New Mexico congressional candidate Pat Davis aired an expletive anti-NRA television advertisement on Friday that made news for all the wrong reasons.
In the 15-second spot, Davis opens the ad with the words “F*** the NRA.”
The searing statement was then followed up with ridiculous assertions that the National Rifle Association is responsible for dead mothers and children.
Davis, a Democrat who currently serves on the Albuquerque City Council, accused the NRA’s “pro-gun policies” for “dead children, dead mothers, and dead fathers” and admitted in a blog post that while his statement wasn’t polite, it was the only way to get the NRA’s attention.
“If Congress won’t change our gun laws, we’re changing Congress,” he continued. The ad made its debut on KRQE-TV where it wasn’t censored because of laws surrounding campaign commercials.
The law says the station is permitted to air the ad in order to provide equal access to all candidates. The only requirement is that the station includes a brief warning prior to the ad running.
The NRA’s Jennifer Baker responded to Davis’ ad saying it does nothing to address serious public safety issues.
Check out the ad below:
