A Republican candidate running for the New Jersey state Senate urged an group of gun rights activists earlier this month to get their guns if approached by his Democratic opponent.
The candidate, Atlantic County Sheriff Frank Balles, was discussing his Democratic opponent, state Sen. Jim Whelan, on Oct. 7 in front of the New Jersey Second Amendment Society.
"When someone's been elected for 30 years and he comes knocking on your door and tells you, 'Listen, this is what I want to do to help you,' quickly close your door, go inside," Balles said.
A member of the audience quickly interjected, "And get your gun!"
Balles quickly responded, "And get your gun, exactly!"
