“According to statistics from the NRA, around 23% of women in the U.S. own guns, when just 13% did in 2005,” writes Susanne Edward in her piece in Americas1stFreedom, “The RISE of the Woman Gun Owner.”
“The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF),” she continues, “has documented a 77% rise in female gun ownership since 2005.”
As Democrats target the suburban female demographic in 2020, they might want to check that, “Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47” strategy at the door.
It turns out women care about their safety, writes Edward:
A Pew Research Center survey of 1,269 gun owners in 2017 also recorded that about a quarter of the women who own guns say protection is the only reason they own a firearm, and about 70% noted that they deem the right to own guns to be an essential component of their personal sense of freedom.
Cameron McWhirter reports in the Wall Street Journal:
The number of Americans with concealed-carry permits has risen, reaching almost 18.7 million in 2019, up from 12.8 million in 2015, according to the Crime Prevention Research Center, a gun-rights group. That growth was fueled by states like Oklahoma and Kentucky, which legalized carrying a concealed firearm without a permit last year. Other states have reduced permit fees or simplified the test to get a permit.
An increase in women and others buying their first firearms for personal protection has contributed to the uptick in concealable guns, said Jeffrey Duenk, owner of a firearms training center in Oostburg, Wis., who attended the show. His business, opened three years ago, was designed to be inviting to new gun owners with clean, bright rooms and no dead animals on the wall, he said, and his conceal-carry classes draw a lot of women.
Led by billionaire gun controller, Mayor “Mini” Mike Bloomberg, and Governor Ralph “Blackface” Northam (VA), Democrats are bent on taking away Americans’ right to bear arms.
Women, and many other Americans, know that with Democrats aiming for your Second Amendment rights, it’s time to get your gun and your training now.
