Liberal website, Jezebel, recently reported on “Mothers Packing Heat” an investigative report on women, mom’s, guns, and their children. It’s chock full of statistics from a variety of sources and interesting quotes from women who were interviewed. Here’s a short excerpt:

It’s a surprising twist in the story about guns in America. With young children regularly the focus of tragic gun-related accidents and public health experts warning that kids are less safe when there is a firearm in the home, moms seem like the last demographic group that would be interested in packing heat. But despite the risks, more moms feel gun ownership and concealed carry are reasonable steps to take to ensure their family’s safety.

“With women especially, there’s this desire to take protection into their own hands, to protect themselves and their families. It builds on the tradition of feminism—the idea that they can protect themselves,” said Catherine Mortensen, spokeswoman for the National Rifle Association (NRA).

They’re right about wanting to protect themselves and their families. Knowledge is power. When you know how to handle a weapon, it eliminates the fear aspect and replaces it with a healthy respect. I just don’t see any downside.
