AZ-SEN: US Republican Kari Lake tells supporters: 'Strap on a Glock' as election nears

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kari Lake, an ardent supporter of former president Donald Trump, urged supporters in Arizona to "strap on a Glock" pistol as they prepare for what she called an intense six months leading up to the Nov. 5 elections.

"We are going to put on the armor of God. Then maybe strap on a Glock," Lake told a cheering audience at an Arizona rally on Sunday.

"You can put one (Glock) here," she said, touching her right hip. "And one in the back, or one in the front, whatever you guys decide."

Her campaign did not respond to queries seeking comment.

Been good, very busy lately, that's why I haven't been posting as much as I usually do.
Have some time off due to my truck being in for her B service and a new clutch, them, back at it again.

Hope you're doing well also and good things are happening for you.
Peace out my friend
Daniel.

Ranchers, isolated homes, etc., owning a firearm is a necessity.

They are tools, to protect against dangerous animals, and in areas where a police response may take a very long time.

They aren't used as low self esteem compensation, and legitimate owners don't stockpile body armour or other stuff used to go on an insane rampage.

and the rhetoric and threat of violence increasing month after month and seeing these idiots are not budging.... and reading all the shit here on DU regularly doesn't put me at any greater east.

As I get older, I realize what is happening might not be as fleeting as I would have thought when I was younger. I have more to lose now and my love for and concern for the protection of my family has grown ever more.

FFS, I've contemplated getting an AR.. Never would have thought that 8-10 years ago.. but I'm headed that direction. WTF?

could ever know....I doubt even a good therapist could make a dent in any of them.

I keep hearing that there are functional psychopaths in society....I suspect that the Republican party boasts a far larger percentage of them than society at large.

That’s actually a frightening amount when you think about it. That’s like 3-12 million in our country alone. And yeah, I bet the Republican Party has a large percentage of them, especially their leadership.

to want power over others. Congresscritters have a lot of it, leadership even more.

And I can't think of a single Republican who seems to want to serve the people they represent more than they want to accumulate money and personal power.

I'm sure Kari Lake remembers Sarah Palin's infamous "crosshairs map" targeting Giffords' district before the shooting. This woman makes MTG and Boebert look sane.
