I'm a libertarian, but I'd support arming women with guns paid for with taxpayer dollars.

If the 6th Amendment requires govt to provide an attorney, then it's certainly reasonable to conclude the People could reasonably expect from the 2nd Amendment not only a govt-provided military rifle (like the Swiss get), but also a supply of ammo and range for practice and govt-provided training. (By training, I mean the kind you get in the military, not the kind chuck schumer would provide.)

As the number of proposed gun-control measures increase rapidly across the country, the amount of women purchasing guns is increasing even faster.

A survey conducted by the National Shooting Sports Foundation found that 73 percent of gun dealers reported an increase in female customers in 2011, as well as the previous two years. In 2005, just 13 percent of gun owners were women. Today, that number is 23 percent--a 77 percent increase in 7 years.

While folks in the media are blaming the spike on the guns-and-glam advertising (ahem Piers Morgan), women--including myself--have a different reason: It’s self-defense, stupid.

The math...
