11:02 pm
debate stage and while they were certainly not shy about going after each other with criticisms they also managed to find some common ground in this one at least when it came to the independent candidate in this written the end of etiquette it was on stage with him tonight shawn o'connor let's get a recap of what did take place during that debate with adam sexton who is standing by live. reporter: josh the past 3 debates between carol shea-porter and frank guinta have been tense and testy affairs this one was a little bit lighter, even when the candidates were mixing it up but that had a lot to do with the fact that they had someone else on stage to attack. >> -- race, and endorsed bernie sanders. >> ok, ok i got this, alright? reporter: in their 4th granite state debate match-up frank guinta and carol shea-porter joined forces to tag-team the new candidate on their turf, independent shawn o'connor. >> for the last decade the voters of this district have had to choose between one hyper-partisan or the other, and they've fired them constantly, one after another after another. reporter: both repeat candidates
11:03 pm
>> he had a boutique business that helped people get into law school. we need jobs that people can actually have right now. reporter: guinta slammed o'connor as a bernie sanders progressive. >> mr. o'connor has identified himself as a progressive democrat, a bernie-crat, and that's why he was running for a year and a half in the democratic primary. >> i understand that both the congresswoman and the congressman are upset about my meteoric rise in the polls, but the fact of the matter is i hampshire. reporter: shea-porter was first elected to congress in 2006 on her strong opposition to the iraq war. when it comes to sending ground troops back to the middle east to defeat isis she says no. >> we would not be welcomed, our presence would not be helpful. now do we need special forces there? yes we do. reporter: frank guinta stood up for rochester conservative activist jerry delemus, who is facing charges in connection with the bundy ranch standoff
11:04 pm
>> he went out there in a peacekeeping mission. do i think there was government overreach here? yes i do. reporter: when it comes to whether anyone can change the atmosphere in congress everyone touted their bipartisan credentials. >> i've worked for democrats and i've worked for republicans. my opponents are hyper-partisan and they mock me for that i actually think there's some value in that. >> no other republican can say they've gotten six pieces of legislation signed into law by this president. president obama and i don't agree on much, but he was >> when the republicans are taking a trip they told me they like to go with me because i don't fight with them, and i'm very proud of that. reporter: so the two candidates who could barely make eye contact with each other found some common ground tonight in attacking an independent challenger how it shakes out on election day remains to be seen. josh, let's go back inside to you.
11:05 pm
interesting dynamic in this arena question about a things very much i do now all the candidates to the spin room immediately following the debate shawn o'connor said that he made his case frank attended a pretty good his for what he really is a political outsider in this race despite the long political resume well carol shea-porter said she is not too concerned about independent candidate in this race at all here is what they had to say. >> anybody can run. $50. so, and i remind people that i was not the choice in 2006 and you just put your head dan you make the case to the people about why it should be you. so, i love the way new hampshire does politics. anybody can get on the ballot. >> there's serving and getting things done, and then there's being an insider within the party, an insider by the establishment. i mean i think it was, the establishment in this state made it abundantly clear that i'm an outsider. and i will take that label any time. >> i think that tonight we saw
11:06 pm
bickering between carol shea porter and frank guinta, and both of them are clearly scared that i'm surging right at the right time because they were attacking me with their typical dc politician party lines. reporter: and i am joined now by my colleague john on the panel tonight obviously the candidates -- [indiscernible] we arede the spotlight -- he did not wilt. >> it was sort of like a party crasher i have become used to seeing them on stage but they did touch a lot of issues. they talked about the second amendment, foreign policy, campaign finance reform and the influence if any of political action committees was also an area where there was a lot of bickering back-and-forth with o'connor trying to say that he
11:07 pm
areas is. reporter:he minute win this race but certainly a longshot shawn o'connor but they are concerned about who he is siphoning for some that is very pannaway manor is probably about 50% according to our last poll the conventional wisdom is -- wisdom is that he is taken out of the more from shea-porter that is not absolutely a reporter: definite -- we do not really know until election day. yeah, the voters was a that is so much more -- worry is about all the division and we have seen in this election will here is a positive sign you caught this as they were walking out have a look at this photograph year. will take place after all this -- >> their families walked out together -- >> ok because it back to you very much, jon, debate nine number for the final tomorrow and the second-seeded it doesn't affect you in the studio guys. tom: lee ford to a thank you gentlemen. with the election in just days away local gun store owners, gun manufacturers and the fbi are reporting surging gun sales. wmur's cherise leclerc spoke with a salem gun shop owner who's using the election momentum to drum up sales. reporter: brian barry owns next
11:08 pm
holding an election special through november 9 and while he opened his business fairly recently, he's already seen the difference an election year can make in his bottom line. >> it's a beautiful right to see people exercise. reporter: gun store owner brian barry is reaping the rewards of a long and embattled election cycle. he opened his store in salem five months ago and is embracing the effects the election is having on business. >> you just see the pattern forming at presidential election changed in what i feel could be a negative way. reporter: the fbi is reporting record numbers for gun background checks for the month of october. more than 2.3 million checks were done last month, up from about 1.9 million in september. with more people getting their hands on guns, state representative renny cushing says he respects 2nd amendment rights but thinks the granite state is ready for common sense policies regarding background
11:09 pm
illness having access to guns, not having people who have engaged in domestic violence have easy access to guns, not having terrorists have easy access to guns. reporter: cushing is on the criminal justice and public safety committee and founded a group called murder victims' families for human rights after losing both his father and brother in law to gun violence. >> i think we also have a responsibility to make sure that people who are not fit to have guns don't have easy access to them repo no matter what side of the gun control debate you may be on. >> that's the beauty of this country, we can just have our civil disagreements and move on. >> i think that's what's most important is that we have conversations and try to understand people. reporter: gun store owner brian barry expects the sales to continue soaring as people remain uncertain about how their elected officials will handle gun policy. live in the studio cherise
