Upsurge In Minority Women Buying Guns

posted on May 11, 2017

In 2016, John R. Lott of the Crime Prevention Research Center issued a study on concealed-carry permit holders that indicated that concealed carry was rapidly rising among black females. This week, Fox News is also reporting that more black women are turning to guns for self-defense.

Conservative African-American journalist Stacy Washington isn’t surprised. "I believe the reason we’re seeing more women of color joining this movement to use firearms is because they’re realizing this is not a political issue," Washington told Fox News. "It really never has been. It's about personal safety and protection."

With more and more minority ladies taking protection into their own hands, they’ll find the National Rifle Association “a natural home for women firearms owners,” said NRA spokeswoman Catherine Mortensen. "Increasingly, women today don’t want to rely on a spouse or neighbor for protection. They want to be able to protect themselves and their families."
