    More Women Carrying Guns - WGNO


    NEW ORLEANS - Virginia Briand is a grandmother of six, a gourmet cook and an avid gardener. She's also pretty good at target practice.

    Virginia is among a growing number of women, women over age 50, who are taking their safety seriously. "The bad guys don't just hang out in bad areas. They're coming to your neighborhood so people are starting to accept a lot of personal responsibility." Fire Arms Instructor Michael Jurina Is teaching this concealed carry class at the Shooter's Club in Harahan. "We've gotten a lot older group of people who've become a little worrisome, especially after Katrina and other recent events around the country that have made people say, 'Yikes. I guess the police aren't always there,'" he says.

    "I felt unsafe after the hurricanes and after the millennium," says Virginia. Now, she feels very comfortable handling a gun. "I think i can sense danger. I know my rights. I know the dangers of what I can and can't do and so now I know I can safely fire a gun."

    And she recommends women of all ages think about becoming gun owners. "We have been sort of disallowed to have the ability to protect ourselves with firearms."
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Lots of good comments in that article.

    If they don't understand after Katrina, they'll never understand.

    I can see why people want to learn self-defense especially with firearms, when the imaginary headline screams......

    Crime. Coming Soon to a Neighborhood Near You!

    As it has been said many times, anytime, place and anywhere. Good report though. I would have expected the Lib news to call her a crazed gun-totin' granny who needs therapy.

    Good story, and so true, my MP Company had to deploy to Louisiana for Katrina, we actually went hot with our weapons and had to set up security down there. It was bad down there. Goes to show you criminals dont give a flip about people, even when they are in a bad situation
