    Recently, the mask debate has merged with another divisive political issue: gun laws. Memes have circulated widely on social media, with the false claim that wearing a mask “removes your concealed carry ability.” Example: http://archive.is/hCVwO

    (July 23, 2020): New Mexico deputies: Man killed following fight over mask https://www.startribune.com/new-mexico-deputies-man-killed-following-fight-over-mask/571880082/
    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — New Mexico authorities are investigating a deadly shooting at an auto shop after a man who refused to wear a mask allegedly tried to run over the shop owner’s son and crashed into a vehicle before driving off.
    An incident report written by Bernalillo County sheriff’s deputies say as they were searching for the man, they received a call from the shop owner saying the man had returned and that his son had shot someone.
    Deputies found two men on the ground. One didn’t have a pulse.
    …The state’s mandate that everyone must wear face coverings in public has been in effect since May 16. Operators of essential businesses must require customers to wear masks, and violators are subject to a fine.

    Two U.S. House members have introduced a bill that would fine their colleagues $1,000 if they refuse to wear a mask while in the Capitol complex. Other lawmakers have called for mask penalties, but this is the first legislative proposal to do so. https://www.newsweek.com/1000-day-fine-maskless-lawmakers-proposed-house-dems-after-3-reps-get-coronavirus-1560969
    Reps. Debbie Dingell (D-Mich.) and Anthony G. Brown (D-Md.) announced the bill after two more lawmakers, Reps. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) and Bradley Schneider (D-Ill.), tested positive for the coronavirus after sheltering with Republican colleagues who refused to don masks during the Capitol riot last week. Jayapal said she was immediately concerned that she was exposed to the virus and began to quarantine that night. The congresswoman accused her GOP colleagues of “creating a superspreader event on top of a domestic terrorist attack.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/third-lawmaker-in-lockdown-tests-positive-for-covid-19/2021/01/12/2723bb9e-54f6-11eb-acc5-92d2819a1ccb_story.html
