50 Female Gun Owners Set Sights on Washington DC

50 Female Gun Owners Set Sights on Washington DC
Females provide unique stories and perspectives on the attraction of the 2nd Amendment, including competition shooting sports, commerce, self-defense, hunting, and conservation.

AUSTIN, TX – -(Ammoland.com)- Women from around the country are preparing to travel to the U.S. Capitol as part of the DC Project, a nonpartisan initiative that brings 50 women, one from each state, to Washington, DC, to meet with their legislators about issues addressing the Second Amendment.

The women, who will be meeting with Congressional members and staff from June 20-23, 2018, have diverse professional experiences, ethnicity, and political beliefs, but share a common interest centered on the appreciation of America’s gun culture.

The DC Project was started by champion shooter Dianna Muller in 2016 to encourage female shooters to meet with legislators in order to give politicians a direct connection to the fastest growing demographic of gun owners. Females provide unique stories and perspectives on the attraction of the 2nd Amendment, including competition shooting sports, commerce, self-defense, hunting, and conservation.

“The Second Amendment is part of the United States Constitution and does not belong to one party,” said Muller. “Female gun owners are diverse, and have individualized stories and accounts of why this Amendment is so important to them. These stories need to be shared as they are representative of many within legislators’ constituencies.”

A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League (AG & AG) is the presenting sponsor of the DC Project. With a nationwide network of firearms instructors and female gun owners, AG & AG is a strong voice for the Second Amendment. Robyn Sandoval, Executive Director, is making her third trip with the DC Project to meet with lawmakers on Capitol Hill.

“A Girl & A Gun is honored to be a part of this initiative. As a mother who was a supporter of gun control for decades, I now devote my life to empowering women with the safe use and storage of firearms,” said Sandoval. “It is important that our lawmakers learn our stories and have access to our resources for education on gun-related issues.”

The DC Project will host several events during the week as participants give speeches and meet with lawmakers to address the rising demographic of female gun ownership; the value of the 2nd Amendment in today’s society; and the importance of the preservation of America’s gun culture, from conservation and commerce to competitive sports, hunting, and self-defense.

These women are representing their individual state on this. They don’t need to have too many there at one time. Each one carries the message from their whole state on the second admendment.

The Second Amendment clearly does not “belong to one party”, but, there is primarily ONE party that stands up for the Second Amendment. Don`t confuse this very obvious point.

Fifty women, is all that we can muster? Here is what Barry Soetoro can muster: “Paul Sperry, writing for the New York Post, says, “… Oganizing For Action (Barry Soetoro’s former re-election committee) will fight President Donald Trump at every turn of his presidency…” Sperry writes that, “The ex-president has set up a shadow government to sabotage the Trump administration through a network of non-profits led by OFA, which is growing its war chest (more than $40 million) and has some 250 offices nationwide. The OFA IRS filings, according to Sperry, indicate that the OFA has 32,525 (and growing) volunteers… Read more »

I’ve been saying this for years and years now: the 2A will be protected by women. They can speak with an authority and gravitas that those in Moms Demand have to respect.

Sounds good. June 20-23, I wonder if the Senate will have brought up/voted on (that bill that has been sitting stagnant since February) Reciprocity by then?
