A group founded by former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords to push for new gun legislation is out with a new ad buy in Arizona and Iowa, focusing on two Republican senators.
In the ad from Americans for Responsible Solutions, Giffords appears with husband Mark Kelly and speaks directly to the camera. “We have a problem. Where we shop; where we pray; where our children go to school. But there are solutions we can agree on, even gun owners like us,” she says. “Take it from me: Congress must act. Let’s get this done.“
The ad, a six-figure buy which will run over the next two weeks, closely mirrors a spot released by the group last month. But in these ads, viewers are asked to call Sens. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa). Both are members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is currently working on gun legislation.
