Women & Weaponry Story on CNN

Nice news story on Women & Weaponry by CNN. Discusses current trend on increasing number of Women getting gun safety & self defense training as well as getting licenses to carry a concealed handgun for defense of themselves & their family. Excellent news and a very well done article.

Nice article. My wife joined an organization called Women of Caliber and learned to shoot. She's from England where you can't own guns. In 2 days of training she was getting better groupings than I was and I've been shooting for years. She's also learning all of these self defense moves through them.

I'm all for women learning to shoot and getting their CCW. Maybe it'll decrease the number of these school and mall shooting cowards.

That is excellent news, thanks for the link. It is very true that more legal guns translates to less crime every place that concealed carry laws have gone into effect. There is an old saying that goes along with it: "An armed society is a polite society" - when the bad guys know some of their intended victims may be armed, many bad guys decide to choose a safer profession. :) If you have not yet read it, check out John Lott's book "More Guns, Less Crime" where he discusses the results of some studies he did on the topic. Very good book.
