Less than a third of the women surveyed said that personal protection was the only reason they own a gun (vs less than 10% of men).

Statistically speaking, ANYONE, who owns a gun for self protection is more likely to have to use it against a male, so I don't know why women specifically need to be called out.

I wouldn't be surprised if the number of women owners overtakes and surpasses the number of men owners within the next 30 years.

When it comes about that there are many, many more female gun owners than there are male gun owners, how will men feel about that? Will the outnumbered men become concerned that the superior number of women gun owners will represent a threat to all the men that women are arming themselves against? Will the men become paranoid that the superior numbers of women gun owners will eventually disarm all men and start a new world order for society? Will men then want to take all women's guns away and prevent them from owning them?

Many of the women and girls around here hunt.

Let the anti-gun crowd let that sink in!!


1 in 5!!!!!!!!


And that number is growing thanks to thewellarmedwoman.com and other woman friendly gun groups


This will drive the libs crazy!!!!
Started shooting age 6.....NRA member around guns all my life and I dearly wish that number was true but it sounds like hogwash to me. I have never met a woman packing in my life. Can't recall a single woman attacked and murdered who shot back.........of course it wouldn't make the news even if it did happen.

Yes, I believe that. Speaking as a Canadian woman who has owned firearms for over 65 years, I can understand and sympathize with the reasons for why the other two thirds of American women gun owners surveyed would have the prudence and presence of mind to say otherwise. Playing it smart. Good for them! I wouldn't be surprised if the numbers are actually higher than what the survey showed.

I was wondering the same thing when I saw this thread get posted, calling out women gun owners. The OP seemed to be surprised that 1 in 5 women in America are now gun owners, surprised so much that he thought it was important enough news that he felt the need to post about it. He also seemed to indicate that he was pleased and encouraging about it, but I can't help wondering if he and a lot of other men are also just a little bit worried about it too.

Anyway, I say kudos to all the many more American ladies that are catching on and arming themselves and I wish them the greatest success in their future endeavours.

Advocating for gun laws doesn't equate to being anti-gun... Does the presence of traffic laws equate to being anti-car?

Damn right. I've been a well-armed woman for the past several decades. When I first started shooting, I was the only female at the shooting range. Have to admit, it was a bit intimidating, back then. But, I've watched it change over the years and these days the range is packed with women.

Take responsibility for your own safety.

All of the new gun laws and proposed gun laws only affect the law-abiding. Many of the politicians proposing them openly admit they would like to outlaw guns. That makes them anti-gun.

I own guns. Several.
I don't walk around with them.
But they are there.

As women, we should be advocating for #NopeNotMe as opposed to #MeToo.
Women, take responsibility for your own safety and refuse to be a victim.
