Former GOP House candidate: Schoolchildren should be armed to ‘intervene’ if a school shooter comes

DeAnna Lorraine, who unsuccessfully ran as a Republican for the U.S. House in 2020, has rebranded herself over the last few years as a vocal proponent of the QAnon conspiracy cult. She also has opinions on how to prevent school shootings.

Speaking to livestreamer and diehard Trump supporter Matt Couch, Lorraine referred to a recent political ad showing a child going back to school while wearing body armor, saying the creators of the ad are “trying to pull on people’s heart strings.”

“Sorry, but I wanna teach my son how to handle a gun,” Lorraine said. “I want to teach my son how to intelligently use guns and operate them because there is gonna be a threat someday, and they’re going to be in danger someday, and I want them to be able to protect themselves.”

Lorraine went on to say that she wants her son to know how to “kick some ass out there and maybe intervene when a shooter comes and shoots their asses.”

“I don’t want them going to school defenseless or scared, I want them to be able to know how to protect themselves.”

Couch then later chimed in that it’s “amazing that we can send $80 billion to Ukraine but we can’t arm our schools and protect our own children.”
