Mother And Daughter Teach Gun Safety To Women

posted on August 1, 2015

Donna Broome and Candace Ivy of Columbia, S.C., have founded an initiative called Guns ‘N Lipstik to teach women self-defense skills. The mother and daughter share a traumatic history with domestic abuse, and their primary intention is to empower women to avoid such situations when possible—and to extricate themselves when needed. They offer a gun safety course for women, known as Purses and Pistols, which aims to give beginners confidence in handling a firearm.

The safety course uses NRA training materials and in the future may enlist the help of local law enforcement; it culminates in a trip to the gun range, after which participants are encouraged to continue their training. This summer, they will also debut a class for teens, meant to teach warning signs that can stop abuse before it starts.
