Arizona state senator Wendy Rogers pushed back against the left’s attack on gun rights and proposed more guns be put in the hands of good guys, in a powerful new political ad.
In her message released Thursday, Rogers argued that with America’s high crime rate, more people should be armed to protect themselves and others.
“Hi, I’m Senator Wendy Rogers, conservative Republican running to be reelected to the Arizona Senate. Our nation has a crime problem. And I want to talk to you about self-defense and the right to keep and bear arms,” said the former Air Force pilot while wielding a shotgun.

The Republican senator representing Arizona’s 6th district went on to point out she’s promoted defending schools by arming teachers and faculty in the wake of school shootings, saying,
“Most of these tragic shootings we hear about occur in gun-free zones. The shooters pick places they consider to be soft targets. That’s why I proposed campus carry, which cleared the Arizona Senate Judiciary Committee to allow students over 18, who have a concealed carry permit, to carry on campus for their own protection. That’s why I proposed and got passed into law declaring firearms manufacturers and retailers as essential businesses.”
“That is why I support school resource officers as well as arming trained teachers and administrators as they do in Israel and other states in our own country. And almost every instance where someone was on the scene with a firearm, the violent criminal was neutralized. We need more good guys with guns.”
Additionally, Rogers acknowledges globalists would rather have a disarmed, easy-to-control populace unable to defend themselves, highlighting Communist China as the model.
“The global communists in our country and around the world want Americans disarmed so they can treat us as the people of China are treated. Lockdowns where people are bolted into their homes and not allowed to leave. Parents being dragged off to COVID camps and children left to fend for themselves or worse.”
Rogers concluded firearms are necessary to keep tyranny at bay, and urged Arizonans interested in preserving their right to self-defense to cast their votes for her.
“Tyranny must never be allowed to thrive in this country. Our right to keep and bear arms protects everyone. It protects our schools. It protects our families. It protects you and me. To protect our gun rights, please reelect me to the Arizona Senate. Thank you, Wendy Rogers, out.”
In the past, Rogers has been demonized by the liberal media for questioning the 2020 election results and for supporting President Donald Trump.
“Incumbent Wendy Rogers and incumbent Kelly Townsend are running in the Republican primary for Arizona State Senate District 7 on August 2, 2022,” according to Ballotpedia.org.
