Yep.

I'm from the South.

Most of my women friends with guns are licensed to carry concealed, which takes an 8 hour class and comes with general firearm training.

I was picking up some projectiles today and two women were helped by two women employees buying handguns. Made me smile.

I know women here who can take down a 12-point buck and field dress it as easily as baking a pie.

Itís a big mistake to speak condescendingly of the skills of Southern women. They have grit and theyíre capable as hell.

THREE?? Do you fear being invaded by the Russian Army??
where do you live???
I'm all for CCW to protect ones self but if you live where a 13 yr old needs THREE? maybe check the Real Estate section of safer areas!!

I don't feel unsafe one iota and never have no matter whose butt is in the Oval Office. Politicians don't affect my life in that manner. Sorry they affect you so.

Owning three guns doesn’t mean she’s slinging all three of them in a holster at once. Given her age that’s extremely unlikely, in fact.

Depending on her interests, she might have a rifle for hunting, a shotgun for skeet/target shooting, and a pistol or handgun for the range. Different guns have different purposes.

Good for you! Now, while I doubt this will ever be done by your daughter, sometimes a kid being well-versed in guns could end up shooting up a school, even if they drilled about gun safety!

I understand your uninformed opinion because I know nothing about golf and often wonder why a person needs so many different kinds of clubs.
