    Armed women are empowered women!

    There’s a growing push by anti-gun zealots to try to connect domestic abuse and battered women to gun owners. This is just the latest in a long line of attempts to stigmatize firearms ownership and our way of life. What you won’t hear are those gun control nuts admitting that the best way to truly empower women is to encourage responsible gun ownership. There’s no denying it, firearms provide women an unparalleled ability to defend themselves from attackers of all sizes. In a life or death situation nothing else levels the playing field like a gun.

    So while anti-gunners will tell women to play dead, use their keys to scratch, or attempt to use wasp spray on their attackers, we’ll keep preaching our message: a truly empowered woman is a woman who has the tools, and the skills to defend herself from an attacker, no matter what the size.
