On Tuesday, U.S. Rep. Xochitl Torres Small (NM-02) attempted to claim once again she’s pro-gun by redoing her 2018 campaign ad featuring her firing off a shotgun. This time, she fired an array of firearms, including a shotgun and a revolver.
Torres Small says, “This is how I unwind. I’m Xochitl Torres Small. I haven’t been in Congress that long, but if there’s one thing I’ve learned: Washington doesn’t get us. Out here, no one asks if you’re a Republican or a Democrat. We’re all just New Mexican. It’s why I don’t play their silly political games, and why I work with anyone who wants to deliver for New Mexico.
The ad comes after harsh criticism from her opponent, former state Rep. Yvette Herrell’s campaign, releasing an ad with Cibola County Sheriff Tony Mace blasting Torres Small for her anti-gun policies, namely, her support for a radical “universal background check” bill that would rip New Mexicans’ guns away.
Torres Small has voted 95% of the time with left-wing Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and voted with her party on most major bills, including the Democrats’ impeachment inquisition, which the Senate totally exonerated Trump on all counts. Torres Small also hired an ex-lobbyist from Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun group, Everytown, as her campaign manager for this cycle, which Piñon Post first reported on.
