    ..........Between 2005 and 2013, the percentage of women in America owning a firearm jumped from 13% to 23%, and women continue to demand more personal protection. In a relatively balanced report, NBC highlights a recent case in which a woman shot an intruder to protect herself and her six-year-old son:

    As it should be. A woman should not have to rely on anyone else to protect her. If she is armed and trianed she can protect herself as well as anyone. Sam made em equal.

    I see more women at gun shows now than I ever have, which is a good thing.

    I'm in that group. I got my first gun last year. I wish it hadn't taken me so long.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    I blame them for the increased prices/shortages for guns and ammo. Lol. Not really. Firearms are the great equalizer I am glad to see women signing on.

    My Wife's friend at 60 years old bought her first gun a few weeks ago. She bought a 20 ga pump shotgun. On her way home from her first range trip with it she stopped at the sporting goods store and bought a 22 rifle! She had a girlfriend with her, It wont be long till she wants one too. Even my wife is changing. She has had guns since before we met 30 years ago. She did not enjoy shooting and would only go once every couple of years. But with her friends asking and our daughter in laws all shoot shes going more often. And enjoying her self.
    Shooting is a sport where men and women can compete well. It doesn't take a lot of strength, you don't have to run fast, or even take a hit [ as in foot ball ]. Small bore shooting even uses light guns with no recoil. So their are lots of opportunity's for family's to shoot together. Ive always involved my kids but the wife is just now becoming interested after seeing other women take an interest. DR

    That jump in female firearm ownership is truly remarkable.

    I believe the more women that get exposed to firearms in a positive way the better. My wife and her 4 sisters were brought up with them and were taught to respect not fear them. They all received a hand gun from their father as a wedding present.

    If you are correct, it sure doesn't say much for the male population does it? SAD. :(

    That's a good argument for marital fidelity if I ever heard one.

    I firmly support pistol packing mamas. It's good to have someone who has your back when you need it.
