In Missouri Senate Race, Challenger Makes His Point With a Blindfold and Rifle

Stashed in: Weapons!

Jason Kander likes guns AND he's pro-background checks. 


Politicians have long fired guns and rifles in ads to prove their Second Amendment bona fides, but rarely has one shown such comfort with an assault rifle as Mr. Kander in this ad. The commercial also lets Mr. Kander remind the viewer, as he often reminds voters on the campaign trail, that he has a military background, while Mr. Blunt does not. Mr. Kander is still trailing Mr. Blunt in the polls but only by a few percentage points, so despite Missouri’s reliably Republican voting record in the presidential election, the state is far from an assured victory for Mr. Blunt.
