“Listen, no one wants shootings. No one wants death. But we need a way to protect ourselves. We need a way to actually end it.
“And if you look at statistics, if you look at the FBI and their database, well, places where American citizens are not infringed on their Second Amendment rights and they are actually able to carry their firearm lawfully, well, there aren’t mass shootings.
“Because they are an armed citizen presence to neutralize the threat. They’re coming after your guns.” – Lauren Boebert, speaking to Breitbart News.
States with open carry laws include Texas (Uvalde, 21 deaths) and Nevada (Route 91 Festival, 59 deaths).
