In the wake of the tragic shootings in Tucson, Arizona last month, candidate Carly Melin is criticizing an opponent's ad showing a hunter pointing a shotgun down range with the words "Take Your Best Shot" floating above the hunter. According to the Star Tribune, Melin called the ad "pretty disturbing" and is calling for the GOP to disavow the ad.

Melin said she has requested uniformed officers at a debate Wednesday. She said she supports hunting rights and got her first firearm at 14.
