Miss South Carolina Gets Asked a Question About ‘Assault Weapons.’ Her Brilliant Response is Going Viral

In recent years, the Miss America pageant, like virtually all American fixtures, has become more politicized. Lobbing controversial topics at the contestants and then snarling when they offer an opinion they don’t like, the judges often reveal themselves to be partisans in the pressing issues of our day.

On Sunday, Miss South Carolina stood up for the Second Amendment in a brilliant answer that is going viral. However, it may have cost her the title.

Miss South Carolina Daja Dial was asked a loaded question about the Second Amendment, but the Southern beauty contestant was ready.

Using extremely loaded language like “military-style” and “assault weapons,” the judge asked,

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

“I don’t,” the contestant replied. “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.”

The judge obviously expected a typical liberal response that centered on emotions over rational thought. However, Ms. Dial’s response was reasoned, thoughtful and precisely the kind of assertion the left absolutely hates.

Since her brave stance, the video has gone viral and many are praising the principled beauty. However, perhaps because of her bravery, she lost the competition with Miss Georgia being crowned Miss America.
