Democratic Nominee for US Senate Michael Franken Releases Video Challenging Senator Chuck Grassley to Join Him at a Gun Range 

DES MOINES, IA–Democratic nominee Mike Franken doubled down on his commitment to help end gun violence and released a video inviting Senator Grassley to join him at a gun range. Franken issued the following statement:

“My opponent Chuck Grassley says he doesn’t know much about guns. Hasn’t shot one in ‘40 – 50 years.’

Well, Senator, I spent nearly 40 years in the Military. So let me tell you… firearms like the AR-15 are weapons of war.

If you knew what an assault rifle is capable of, what it does to a body…  would you still have blocked a bill for universal background checks a mere two days after another mass shooting?

Would you still be telling donors that you quote ‘will not budge’ on gun legislation?

Come to a gun range with me.

Pull the trigger of an AR-15… Feel its power… See how accurately 30 rounds pass through a target. How fast you can reload another magazine with just a bit of practice.

Then tell me you still think anyone should be able to walk into a gun show and buy one from a private seller, no questions asked.

Just name the time and the place. I’ll be there.”
