I agree, I can't just broadbrush it and say it's 100 % bad all the time.To say carrying in a purse is bad based on one incident doesn't make sense. Plenty of women have successfully defended their lives with purse carried guns.
You're right. But the many various incidents over the years that I've read about in the news convince me that it's far too simple for a purse to be taken or a for person to be incapable of getting to the purse. And in that situation a person is now effectively disarmed. That scenario is far less likely to occur when the gun is on the person.To say carrying in a purse is bad based on one incident doesn't make sense.

My wife and daughter probably use their purses with the built in gun compartment most of the time they carry (wife - 90%, daughter - 60%). Neither has found a real comfortable/practical way to CC and I want them to carry. For those who haven't looked into these purses, they have straps that are reinforced with metal to prevent the common - YANK, snap the strap, and RUN" purse grab. It is not full proof but SA is the key to being able to react in a timely manner no matter how you choose to you carry. We work on what we can control and not what we can't.There are gun purses, my wife has one and when going to the car you can not tell she has her hand on the gun in the hidden outside pocket.
