"If I walk in the woods, I feel much more comfortable carrying a gun. What if you meet a bear in the woods that's going to attack you? You shoot it."
Maybe some "safety" training upfront would be really really really wise.
Wow. I wouldn't want to be there, I would probably be laying on the floor or getting cover. NO finger/trigger control, dry firing without clearing / checking the gun, no muzzle control .... OMG Dorothy.
And purse carry = the worse method to carry a gun known (IMHO).

Chief Justice John Roberts : "I don't see how you can read Heller and not take away from it the notion that the Second Amendment...was extremely important to the framers in their view of what liberty meant."
Fortune favors the bold.
Freedom doesn't mean safe, it means free.
The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)
I'm in there with "Dadsnugun's" concept with a considerably more sinister assessment of the actual purpose of this so-called "news report", and I base the merit of such subliminal craftwork (by a generally ultra-liberal news media) from the effect it has created in successfully seeding a noticeable degree of misaligned thoughts even in the ranks of such a closely-knit group of licensed CC firearms proponents. Ladies and gentlemen, wake up to the realization that this news report had nothing to do with gender, race, sexual preference, firearms safety or to promote concealed carry for self defense.
You must remember this "report" was put together for airing to the general public to view as an "informative news item"; and whether or not the whole thing was orchestrated or just a clever manipulation of purposely having the camera search for all the worst possible scenarios, the end result was to purvey the concept to all viewers that everyone interested in carrying a concealed firearm is a bumbling incompetent who would scare the hell out of anyone around them as they obviously did all the wrong things with every aspect of responsible firearms safety.
If anything was "sexist", it was the news report itself that tried to imply that a major component of new CC licensees are a bunch of "dumb broads" who aren't sure which end of the pistol to hold. I'm a little disappointed that they didn't have a couple of the women simultaniously talking on their cell phones and a few more wet-nursing a baby cradled in one arm while all of them were pointing their pistols in all directions as they listened to "Bubba" the instructor (with a beer-belly hanging out from under his dirty t-shirt) showing them how to open a can of beer with an empty magazine while twirling his pistol overhead on one finger - ahhhhh, but all of that would have made their biased goal too obvious wouldn't it?
All of us with even a spark of intelligence know there's no gender or sexual preference factor involved whatsoever when it comes to a trained, practiced, responsible adult safely, efficiently, and effectively managing a firearm. We should also realize that the liberal news media seldom mentions anything about the daily dozens of respectable CC people who've saved their lives (or thwarted an attempt thereupon) by the responsible and justified use of their weapon; but it instantly makes national news when some psychotic or clinical moron does something despicable or totally irresponsible with a firearm.
Bottom line is to always expect the news media to focus in on every possible negative aspect they can find, manipulate, or purposely orchestrate to achieve their liberal goal of slowly turning the general public's view and opinion against firearms ownership and concealed carry laws while using every means within their grasp to make those who own and carry firearms always look like paranoid, irresponsible, careless, uneducated, bottom-feeding, radical anarchists who shouldn't be trusted with anything more dangerous than an empty water-pistol.
