Guns and Crime

Roy Moore showed a purse pistol at his rally and the media had a heart attack

Published

on

Monday night, at what’s been called Roy Moore’s pre-election victory party in Alabama, the candidate locked in a GOP Senate runoff with Sen. Luther Strange pulled out a tiny, shiny pistol. It looked to me like a .32 revolver, the kind a woman keeps in her purse.

The barrel might have been an inch long, if that.

And the media had a collective heart attack. You’d have thought Moore pulled a Browning Automatic Rifle from a duffle bag, loaded a 20-round magazine, and pulled back the bolt.

Of course, the collective liberal twitterverse echoed this sentiment.

Phil Robertson, who shared the stage with Moore, might have used that little pistol to kill flies, or snakes. But fear of firearms is one of the left’s best talking points.

I’m the one that used guns in combat. I know what guns do … Guns don’t kill, people kill. (You could say) cars kill, are we going to get rid of our cars? Are we going to get rid of our knives? No. We’ve got to bring morality back to our country,” Moore said after putting his gun away.

Moore was met with a large applause by his supporters in the audience. “We’ve got to uphold the Second Amendment,” he said.

Reactions

Final Thoughts

Come on! It was a tiny handgun. It was probably his wife’s. People in Alabama carry bigger pistols than that in their socks. But any gun at all to the left makes one a homicidal maniac.

Don’t you know that guns kill people, in the middle of the night, by themselves?
