Antonia Okafor is a Second Amendment advocate and the Founder of EMPOWERED, a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating, training, and equipping young women in the use of firearms for protection on college campuses. She joined us to talk about the practical reasons why young women should arm themselves, gun ownership in minority communities, and what's behind the skyrocketing demand for firearms since the rise of COVID-19.
Antonia was the Southwest Regional Director for Students for Concealed Carry on Campus and was instrumental in the passage and implementation of Texas’ 2015 “campus carry” law. Read her NY Times oped "Why I Bring My Gun to School" here. Follow Antonia on Twitter at @antonia_okafor.
