The GOP's enfant terrible in Alabama donned full cowboy regalia and whipped out his snub nose .38 revolver during a campaign rally last night. Just because.

The night before Alabama's Senate runoff, Republican candidate Roy Moore pulled a gun out of his pocket at a campaign rally.

Per a video of the Monday rally, the former Alabama chief justice said false ads had said he didn't believe in the Second Amendment.

"Nearly three months of negative ads that we couldn't answer with money because we didn't have it," he said. "Ads that were completely false, that I don't believe in the Second Amendment."

He then paused before pulling the gun out.

"I believe in the Second Amendment," he said, leading to cheers from the crowd.
