In order to prove he supports the Second Amendment, Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore pulled a pistol during a campaign rally on Monday night.
Moore is challenging Luther Strange, who has been endorsed by President Donald Trump, in the Senate primary race. During the rally, Moore accused Strange of running false ads against him.
“This has been very hard for my wife and for myself,” Moore told the crowd. “We’ve had two or three months of negative ads that we couldn’t answer with money because we didn’t have any.”
“Ads that were completely false–that I don’t believe in the Second Amendment,” he said, reaching to his hip.
Moore pulled out a small pistol, reassuring the crowd, “I believe in the Second Amendment.”
Some members of the crowd laughed and cheered when he pulled out the gun. Moore flashed the firearm only briefly before returning it to his side.
