“We are honored to have Ms. Loesch on the cover of our magazine,” said Editor Eric Poole. “She’s a staunch supporter of our Second Amendment rights. Our readers will appreciate her in-depth knowledge on guns in general and how it is more than just a job or hobby for her.”
“I'm honored and humbled that Guns and Ammo asked me to be on their next cover…They were amazing fun with which to work. Thanks to Guns and Ammo for the honor and much respect to those who serve, like Officer Bray,” commented Loesch on her blog at DanaLoeschRadio.Com.
The last woman on the cover of Guns & Ammo was in November 1961 when Officer Jeanne E. Bray was given the honor. Bray was an accomplished shooter who was the first female detective on a burglary squad, which has evolved into today’s modern SWAT. She died while serving on the police force in Cleveland, Ohio.
“Ms. Bray was a true patriot and busted through whatever glass ceiling was in place for female officers in the late 50s and 60s,” continued Poole. “According to records we found, she shot better than many of the men on the police force, which earned her five championship titles in Police Pistol Combat competitions between 1962 and 1967.”
Guns & Ammo remains the world’s most-widely read firearms magazine. G&A is part of Outdoor Sportsman Group (OSG), the nation’s largest media company exclusively serving the information and entertainment needs of more than 80 million outdoor enthusiasts.
Dana Loesch hosts her award-winning, nationally syndicated daily radio show, The Dana Show: The Conservative Alternative from Dallas, Texas where she also hosts “Dana” on The Blaze television network. Dana appears regularly on Fox News, ABC, CNN, among others, and has co-hosted on “The View.” She describes herself as a “conservatarian.” Her book, “Hands off My Gun” is now available in bookstores and on Amazon. In addition to explaining why the Founding Fathers insisted on including the right to bear arms in the Bill of Rights, Loesch argues in the book that “gun control” regulations throughout history have been used to keep minority populations under control. She also contends that current arguments in favor of gun control are primarily based on emotions and fear. Learn more at http://danaloeschradio.com
