A black Republican pastor running for Congress in Arizona dropped an ad Wednesday in which he uses an AR-15 to confront members of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK).
Jerone is running to represent Arizona’s fourth congressional District. In the ad dropped on Twitter with the caption “Make Rifles Great Again,” Davison says sometimes an AR-15 is needed.
“Democrats like to say that no one needs an AR-15 for self defense. That no one could possibly need all 30 rounds. You might still need the semi-automatic if this gun is all that stands between you and twelve angry Klan hood Democrats. And all 30 rounds.”
Make Rifles Great Again

The video shows Davison sitting at his kitchen table drinking from an American flag mug as KKK members armed with pitchforks and other weapons surround his house. Davison then appears at the door with an AR-15 in hand as members of the KKK approach. (RELATED: Ted Cruz Says Critical Race Theory Is ‘Every Bit As Racist As The Klansmen In White Sheets’)
Davison walks out of the house, stopping the Klansmen in their tracks as they throw their hands up in surrender and flee. A white hood is seen floating in water at the end.
Davison grew up in Mississippi and dropped out of high school, according to his campaign website.
