Saying this is a vital issue on which teenagers should get to speak their mind, prospective two-time U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore offered to hear the other side on gun control today.
“Shooters are mostly men, so I believe it is our young women that I should be sounding out – particularly those still in school given recent tragic events.”
Moore rejected the cynical approach of some other Republicans who say those still in school are not mature enough to understand the issues surrounding gun violence and the 2nd amendment.
“Just because they are young does not mean we shouldn’t pull them in close to us to listen to what they have to say.”
He says he is ready to meet with middle school and young-looking high school girls anywhere that’s convenient – even at the mall – to listen to their concerns about ease of access to firearms, and to offer comfort in these frightening times.
“Despite my well-known pro-gun stance, I feel very strongly that these passionate young ladies be invited into our hearts.”
