Gun Love For Miss South Carolina




|| By FITSNEWS || Gun grabbers are livid with Miss South Carolina Daja Dial for her response to a question about gun violence during this week’s Miss America pageant.

“America loves our Second Amendment, but gun violence continues to be a tragic problem,” Dial was asked.  “Do you support a ban on military-style assault weapons?”

Her response?

“I don’t, but I think it’s because we need to increase education,” Dial said.  “If we teach people the right way to use guns, then we will reduce the risk of having gun-related accidents. It starts with education.”

Left-wing apoplexy ensued …

“Dial chose to categorize acts of gun violence – like the June 17 massacre at the Mother Emanuel Church – as an ‘accident,'” Chris Haire of The (Charleston, S.C.) City Paper wrote, adding that Dial’s answer “belittle(d) the deaths of the Emanuel Nine.”

Wait … what?

Guns did not cause the “Holy City Massacre” – which killed nine black parishioners at the Mother Emanuel AME church three months ago.  Nor did the Confederate flag.  Irrational hatred – born out of a lack of opportunity – was (is) the real killer.

Now, did Dial sidestep the question posed to her?  Sure.  She’s a pageant participant.  Canned answers is their modus operandi.  In fact the only place you’re going to get a less illuminating, more deflective answer to a question like that is if you were to ask it at a political debate.

The only difference?  Dial is not being asked to formulate domestic policy … she’s being judged on her looks. Her body. And her ability to carry a tune.

Seriously, what’s next: Are we going to start asking Toddlers and Tiaras participants what they think of the Iranian nuclear deal?

And then ripping them when they don’t answer to our satisfaction?

Sheesh …

As for this website, we will continue to call out the uber-liberal “gun grabbers” while at the same time urging civil disobedience of any law (federal, state or local) which infringes upon the constitutionally guaranteed right to bear arms.
