A Republican senator has opted for a curveball of an election slogan, touting bumper stickers which say "If babies had guns, they wouldn't be aborted."
Steve Stockman, of Texas, who is avidly pro-gun and anti-abortion, tweeted the new bumper sticker on Friday, with a link to his campaign page.

Stockman recently invited all gun owners and manufacturers who feel “unwanted” and “persecuted” by their states’ gun control policies to move to Texas.
He published an open letter a day after Connecticut passed strict gun control laws in the wake of the school massacre in Newtown.
“Recent draconian gun legislation passed in Colorado, Connecticut and Maryland has made those states unfriendly to law abiding gun owners, weapons manufacturers, and weapons parts manufacturers,” Stockman wrote. “These states have proven they do not value those who obey the law and pump millions of dollars into local economies. This is not the way for government to treat people.”
“Come to Texas!!!” Stockman pitched. “Your rights will not be infringed upon here, unlike many local current regimes.”
