Miss America Contestant Says No To Gun Control

posted on September 15, 2015

Miss South Carolina 2015 Daja Dial was asked the following loaded question during the Miss America 2016 beauty pageant: “Do you support a ban on military-style assault weapons?” The phrasing seemed designed to fish for a “yes” answer, but Dial didn’t comply.

“I don’t, but I think it’s because we need to increase education,” Dial responded. “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.” Dial failed to win the contest despite having been identified as a fan favorite and frontrunner, leading some to question whether her pro-gun stance cost her the top place. Regardless, it looks like she picked up some new liberty-loving fans last night!
