A Startling Rise

CBS News New York is reporting on the increasing number of women owning guns and shooting:

In fact, according to a recent Gallup poll 23 percent of woman reported they are gun owners, up from 13 percent in 2005.

That’s quite a jump for just 8 years. I have to wonder how many of them were already gun owners, but didn’t want to admit it, and are now it’s becoming more socially acceptable.

Maria Alampi at the Cherry Ridge Range in New Jersey teaches women how to shoot. While it used to be known as a man’s sport, it may not be such the case much longer.

“A lot of women, a lot of college-age women, take the course,” Alampi said.

Anthony Colandro runs a firearm training school in New Jersey, where right now he said women are a driving force for business.

If this is the case in New Jersey of all places, our opponents are in more trouble than they realize. Especially given that women are more likely to try to do something about public policies that they don’t like, Emily Miller being a key example.

  1. But the gun grabbers keep trying to convince us that only gun owners that are buying more guns, and there is no such thing as a new gun owner. While common sense would suggest with the numbers of firearms flying out of display cases across the country, a good many of them are going home with first time gun owners.

  2. Soon they will even let them into Augusta National Gold Course! Doh?!
    This might help us down the road with a reduction in Penis jokes.

    “Oh my God, she is only carrying because it makes her feel like she has huge labia minora.” (Doesn’t exactly work, does it?)
