There is a new website that targets what I hope is a large and growing audience: women who own guns. These are women who inwardly cheered when Sandra Bullock warned hooligans in The Blind Side that she was packing. The hooligans wisely left her alone. The site is here: http://girlsjustwannahaveguns.com
In a time of increasing violence, a handgun is a great equalizer. A man may be stronger than a woman. He is not stronger than a woman with a snub-nose .357.
Too many women are more afraid of guns than they are of rapists. Nothing much can be done for women who have that frame of mind. They want the State to protect them. They want an agent of the State to be there in a crisis. The gun control lobby wants this kind of woman to vote.
For women who are convinced that safety, like charity, begins at home, the new site will reinforce their feeling as well as provide news on gun-related issues of interest.
