FrankBallesNow, we would not be so irresponsible and provocative to suggest that Atlantic County Sheriff Frank Balles, now running as Republican candidate for the New Jersey State Senate, wants his Democratic opponent, incumbent Senator Jim Whelan, dead, but

“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!”

Video of Balles’ appearance was posted by the pro-gun group Bold Departure. His comments were part of a speech in which he was explaining his positions on guns. (He strongly opposes a range of gun restrictions laws.)
