(NEW YORK) — Ohio State Rep. Ron Maag wants to show voters he’s a straight shooter.
The two-term Republican, who is running for re-election, hosted a “machine gun social” Saturday at the Lake Bailee Gun Club in Hamilton, Ohio.
“Lots of full auto guns you can pay to shoot,” said an advertisement for the event, which was posted on Maag’s website.
The 66-year-old tweeted a picture of a bald eagle that flew above the range Saturday.
“Great day at the Machine Gun Social. Come join us,” said another tweet.
Neither he nor his opponent, Mike Kassalen, support increasing gun control laws, according to their websites.
Maag did not immediately return a message from ABC News.
