Brooks' support of the Second Amendment was not swayed by a June 14 shooting at a congressional baseball game practice in Alexandria, Virginia. Elect Mo Brooks, who was almost killed by a insane Bernie Sanders supporter, so he can protect the rights of insane Bernie Sanders supporters to almost kill more people?

Internal polling reported by AL.com shows that though Brooks has gotten a boost from his presence at the failed assassination, he still is polling third among Republicans in the race for the Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Clark said: "Our strategy will create the conditions that boost earning power throughout the country - its people, places and companies".

"The second amendment right to bear arms is to help ensure that we always have a republic", Brooks says.

In the immediate aftermath of the shooting, Alabama representative Mo Brooks described crouching on the ground with other politicians and using his belt as a tourniquet to help the congressional staffer. After a series of captions about how Brooks aided those wounded by the attack against Republicans, the ad focused on a question Brooks got from the "liberal media" about whether the shooting would change his position on guns. Scalise, who was shot in the hip, is still in the hospital and has been fluctuating between "serious" and "fair" condition for more than a month. That controversial move was panned by Brooks and other odd critics.

As inspirational music plays, the ad cuts to video of Brooks talking with journalists sometime after the shooting. Both Speaker Paul Ryan and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi delivered statements on the shooting and avoided weighing in on the politics of it, which was striking given the extreme political views of the shooter. He's running against Republicans Roy Moore and Luther Strange in the primary along with six others. A primary runoff, if necessary, will be September 26 and the general election is scheduled for December 12. The special election primary will be held on 15 August.
