Gun Nuts vs. Miss America?
Next thing you know, they'll go after apple pie for making us wimpy. You may have heard that newly-picked Miss America, who is from New York--naturally--sort of came out for gun control during the pageant last night. Daring to say maybe arming teachers is not way to stop school shootings. Anyway: rightwingers having a cow over it. See report here. A few quotes: “The girl is cute, but she lives in a bubble like her head.” "Spoken like a true libtard." “So Mallory Hagan rather the victims get killed than fight back? She belongs in the UK (with Piers Morgan) not America.”
