Alishia Wolcott was supposed to sing the national anthem before a minor league baseball game in Nevada this summer. But when the team enacted a policy that prevented her from bringing her gun, she bowed out, The Associated Press reported.
“I will not sing our national anthem at a place that seeks to strip me of my Second Amendment rights,” Wolcott wrote in a letter to the team, the Reno Aces.
Wolcott earned her concealed carry permit earlier this year, and carries a Glock 43 9 mm pistol with her for protection. She keeps it with her because she doesn’t feel safe walking around at night, she said.
