Meet the Women of the USPSA, the United States Practical Shooting Association. These ladies give the lie to the Left’s ludicrous attempts to paint the faces of America’s females in deeply deceptive shades of gun control passivity. All the stats point to the obvious fact that gun ownership among women is growing by leaps and bounds. And by the way, the 2012 USPSA national shooting competition is coming up in May.
Women Can Shoot!
The face of the American gun owner is changing. More women than ever are picking up rifles, shotguns, and handguns. And target shooting is one of the fastest-growing female sports. Female participation in target shooting in the U.S. has nearly doubled in the last decade, growing to nearly five million women since 2001.
Pistol-shooting mommas and rifle-wielding yoga instructors may not be the type of woman who comes to mind when you hear about female shooters, but they’re dominating the sport. They say they shoot not only for self-protection, but because it relieves stress, helps them find peace and concentration and feel feminine. CBS News
