Women’s Publication Gets It Right On Guns

posted on April 12, 2016

After enduring all the anti-gun screeds from Cosmopolitan magazine lately, it’s refreshing to see a women’s publication being honest about firearm ownership. In an article on Momzette titled “Why More Of Us Are Buying Guns,” author Deirdre Reilly explains how today’s female gun owners—now numbering roughly 20 million—are carrying firearms, heading into the fields and going to the range in record numbers. 

To find out what’s driving these increases, Reilly interviewed first-time gun owners, scholars and retailers, all of whom explained the importance of women taking charge of their personal safety. In fact, their stories convinced Reilly to purchase her own firearm. 

“We often say we would do anything for those we love—so I feel with this decision, I am,” she wrote. “As threats in the world grow more serious, I too, am growing more serious—about my own safety and about the safety of people in my home that I hold dear.”
