Women & Firearms news report
Last month, Columbus, OH WBNS (ch. 10) reporter Brittany Westbrook contacted Robin Salvo from Blackwing Shooting Center and myself about doing a "women and firearms" report.
I gathered together 6 ladies who were former CCW students of mine. I hand selected these ladies for specific reasons, because they each had a tale to tell or were unique. I wanted this to be as interesting as possible rather than boring. My ladies include:
-a kidnapping victim who lived through an 18 hr ordeal
-a 22 yr old lady who is currently being stalked by a 55 yr old WOMAN
-a single parent
-an ex-military lady who is married to a policeman
-the daughter of a famous cable TV hunter personality
-a mugging victim who was accosted by a homeless man in Columbus
Our segment was filmed about a month ago. Blackwings was filmed a couple weeks ago. BWSC's revolved around shotguns and Women on Target programs. Ours revolved around handguns and concealed carry. I had Brittany shooting a .22. Her first experience ever with handguns. Prior to the report, when asked her stance on guns, she told me "I am not pro gun, but I'm definitely not anti gun. I am neutral". She had a ton of fun with us.
Brittany did individual interviews with each of the ladies.
Once aired this week, I was very pleased with the outcome of the report. This was a very non-biased report, especially for TV10. Quite the refreshing breath of fresh air from the media.

That was a good report. Columbus is so anti-gun, or it seems like it to those of us out here in the sticks. Good job.

Exellent job and a great article.
I wouldnt mind using that clip in the next womans class that I have. I think it would be a good introduction.

Most excellent Linda! What a fantastic job and really a fair piece they did.

Here in Utah we have a forum UtahConcealedCarry.Com • Index page, that has a Ladies Only thread. They are going to have a woman's only shoot and my wife is going, but husbands are not aloud. I think it is a good idea to get more women involved.

Very nice job Linda. Kudos to you and your young ladies!

Great Linda! Well done.
From someone who works in TV I can tell you, that is about as unbiased as it gets. Not a bad job by WBNS at all.
