Tate shared his thoughts on the situation, retweeting Wilder’s recent tweet regarding the importance of personal safety.
In his tweet, Tate agreed with Wilder’s sentiment and put his own spin on the phrase “Prevention is better than cure”. Instead, he wrote, “Better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6 my G”.
It appears that Tate is encouraging Wilder to disregard any negative opinions from others about him carrying a firearm in his car.
