Miss America’s gun control answer highlights America’s real problem

mallory haganMallory Hagen made New York doubly proud Saturday night, winning the Miss America crown and expressing a point of view on gun control most likely shared by many in the uber-liberal Big Apple, where more than 80 percent of the state’s voters helped re-elect President Obama.

In the question portion of Saturday’s competition, Hagen was asked,

“In the wake of the Newtown tragedy, there has been a lot of talk about gun control. One solution being proposed is [to put] an armed guard in every school. Do you think that would make our schools safer?”

Like Moore son-in-law in A Man for All Seasons, who would cut down every law in England to get at the Devil, but would have no place to hide when the Devil then turned upon him, “the laws all being flat”.
