Women & Guns, Politics and the Culture of Firearms in America

Regardless of what side of the aisle you're on when it comes to guns, gun control or politics, Women & Guns, written by Deborah Homsher, is a must read!  She spent years gathering facts, opinions and interviews from all over the spectrum regarding guns and women.  From the anti gun advocates, to the NRA spokeswoman, Tanya Metaksa, this book shares what women think and why they think the way they do on a particular issue.  The reason we felt the need to pass this along, as a right to carry advocate, is because you really need to know who is out there fighting for gun control and why they feel that way.  Here's an interesting fact to pass along from the book:  in 2001, 43% of households with children have a gun somewhere in home.  This is why it's so important for women to get involved on a national, regional and local level.  Women, in general, are the ones caring for the children in the home and if we just ignore the fact that this weapon is in our house and do not have the knowledge of its use or safety, how can we educate our children?

Once you get through the statistics, this book covers all aspects of where women and guns are found.  From the cities on edge, the fields near home, to the competitiveness of the sport, to the homegrown rebellion;  this is a great resource to learn more about where guns can be found and why it's a growing trend.  We hope you enjoy the book!  Remember, knowledge is power!
