I think more women should know how to use a gun. I want my wife to learn to shoot. She has never shot a pistol but she is willing to take a class and we both want to get our consealed hand gun permite. My step daughter just got out of the Army and made top score in shooting while se was in basic taining. The best way to protect the people of this nation is for the people to know how to protect themselves, bot men and women, no matter what age.

I agree--in a country as violent as the USA, everyone over the age of 14 should be required to learn how to shoot. Every adult should also be required to carry a firearm. at all times. If every citizen was armed, violent crime would disappear. It would probably not take more than one year from the time of arming the citizenry to complete safety. Worth a tryt?
