If you’ve ever wondered about the cause of America’s vile gun control problems then arguably look no further than some of its gun-toting politicians.
Eric Greitens, a Republican Senate candidate and former Navy Seal, has just released a campaign ad where he carries a gun and insinuates that he wants people to shoot rival candidates he deems as soft.
Armed with a shotgun and pistol, the pro-Trump Greitens threatens to shoot “Rhinos” or left-leaning members of his own Republican party.
“Today we’re going Rino hunting,” Greitens said, adding that Rinos feed “on corruption and is marked by the stripes of cowardice”.
The former Missouri governor then takes the spot one step further, storming a home with a group of men in military uniforms.
Greitens added: “Join the MAGA crew, get a Rino hunting permit. There’s no bagging limit, no tagging limit, and it doesn’t expire until we save our country.”
Watch the ad below:

Naturally the campaign hasn’t gone down too well in a nation still reeling from the shooting deaths of 19 school children and teachers at Texas’ Robb Elementary School in late May.
“This is sociopathic. You’re going to get someone killed,” tweeted one of Greitens’ political rivals.
Fred Guttenberg who lost his daughter Jaime Guttenberg in the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, said the FBI should take action against the ad and the potential senator.
However, Greitens’ campaign manager Dylan Jones defended the spot. “If anyone doesn’t get the metaphor, they are either lying or dumb,” Jones told the New York Times.
