When in danger you can dial 911 and hope for the police to arrive a few minutes later armed with guns.
Why do police carry guns?

saw the title of the thread, and bopped in, didnt read the post, but thought of; Was this by chance published in Soldier of Fortune?
-- Spending several hundred dollars on a serviceable handgun might leave them without enough money to get the full treatment at that next visit to the day spa.
-- Carrying a gun in a small purse would leave less room for more important items, such as lipstick or compact.
-- The baggy clothing required to successfully conceal most holsters would make them appear frumpy.
-- Gunpowder residue might stain the new Karen Scott blouse they just bought at Macy's.
-- The gunpowder smell when the weapon is fired could totally overwhelm the Chanel they're wearing.
-- Most firearm accessories come only in one boring color: black.
-- Target practice earplugs simply aren't sexy

My wife is composing an E-Mail to him as we speak. She is PO'd. She mentioned to me that she carries, because of creepy looking guys like him!
This is indeed the most sexist article regarding women and carrying that I have ever read. Thank goodness anyone with an ounce of common sence would recognize it as such and not take it serioulsy. If I were a women I would be in contact with the authors supervisors demanding an apology (at the very least). If you take female out of the equation and subsitute with another group of people (color, sexual preference, possible mental illness, religious preference, etc.,) I wonder how long the author would be employed....
I for one would like to see more ladies OC'ing in as much as I think it would speak volumes to the fact that OC'ing is for every law abiding citizen (not just men) and that not all ladies carrying a sidearm are BG's (Bad Girls). It would also be a huge help the movement as to disprove some common misconceptions regarding OC'ers.

If this was meant as an April Fool's joke, it's a bit late... and not really funny.
Pampering is nice, but doesn't do as much for me, for as long, as education.a ladies-only seminar teaching them how to become pistol instructors.
To most women, such a seminar probably wouldn't have the same appeal as, say, a holistic facial at the day spa.
(For which, see Nutzak's post.)the pesky preconceived notions that likely turn off many females to the idea of gun ownership

(Just PM'd the link & quotes & contact info to Kathy of Cornered Cat. Surely she'll have an army who can explain the error of his ways.)
ETA: email sent to Mr's Craig & Martin. Wonder how many more they'll get?
Just tried to call Mr. Craig, got the "managing editor" Jim Cuddy (412 320 7830), who says "this is an opinion column, that's his opinion". To which I pointed out that it also has the newpaper's name on it, so they're going to catch the backlash. He says he's already heard from "a couple" other people. Didn't seem too concerned... yet.
