    My Comments: Just a big shout out (and "you go!") to the fastest growing demographic in firearms ownership!

    .....A survey conducted by the National Shooting Sports Foundation found that 73 percent of gun dealers reported an increase in female customers in 2011, as well as the previous two years. In 2005, just 13 percent of gun owners were women. Today, that number is 23 percent--a 77 percent increase in 7 years.

    While folks in the media are blaming the spike on the guns-and-glam advertising (ahem Piers Morgan), women--including myself--have a different reason: Itís self-defense, stupid.

    The math isnít surprising and the logic is simple: Women want to protect themselves and their family, and guns are the great equalizer between sexes in crimes against women. The facts are there to prove it.

    They finally figured out Rat tail combs are not a defensive tool!

    The last two ladies I had the pleasure of training had friends who had to wait on 911 to respond! They were not going to wait on someone to come help while they're being raped or beaten!

    I can't wait until my wife is ready to CC. She has made great progress over the last year and now goes to the range with me, so it is only a matter of time.

    Eowyn: The women of this country learned long ago, those without swords can still die upon them.

    I enjoyed this quote in Lord of the Rings when I read it, and I think it is applicable to the discussion.

    I'm pretty sure my dog is smarter than that tool. Not that it's a very high bar that he set.

    My wife is getting her ccw after reading the recommended liberal female response to attack of either throwing up on or peeing on her attacker The outburst as I remember it was " What the "insert crude language here" do they think I am?? A baby buzzard or a cow that can pee enough to drown the guy!!!!!""" It wasnt pretty.

    There are so many comments and responses that would just have the Forum Moderaters throwing me out............................. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGG


    I agree, but cannot speak my mind because (and I respect this) this is a family friendly Forum. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGggggg


    If you vote, and most of you do, please check out which political party the IDIOTS who are trying to take your 2A rights to self defense/protection are from. (Hey Mods, that was stated very neutrally = respect for why we are here).

    You know maybe it is good these politicians are having diarrhea of the mouth. It is showing the voters what they really think and might lead to some new folks in office.

    As someone who grew up in the 70's and 80's (as a young adult) I've seen the emergence of women asserting themselves in the business and political world. So it just seems logical and right to me that women have begun to take on the responsibility that all of us have to defend ourselves and our loved ones. No longer are women willing to entrust their security to the gov't, their husbands, or their boyfriends; nor should they. I totally applaud this movement, it's about time. I say, "Annie Get Your Gun!"
