    1. Pistol-packin’ PoliticalChic reporting! Yippee oh ki aaa! Ya' see, it’s not just about equal pay and equal rights: if you’re petite and have a taste for stilettos, you’re not going to have much luck fighting off a 6’2″ 200 lb attacker, should that situation arise. How to even the odds? John Lott makes a rock hard case as to why all women should have a gun. Generally, I found those of my sex a fear of guns, or perhaps having the potential to lethally harm someone seems incongruous to a woman’s “tender nature”.

    2. “Guns also appear to be the great equalizer among the sexes. Murder rates decline when either more women or more men carry concealed handguns, but the effect is especially pronounced for women. One additional woman carrying a concealed handgun reduces the murder rate for women by about 3-4 times more than one additional man carrying a concealed handgun reduces the murder rate for men. This occurs because allowing a woman to defend herself with a concealed handgun produces a much larger change in her ability to defend herself than a change created by providing a man with a handgun.”~ "More Guns, Less Crime," by John Lott

    3. Ah, but the times, they are a-changin’. With Sarah Palin rising as a political superstar, and the popularity of reality TV shows like “Son’s of Guns” and “Top Shot,” guns seem to have found a mainstream niche, and a growing one! Recently, there was even an article in the Village Voice entitled, “Guns For Girls Who Need Girlier Guns: A Review.” Had all these pink ‘girly guns’…I swear! Actually, I was a little bummed, because unless you’re a cop or a celebrity, no one’s getting a license to carry a concealed weapon in the Big Apple. Remember the jaw-dropping hypocrisy of gun-control advocate Rosie O’Donnell who applied for a concealed gun permit so her bodyguard could carry a gun while accompanying her children to public school?? Rosie's armed bodyguard

    4. Websites like Girl’s Guide to Guns has lots of information on guns, particularly for women. One of their articles suggested a “Range Night Out with the Girls” as a get together, and so I thought this might be a good way to introduce the idea to my sis, who’s way to the other end of the political spectrum from me….LivingSocial offered us an amazing deal with West Side Rifle & Pistol Range, so we signed up for a shooting lesson with a classroom safety course, one-on-one supervision, a shooting session with ammo, protective gear, and targets! They had to conduct a background check on each of us before we could make our appointments! I did too, pass!!

    5. The instructor looked like he had stepped out of an episode of Miami Ink, but he knew what he was doing and had the utmost patience with us. By the third magazine, I had gotten into a rhythm loading the bullets. I was getting more and more lead on my index finger and was observing same with child-like curiosity. Our weapons were Ruger .22 caliber rifles, and it wasn’t about knowing how to shoot, but shooting for accuracy. See the target? As Arnold said, ‘I’ll be baaaack.”

    6. Let’s not forget, the 19th Amendment which gave women the right to vote wasn’t ratified till 1920, but the 2nd Amendment which was adopted in 1791 was meant for BOTH men and women. We should in no way let there be any infraction of the 2nd Amendment. Citizens should be invested in the same way that the founders meant it to be: With no restrictions.

    Do you have a handgun?

    BTW, my wife is scared of guns. Nothing wrong with that. They should be feared. She carries a Taser instead.

    I'm thinking of applying for a pistol permit, but here in the Big Apple-People's Republic, I could only get one for my premises.

    That's a bummer. Too bad you're not a criminal because they can carry. Can you carry a taser?
