    Miss South Carolina Shoots Down Gun Control Push During Miss America Pageant

    In stark contrast to stereotypical questions questions about world peace and fighting poverty, Miss South Carolina Daja Dial was asked if she would support an assault weapons ban when it was her turn to answer questions during the September 13 Miss America pageant. Dial said she would not support such a measure, and explained that she believes a clearer focus on firearm responsibility is of greater value than more gun control.
    The question about gun control came from Amy Purdy, who said, “America loves our Second Amendment, but gun violence continues to be a tragic problem. Do you support a ban on military-style assault weapons?”

    Dial responded:

    I don’t [support such a ban]…we need to increase education. We have to go back there. If we teach people the proper way to use guns, then we will reduce the risk of having gun-related accidents. It starts with education.

    Shortly thereafter, the Miss America Organization used a Facebook post to be sure everyone knew Miss South Carolina opposed an “assault weapons” ban.

    In September 2014 The New York Times ran a column explaining that the very term “assault weapons” is one which the “Democrats created” in the 1990s in order to ban “a politically defined category of guns.” And they explained that the so-called threat posed by the private ownership of “assault weapons” is mythological in comparison to FBI stats on the actual use of such guns in crime.

    The NYT report squared perfectly with a Breitbart News report which showed that all rifle-related deaths combined made up “.012 percent of the overall deaths in America in 2011.” The percentage of deaths in which “assault weapons” alone were involved would have been even less than .012 percent, yet Miss South Carolina was asked if she supported banning such guns.
