LAS VEGAS (AP) - The National Rifle Association is running ads in Nevada accusing Hillary Clinton of trying to leave people defenseless.

The group launched a $3 million ad campaign Wednesday in battleground states including Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and North Carolina.

The ad describes Clinton as one of the wealthiest women in politics who’s been protected by armed guards for 30 years. It features a dramatization of her walking onto a private plane while a Secret Service detail stands by.

A narrator says Clinton doesn’t believe in the average citizen’s right to keep a gun at home for self-defense, and calls her an out-of-touch hypocrite.

Clinton’s campaign issued a statement to CNN saying the gun lobby is spreading lies and defending Donald Trump “because they know Trump will always do their bidding.”
