GOP Senator’s Mass Murder ‘Ad Quickly Removed After Highland Park Shooting

A Republican senator apparently wanted an awkwardly inaccurate radio ad about the cause of the “latest massacre” of the air after the shooting in Highland Park, Illinois, on Monday.

The campaign of Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), Who is seeking re-election, wanted the ad that shot down gunfire from the air after the mass shooting at a Fourth of July parade that left at least seven people dead and injured dozens more, according to emails outlined by The Intercept.

“The latest massacre in America did not involve guns,” the ad begins, referring to the 53 people found dead or dying in a sweltering tractor trailer left on June 27 on the outskirts of San Antonio. migrating smuggling operation.

A vice president of sales at Katz Radio Group, who worked to make the ad for Johnson’s campaign, reportedly requested that the ad be “pulled” as soon as possible after the Highland Park shooting.

The Katz Radio manager said: “If you listened to the place, it’s talking about mass shooting, which of course is not very creative after this past weekend (especially in Chicago).”

Johnson was an arms control opponent and received a rating of 83% or higher by groups including the National Rifle Association, the National Shooting Sports Foundation and Gun Owners of America, according to the non-profit organization Vote Smart.

A 21-year-old man has been charged with seven counts of first-degree murder in connection with the parade shooting. According to Highland Park Mayor Nancy Rotering, the suspect allegedly bought the gun, which police described as a “high-powered gun,” legally.
