Women and guns is hardly a new phenomenon.
That’s despite fear-mongering by the antis. They would have us believe that women are more likely to be killed with a gun in the home than ever use it in self-defense -- but they never seem to separate out criminal households from normal homes when they make those claims. My personal favorite is the assertion that if a woman has a gun her attacker will take it away from her. One wonders how many who make that claim would like to show us how it’s done, especially with some of the women I know. I chronicled the boasts of one such self-impressed he-man some years back, but it never elicited a response.
There are plenty of directions I could go with this, from female gun owners I know and admire, to survivors and trainers and champions, but today I want to focus on one small part of all that, a group I came into contact with through social media that I’ve since gone on to establish friendly and supportive communications with: Women Against Gun Control, or as they refer to themselves, “Ladies of High Caliber.”
Similar examples of leadership, perseverance and refusal to knuckle under to "progressive" standards on approved viewpoints for women can be found in other groups, such as the aforementioned Second Amendment Sisters and The Well Armed Woman. So it’s understandable why “progressive” media favors subsidized weaklings, spooked by propaganda-fed fears, over self-confident women who refuse to be victims. After all, the latter have mastered tools that give most members of the press, especially the anti-gun male contingent, a case of the vapors.
