Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety has released a new ad targeting three Republican senators to pressure them into supporting legislation that would prohibit anyone convicted of domestic violence from buying or owning a gun.
According to the Washington Post, different versions of the ad specifically call on Republican Sens. Kelly Ayotte (N.H.), Jeff Flake (Ariz.) and Dean Heller (Nev.) to back the bill authored by Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.)
The Post writes, “The spot comes ahead of a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Wednesday that will examine the “next steps” of the Violence Against Women Act and how to improve the law to further protect women from abusive partners. ”
