Anything, and I mean ANYTHING we can do to encourage more women to be involved with the shooting sports and carry a firearm whenever they can is a worthwhile effort. We also need women to step up and publicly shame companies and corporations that refuse to allow law abiding citizens the right to have the means to defend themselves on their (the companies) properties. One of the biggest offenders of this is Buffalo Wild Wings. They need to be shamed at every chance possible.
