A report from KTVI in St. Louis is crediting the fairer sex with being instrumental in pushing firearm sales to record levels over the past 18 months.
The radio station quoted Steve King, owner of Metro Shooting Supply, who says he has had more women customers than ever before, and that the numbers keep growing. “If I could open a new store, it would cater to women and self-defense … it has been growing the past five years,” he said.
King says they offer shooting lessons every day. Not only are these classes full, but women make up 80 percent of the class.
Howard Stern Backs Trump On RTC Reciprocity
Radio talk icon Howard Stern is backing President-elect Donald Trump’s proposal for interstate Right-to-Carry reciprocity.
This law has been NRA’s number-one legislative agenda item for several years. And with the election of Donald Trump as president, and the retention of pro-gun majorities in both houses of the U.S. Congress, the prospects for such a law have never looked better.
Stern and his longtime co-host, Robin Quivers, echoed those sentiments in their own comments. “When you think about it,” Stern said, “somebody is a legal and responsible gun owner—let’s say in Massachusetts—why, when he crosses the border, is he suddenly an outlaw?” As Quivers elaborated on how current law requires state-by-state licensing for concealed carry and how Trump’s proposal would protect licensees traveling interstate, Stern interjected, “Makes total sense,” and, “I support that.”
Armed Texas Man Stops Home Intruder
A Corpus Christi homeowner used his firearm to stop a home intruder early Saturday morning.
According to local media reports, the homeowner heard a knock on the front door of his house at about 3:30 a.m. The homeowner didn’t recognize the man, so he didn’t let him in.
Not long after that, he heard the suspect come through the back door. After confronting him, the homeowner shot the intruder one time, putting an end to the invasion. The intruder was taken to a nearby medical facility for treatment. Charges are pending.
