Gun Buyback/Cell Phone Donations
Donating old cell phones to women's shelter's has been a noble cause for many years. I think that donating guns from the gun buyback programs would be very effective also.
As a social worker who has worked with this issue in the past. I can say the current suggestions and methods used to provide safety to abused women do lack the empowerment of self-defense. I followed the old methods over the years but today teaching women to be empowered by learning about firearms and effective* self-defense methods will be much more effective.
