Former It girl Lady Victoria Hervey has revealed she carries a gun in the US and will not give up on her despite the atrocities committed by Uvalde.

The British socialite, who lives in LA – and now trains at a shooting range – told the Sunday Mirror: “I think we should be able to have guns. It makes me feel safer.”

She said the killing of 19 children and two teachers in Texas was “horrific,” but claimed a ban would result in “genocide” in America.

Last November, she bought a Glock 19 pistol, once standard for the LA police force. She said: “It’s scary what’s happening in Hollywood. The amount of people I know who have had a home invasion and survived because they had a gun.”

Lady Victoria claimed that more concealed carry gun licenses were being issued in California as “police forces encourage people to be able to defend themselves”.

But she added: “They need to make things stricter so guns don’t fall into the wrong hands.”

She spoke out after Uvalde-raised Hollywood actor Matthew McConaughey advocated gun control laws in a speech at the White House on Tuesday.

The Oscar winner called for better background checks and an increase in the minimum age to purchase the AR-15-style rifle used in filming from 18 to 21.

Lady Victoria said she supported his request but argued that Americans should be able to protect themselves.

“I think the age limit for owning a gun should be higher and there should be very strict medical screening.

“I know people with guns who think the shooting was horrific, but they see it as something that unfortunately happened and the likelihood isn’t that high compared to other things that kill us that aren’t prohibited.

“Many more people die from heart disease each year than from guns. The chances of someone being shot at school are not that high.”

She added: “To take away the right [to carry guns] could be disastrous. It could lead to mass genocide if the government went to war against its people.”

She said LA is so dangerous now. “I’m moving to Florida. I bought a gun because I heard so many horrible stories.” In our exclusive snaps, she is seen at a shooting range with her Glock.

“I’ve never had to use my gun and hopefully never will,” she said. “But I know people who have done it and it has saved their lives.”

More than 730 people have been shot dead in the United States since Uvalde on May 24. Among them are 23 young children and 66 teenagers, according to the Gun Violence Archive. It says 8,576 have died in gun homicides, robberies and accidents that year.
