Kari Lake, a Republican candidate for the Arizona Senate, stirred controversy with remarks suggesting supporters should “strap on a Glock” in anticipation of intense political challenges leading up to the 2024 election.

Addressing a gathering in Lake Havasu City, Ariz., Lake emphasized the intensity of the upcoming months and urged supporters to be prepared.

While initially referencing safety measures like seat belts and helmets, she then mentioned putting on the “armor of God” to cheers from the crowd.

Lake’s comments took a contentious turn when she suggested considering carrying a Glock for self-defense, emphasizing the importance of protecting Second Amendment rights and resisting perceived threats to freedom of speech.

Lake is vying for the Senate seat currently held by Senator Kyrsten Sinema, facing off against Democratic Representative Ruben Gallego. With Republicans eyeing the Arizona Senate race as a potential opportunity to regain the majority in the Senate, Lake’s remarks have garnered attention and sparked debate.

A spokesperson for Lake clarified that her comments were focused on advocating for Arizonans’ rights to self-defense, particularly in light of increasing crime rates nationwide.

However, Democrats have seized upon Lake’s past controversial statements, particularly regarding abortion and her criticism of late Senator John McCain. Despite attempts to reconcile with skeptical Republicans, Lake continues to face scrutiny over her remarks and political stances.
