A black Republican pastor running for Congress in Arizona dropped an ad on Wednesday using his AR-15 to counter members of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK).
Jeron Davison is running for Arizona’s 4th congressional district. In the ad dropped on Twitter with the caption “Make Rifles Great Again,” Davison says that an AR-15 is sometimes needed.
Democrats like to say that no one needs an AR-15 for self-defense. No one can need all thirty rounds. But when that rifle is the only thing standing between your family and dozens of angry Democrats in the Klan covers, you might just need that semi-auto. And all thirty rounds.”
Make guns great again

The video shows Davison sitting at his kitchen table drinking from an American flag mug as KKK members armed with forks and other weapons surround his home. Davison then showed up at the door with an AR-15 in hand as members of the KKK Approach. (Related: Ted Cruz says critical race theory is “every bit of racism as the Clansman in the white papers”)
Davison exits the house, stops the Alansman in their tracks as they raise their hands in surrender and flee. At the end of the video, a white cap is shown floating in a puddle of water.
Davison grew up in Mississippi and dropped out of high school, according to him campaign website.
