Fresh off an endorsement by the National Rifle Association, U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks' senate campaign released the latest advertisement of the election cycle, "Shall Not Be Infringed."

The 30-second spot highlights Brooks' consistent support for the Second Amendment's protected right to keep and bear arms in the wake of the assassination attempts on him and several other Republican members of Congress at a 2017 Republican baseball practice in Alexandria, Va.

According to investigators, the gunman, who was believed to be a supporter of liberal U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, had a list of targets with Brooks' name at the top.

"Mo Brooks understands that the purpose of the Second Amendment is to ensure that we always remain a Republic," Brooks' campaign manager Forrest Barnwell-Hagemeyer said in a statement accompanying the ad's release. "He has fought his entire career to protect the Second Amendment. It's why he has received an A+ rating from Gun Owners of America and has been endorsed for Senate by the NRA and National Association for Gun Rights. At a time when the deranged Left is increasingly trying to destroy the freedoms guaranteed in the Constitution, Alabamians know that if they want someone in the Senate who will fight to defend the Second Amendment, Mo Brooks is their guy."

Police find Mo Brooks' name at the top of the gunman's kill list.

Liberal media immediately asks Mo Brooks if he still supports the right to bear arms...

Reporter: "Congressman, does this change your views on the gun situation in America?"

Brooks: "The Second Amendment right to bear Arms is to help ensure that we always have a Republic. So no, I'm not changing my position on ANY of the rights that we enjoy as Americans."

I'm Mo Brooks and you better believe I approve this message.
