I must be getting old. While the Miss America pageant’s swimsuit competition was all well and good, I couldn’t wait for the Q&A session. That’s where the contest gets real – in a fake sort of way. At least that’s how it used to be when the words “world peace” were never far from a contestant’s lips, even when the question was about cheating in the NFL. OK, Deflategate was a modern question. And so was “Do you support a ban of military-style (as opposed to Ferragamo-style) assault weapons?” Playing beat the, uh, clock, Miss South Carolina’s answer lacked a certain je ne sais quoi . . .
I don’t, but I think it’s because we need to increase education. We have to go back there (?) and teach people proper way to use guns reduce the risk of having gun-related, um, gun-related accidents. It starts with education.
Great landing, wrong airport. Firearms education is all well and good, but it’s no reason to oppose an “assault weapons” ban. A better reason would be a ban violates Americans’ right to keep and bear arms. But that’s easy for me to say when I haven’t paraded my ass all over national TV wearing heels so high they have their own weather system.
