The NRA Political Victory Fund has launched a television ad in North Carolina and three other battleground states criticizing Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

The NRA PAC is spending $3 million in the four states to air the 30-second spot that calls Clinton “an out of touch hypocrite” who travels with armed security, but would “leave you defenseless.” The ad is also running in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Nevada.

The ad release comes the day after Republican Donald Trump, who has the NRA’s endorsement, made widely criticized remarks in Wilmington about gun rights advocates that some heard as a threat to Clinton or Supreme Court justices.

“If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks,” Trump said at Tuesday’s rally. “Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is. I don’t know.”

Trump said in a later interview he was talking about “political power,” not violence.
