Alishia Wolcott – Refused to sing the National Anthem in a “Gun Free Zone” where she felt her Constitutional Rights were being infringed on.
“The primary reason I am a gun owner is because I live in a country where the basis of my liberty and freedom is a God-given right to protect myself from anyone. And I desire to live in such a way that I protect this right all the time, anywhere I go. To put it simply, I want the option to be able to carry my gun. That is the beauty of this liberty, I get the choice whether or not I want to protect myself at any time or place.
I was born and raised in Reno, Nevada. I graduated from University of Nevada, Reno with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology in 2016. I have always had a deep love for this country and music (I grew up taking professional voice lessons, singing in choir, talent shows, school sporting events, worship team, and various other opportunities), therefore I am always honored to have the chance to sing our National Anthem. There are few opportunities outside of singing at church and singing the National Anthem that I take so personally and have such a passion for.”
