Dem. Pryor: No one tells me what to do

(CNN) – After a barrage of television ads hit Arkansas airwaves criticizing Sen. Mark Pryor, the Democrat is going up with his own spot defending himself as an independent mind beholden to no special interests.

"The mayor of New York City is running ads against me because I oppose President Obama's gun control legislation," Pryor says in the spot. "Nothing in the Obama plan would have prevented tragedies like Newtown, Aurora, Tucson, or even Jonesboro. I'm committed to finding real solutions to gun violence while protecting our second amendment rights."
