(Newser) – Good ol' Alaska boy Levi Johnston launched his campaign for mayor of Wasilla totin' a rifle in a gun shop. Bristol Palin's babydaddy cavorted with customers at his fave trigger store, Chimo Gun, and apparently flirted with buying a $2,000 Weatherby Ultra Lightweight hunting rifle—but left empty-handed. The demands of his campaign and reality show haven't left the wanna-be mayor any time lately to indulge in his favorite sport, bagging Dall sheep, notes TMZ. Let's hope he shoots blanks when he gets back in the field.
