While his competitors are zeroing in on Senator Toomey and the general election, Braddock Mayor John Fetterman wants to talk about issues, specifically gun control.
Today, the Fetterman campaign debuted an ad entitled “Guns”.
“All of us should agree that we want to make sure that weapons like this stay out of the hands of people that could use them to hurt people,” the Mayor states while holding his Smith & Wesson Model 500, which he has owned for 10 years.
“Politicians in Washington are too afraid of the gun lobby to pass even the most sensible reforms, like universal background checks,” the candidate says in a statement accompanying the commercial. “I’m not going to promise you that I alone can change Congress, but if we want to reduce gun violence, first we have to stop electing cowards. And honestly, do I look like I’m scared of the NRA?”
Fetterman is running against former Chief of Staff to Gov. Wolf Katie McGinty and former Congressman Joe Sestak in the Senate Democratic primary.
