Roy Moore is a former judge running for a Senate seat in the state of Alabama. On a Monday rally, relating to his support for the Second Amendment of the Constitution, he took out a pistol hand-gun, brandishing it for his supporters to view. He is contending, incumbent Senator Luther Strange.
The last time a federal politician brandished a “gun” for show, was Mitch McConnell at CPAC in 2014.
“On Tuesday, voters in Alabama will choose between two very different political styles: a flame-throwing wild card and an Establishment-backed reliable vote. But as the Alabama Republican Senate primary draws to a close, the differences between incumbent Sen. Luther Strange and conservative firebrand Roy Moore amount to whether voters are happy with the status quo in Washington, and how they felt about their last governor.” – TIME
This runoff voting is on September 26th.
