Republicans gained Senate seats on Wednesday in Indiana, Missouri, and North Dakota as American rejected gun control again.
Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-IN) campaigned for new regulations on gun shows and expanding background checks to prohibit gun purchasers by those accused of terrorist ties, rather than those convicted. ABC News reports that Donnelly’s pro-gun challenger, NRA endorsed Mike Braun (R), won the race 53 percent to 43 percent.
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) also ran on a gun control platform, openly voicing support for more regulations on gun shows. Behind the scenes she supported even more gun control, like a “semiautomatic rifle ban,” but hid that support from voters. Missouri residents learned of her support for the many additional gun controls via a Project Veritas video in which he staff laughed at how easy she was able to hide her anti-gun intentions from voters.
