Makes it hard to plan a trip
Interesting that you used my city's news as the link, lol.

And I hear ya. I can't carry when I drive to upstate NY to see relatives. KY is fine but once you hit Ohio it's against the law all the rest of the way to NY. Stupid liberal laws. I travel late at night when we go, would be nice if I could carry.

Ohio recognizes every state's legally issued CCWs, even states that don't accept Ohio

Women are more likely to be the straw purchaser for males who, for many reasons, cannot lawfully acquire a gun.

By shear numbers, yes. Almost as if white people made up a much larger percent of the population than any other ethnic group. Black males are over represented as gun crime offenders based on their prevalence in the population, while white males are slightly under represented*.






*Sometimes Hispanics are lumped in as "white" in ethnicity statistics. I am not certain if the statistics for white gun crime offenders include gun crimes committed by Hispanics.

And that is already against Federal and State law, and they do significant JAIL TIME when caught. What's your point? We already have multiple laws against that, yet you want more?

So you'd prefer women that are legally able to have firearms be defenseless as they are usually smaller and weaker?

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!!!!
Live in the south and many of the women have guns that their husbands bought for them. They go to the shooting range once or maybe twice a year or even less than that.

But it is important for them to say they have a gun.

It makes them feel better.

I don't think any of them put the gun in their purse or car...they just have one at home.

Similar for me. 7mm-08 rifle, 20 ga side by side, 9mm Beretta. But add a couple more hanguns in .45 and .357 mag, and a self-built .556. Sadly, I don't find the time to shoot much. New full time job and still building a house that I started 15 years ago, lol.

No one is this stupid. Maybe I am wrong.

Most of the gun owners I know are women. I can't imagine why you'd think that gun ownership impacts our views on gun control.

You are so delightfully dismissive. You ought to speak for yourself, and maybe the women you know, not the South. You look ridiculous speaking so condescendingly of an enormous demographic.
