NRA Women’s Programs

I know Caleb put a post up the other day encouraging everyone to donate to my campaign for the NRA Women’s Programs, but I wanted to give Gun Nuts readers a little more in-depth look at why I decided to start this movement.

It all started in September, when I had the chance to fly out to the Whittington Center for the NRA Women’s Wilderness Escape; what I experienced there was life-changing.

The women that attended this event were not the ones you see in photos on Facebook or writing articles for blogs. They were real, and from all different walks of life, with all different levels of experience. Each had her own, unique reason for attending the event – my roommate was even a vegetarian corporate lawyer who had recently moved from New York City (seriously, I can’t make this stuff up). She absolutely embodied what these programs are about. At the beginning of the week she was afraid of guns, skeptical of gun owners, and, well, it was amazing she was even there. By the end of the week, she was trying to decide whether to shoot precision rifle or 3-Gun and was killing the Cafe’s wi-fi with me watching YouTube videos of Jerry Miculek.

That’s the effect these programs can have. That’s the difference you can make by donating just a little bit to my campaign. This isn’t about me shooting Bianchi Cup in a mini kilt, this is about all the women who want to shoot Bianchi Cup in a mini kilt and don’t know it yet.

Donate to the NRA Women’s Programs.

  1. With the way the current administration is taking this country and things like Conn. threatening to break down doors to take away guns, I have to wonder, given the number of state and local law enforcement officers; not only what would they do if ordered to “take away people’s guns,” how many of them, (assuming the majority are males), how many have wives that have CCW permits? Would they be willing to take their wife’s gun away and turn it in as well?
    What is going on in this country is going to force a lot of us to make some difficult decisions!
