bump in polls in recent days.
“If elected Hillary Clinton will appoint an-anti-gun Supreme Court Justice to overturn our fundamental right to self-protection,” Chris Cox, chairman of NRA’s Political Victory Fund, said in a statement to USA TODAY about the $3 million ad buy. “That is what this election is about: protecting our individual right to keep a firearm in our home for protection and making sure that there isn’t one set of rules for political elites like Hillary Clinton and a different set for the rest of us.”
The ad begins with footage of someone portraying Clinton heading toward a private jet.
“She’s one of the wealthiest women in politics. Combined income: 30 million dollars,” the narrator says. “Tours the world on private jets. Protected by armed guards for thirty years. But she doesn’t believe in your right to keep a gun at home for self-defense,” it continues.
