Due to recent tragedies, people have been indulging in knee-jerk gun control measures. While I empathize with the victims and their families, the happenings around the country make me fear for my safety as well. I fear that someone will come shoot up a store or building I am in, but I also fear that I won’t have any way of protecting myself as a woman.
Gun rights are women’s rights.
A gun is called “the great equalizer” for a reason. It allows a small female to be on the same level of force as a big male. A gun is a very serious tool and, sometimes, a very serious weapon.
