ANTI-SECOND AMENDMENT ADVOCATES LIVID WITH PALMETTO STATE PAGEANT PARTICIPANT …
|| 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?”
“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?
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.
