More women are buying and using guns.
There’s been quite a bit of talk about how more people are buying guns over the last few years. Seems like every year sales are up over the previous year now. And that’s not just the men.  A Gallup poll from late last year showed that 23% of women own a gun. And it’s not just buying guns. The National Shooting Goods Association indicated that target shooting among females is up 46.5% from 2001 to 2010.
